Description

The Bloubos Trail is an easy trail that is ideal for beginners as there are virtually no obstacles. The start of the trail is covered with tree tops as it follows along the Klip Rivier but opens up into a bushveld environment after roughly a kilometer. This trail will take you past some Rondawels constructed in the early 1850's, and toward a historic landmark, the Marais Farmstead.

Flora & Fauna

The reserve is home to approximately 215 bird species, which include Barbet's, Swifts, Swallows, Crows and Doves, and 9 large mammal species which include Zebra's, Black Wildebeest, Blesbok, Springbok and Red Hartebeest.

There is also an assortment of insect life, which includes various butterflies, geckos and lizards. Smaller mammals in the reserve include Klip Dassies.
