About Crown River Safari

Crown River Safari and Wildlife Reserve is home to the Crown Eagle, Fish Eagles and Kingfishers, just some of the kaleidoscope of bird species nesting in habitation along the river banks.

Kudu majestically roam the bushveld while zebra graze lazily on the open plains. Nyala and bushbuck appear from the lengthening shadows and Largemouth Bass glide below in rock crevices as the crimson sunset gives way to a shimmering moon reflected on the water. Several other species brought back from the brink of extinction also enjoy the ecological harmony.

The Reserve borders the Thomas Baines Nature Reserve, situated in the main water catchment area of Grahamstown at the confluence of two rivers. Malaria-free, the area is known as Frontier Country, embracing a variety of cultures from existing tribes to others establishing themselves as early as 1812.

Perfectly balanced, Crown River is a nature lover’s paradise with dense ravine thickets, scattered thorn trees, and open areas making this an idyllic outdoor experience. The Crown River philosophy is driven by making quality and lasting friendships, bringing guests closer to nature, and ensuring that they experience enduring memories.

Lovely remote location, beautiful scenery.

13 February 2012

It was really lovely. We were bowled over by the accommodation, so much so that we stayed an extra night. A lot of thought has gone into providing everything that a guest might need. Beautiful view, quite and peaceful. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We had a great time at a really beautiful venue and were well looked after by Vaughan and Hennie.
