Plains of Camdeboo Private Nature Reserve
The Plains of the Camdeboo Private Nature Reserve is situated in the Great Karoo region in the south-east interior of South Africa, north of the town of Pearston in the Eastern Cape Province. It covers 8,827 hectares, and was formed in 2009 through the consolidation of 12 separate farm portions including parts of three of the original farms in the area, namely Rustenburg, Donker Hoek and Onverwagt.
The 8 827 hectare Plains of the Camdeboo Private Nature Reserve, established in 2009, is situated in the Great Karoo region of the Eastern Cape Province. The primary aim of the reserve is to conserve, and where necessary, restore the natural landscape and its constituent habitats, species, ecological process and cultural heritage. The land is being restored through indigenous planting and prevention of soil erosion, and indigenous animal species have been reintroduced to the area. Wilderness Foundation Africa manages this process on behalf of the Mai Family Foundation which owns the land. The reserve is also included in the Mountain Zebra Camdeboo Protected Environment, proclaimed in March 2016.
