‘Get Up Close and Personal’
Join a conservationist for the day
At Karoo Ridge Conservancy we restore and protect the natural environment while running a working farm.. Conserving biodiversity is essential to healthy ecosystems allowing plant and animal species to thrive. The greater the number of species the more sustainable the environment becomes and the better it supports the well-being of people. After all, nature is our foundation.
Why not learn more about what we do at Karoo Ridge Conservancy, and spend a day with one of our experts to experience nature conservation in action?
KRC supports a vast spectrum of wildlife and you will be able to see first hand what we are doing to restore and protect this part of the Karoo. We will show you how we manage our natural resources to create a sustainable landscape.
Would you like to see our iconic wildebeest lining up on the horizon or find the hiding place of the elusive zebra? Or we could show you how to track kudu and shy mountain reedbuck? Perhaps you would prefer a guided trek high in the Suurburg Mountains? We promise to give you a very special day tailored to your interests and particular family circumstances. Different seasons provide opportunities to see Karoo flowers and shrubs, nesting birds or migrations or to spot calves and other young animals being born. At different times of the year it may be possible to help with vegetation surveys, cattle tagging and tortoise identification.
We would love to share it with you.
