The SS Skhosana Nature Reserve
The reserve displays an abundance of antelope species which include Wildebeest, which were re-introduced into the region, as well as Burchell's Zebra , Kudu, Bushbuck and Grey Duiker, which prefer to inhabit the slightly more dense woodland areas around hills and along streams. Predators to be found in the SS Skhosana Nature Reserve include Leopard and hyena, though both are noctunal species, and day sightings prove to be rare. Less elusive are the Chachma Baboons, whose troop dominate the rocky outcrops in the reserve, often making themselves heard, providing each other with an effective warning system at the sight of any danger. The SS Skhosana Nature Reserve is also home to a large variety of bushveld bird species, which include Freckelled Nightjar, Spotted Eagle Owl, Mocking Chat, Rock Bunting, and African Hawk Eagle, of which a pair are often seen near the entrance to the reserve.
The three-day Tjhetjhisa Hiking Trail which runs through the reserve can accommodate two groups of up to eight people, traveling in opposite directions. Beginning from the northern corner, the trail runs a course of seventeen kilometres, and provides basic overnight facilities at two overnight huts. More detailed information on the trail and facilities is available on request.
