The reserve borders on the provincial Anysberg World Heritage Site on the southeast for about 4 km and is situated about 240 km from Cape Town in the heart of the Witteberg mountain range, midway between Touws River and Laingsburg, and southwest of the historic Matjiesfontein village.

Witterberg Nature Reserve amazes with magical mountain scenery, interesting geological formations, clear night skies and awesome silence.


Conservation Highlights:

  • Early Stone Age artefacts
  • Cultural-historic structures and ruins
  • Marine trace fossils
  • Lichens
  • Three fynbos vegetation types

The owners' main focus, as a formally proclaimed Contract Nature Reserve under the national Protected Areas Act, is the conservation of the Fynbos of the Witteberg.
