Fort Fordyce Nature Reserve


Fort Fordyce Nature Reserve is situated between Fort Beaufort and Adelaide. There are ancient remnants of rock art from the first people to inhabit the area, the San people.

The reserve's escarpment is covered in grasslands and there are many indigenous forests, valleys, and rocky cliffs. There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen, such as black wildebeest, red hartebeest, bush buck, mountain reedbuck, blue duiker and tree dassie.

Bird watchers can expect to spot the Cape parrot, eagles, Knysna loeries, sunbirds, flycatchers and hornbills. Bass fishing, horse riding and hiking are some of the many activities visitors can enjoy in the reserve.
