- approximately 80km west - and some 90km's from Pretoria,

and pinks of the many flowers – aloes, daisies, gladiola,
wild dagga, morning glory, cats whiskers, star lily to mention
but a few.

in awe, and see cape vultures and black eagles circling
on the air current. Mountain reedbuck, grey rhebok, duiker,
klipspringers, baboons, jackal, genet, Cape hares, dassies,
porcupines all have their home here. The rock formations
are fascinating and there are little surprises to enchant
you, such as a circle of rocks to ponder over. The rose

dense indigenous trees and ferns, beg to be explored.
