Kgaswane Mountain Reserve

North West Province

The Kgaswane Mountain Reserve is a place of special beauty, an escape into a mountain range of great natural appeal and an ideal destination for a day's outing.

There is a self-drive route on tarred roads which link a number of picnic sites and view points. It is also a great place to walk and enjoy the wildlife, especially the resident sable antelope.

Twitchers will have much to twitch about with over 320 bird species having been recorded, including a breeding colony of cape vultures. Nesting pairs of martial and black eagles are also of great interest.

Walking on the wild side, the reserve caters for a wide range of interests and is famous as a hiking destination. Two trails are open to the public.

These overnight trails are extremely popular and early booking is essential. The Summit Route is 25.3 km and, for the first time, includes the Natural Pools in which swimming is permitted. The Baviaanskrans Route is 19.5 km and includes the Waterfall View and the Garden of Remembrance. The trails have amenities to accommodate 12 hikers.

The Peglarae Trail is a day excursion of approximately 5.5 km over fairly steep and rocky terrain.

The shorter Vlei Ramble, just 2 km, takes visitors to a viewing hut on the vlei - a favourite spot for the many birders who enjoy the reserve.
