Destination: Caledon Nature Reserve

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Caledon Nature Reserve is renowned for its tranquility and scenic vistas. It is located between the towns of Smithfield and Wepener, bordering Lesotho. The reserve itself is situated around the slow flowing and winding Caledon River which is alive with birdlife and reed beds. It also incorporates the Welbedacht Dam.


With over 200 species of birdlife, including numerous species of water bird waiting to be snapped by eager birders and the shrill cry of the Fish Eagle taking the place of
bad rap music and congested freeways in morning rush hour, what better place to hang up your brogues and replace them with slip slops. Every true South African
should own a pair of slip slops … or two.


Several species of game can be seen within the reserve and these include Blesbok, Springbok, Zebra and African Carakal.


Fishing offers a variety of catches and these include yellowfish, barbell and carp so don’t forget to bring your rods. There is nothing like a good day’s fishing to keep the kids, and the adults entertained.
