Full-Day Safari Tour with Beyond Touring & Albatros Travel
You will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the Game Reserve on your full-day safari tour, which is a 2.5 hr drive via vineyards, orchards, and magnificent scenery. Upon arrival at the reserve, you are welcomed with a chilled drink before being ushered through to the restaurant for a buffet breakfast.
Around 10h15 you depart on a 2 to 3-hour open vehicle game drive through the reserve. Having been proclaimed a nature reserve in 1985, the ‘veld’ (terrain) is in pristine condition, consisting of Renoster veld, Mountain Fynbos, and succulent vegetation types found in 3 beautiful valleys. Situated in the Karoo with its wide-open spaces, the 4,500-hectare reserve has a natural wetland and is protected by majestic mountains and valleys which makes for varied and ideal game viewing.
On your drive, you may see lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, as well as giraffe and hippo and other herd game such as Black Wildebeest and Burchell’s Zebra as well as various antelope species. The natural wetland is home to 172 species of birds and is also home to several breeding pairs of the rare and endangered black eagle, after which the reserve has been named. Following the game drive, you will have the opportunity to visit the Eco-Synergy centre where the aim is to create job opportunities to the community of Touws River and far beyond. After a well-deserved buffet lunch at the lodge’s main restaurant, you enjoy some time at leisure before starting your journey back to Cape Town.
