Matatiele nature reserve serves a tranquil and quiet atmosphere with soothing sounds from
various bird species every now and then.
This reserve lies beside the south of the town of Matatiele and is cared for by the local municipality making it a national heritage with a lake that offers 30 ha of deep, trout-filled waters, with rolling grasslands and pristine wetlands.
It also comprises of pastures, patches of Protea woodlands, rocky slopes and beautiful views of the resting hills and Drakensberg mountain range. The pasture is short enough for some wild animals such as the rudd’s lark to survive in, making the reserve to be one of the few reserves in South Africa for these endangered species to inhabit.
The ancient San rock art gives a touch of history and aesthetics that the municipality has proudly preserved. Bird lovers are in for a treat in this reserve, since there is a variety of bird species like the woodpecker, Gurney’s sugarbird, Cape eagle owl and many more.
Wild animals including the red hartebeest and mountain reedbuck are some of the latest additions to the Matatiele nature reserve.
A visit to this nature reserve will pay off to any outdoor enthusiast.
