The reserve is sprawled (25,000ha can’t nestle) across the towering Witteberge, through the pristine Karringmelkspruit and over lazily swaying grasslands.The altitude on the reserve ranges from 1,500m – our lowest lying riverbed – to 2,750m – our highest mountain peak. The views are unbeatable, both from the mountain peaks and the deep valley gorges.
