The Uitkamp Wetland Nature Reserve was proclaimed a nature reserve in 2001. The reserve is a precious 32 ha wetland valley in a renosterveld region, with 140 different plants and many rare species.

In spring, the reserve is home to masses of arum lilies and pink watsonias, which flower in the waterlogged central valley. The dryer edges are home to moederkappie orchids, babianas, sparaxis, moraeas, sundews and purple-and-red wine cups. The wetland valley is also home to the Cape caco frog and the Cape rain frog, both of which are threatened species.

Activities:

  • Nature walks amid a small wetland
  • Interesting plants, birds and frogs
