Bateleur Nature Reserve
Escape to the tranquillity and seclusion of The Waterberg, with more than 3,000 hectares to explore. Indulge in the beauty of nature with deep gorges and clear rock pools. Unique Fauna and Flora abound in this bird-watchers’ and wildlife paradise. Our Nature Reserve is famous for its SAHTOA accredited Stamvrug Hiking Trails, consisting of ten different circular - and day trails, laid out amongst the kloofs and escarpments. Stay in self-catering secluded farmhouses, Cabins or Base Camps. Enjoy hiking, game viewing, bird watching, mountain biking and swimming but first and foremost relaxing in the Waterberg Wilderness.
Bateleur is also the only home to the Erikssonia edgei, the "Waterberg Copper" Butterfly which was re-discovered at Bateleur in March 2013 after an “absence” of more than 20 years. We like to think that we are doing something right from a conservation point of view.
