  • Interesting Place Accommodation
    Why is your establishment interesting?
    Welbedacht is a declared (Contract) Nature Reserve under a long-term stewardship agreement with Cape Nature. This means that although Welbedacht is privately owned and managed, it falls under the same classification as provincial nature reserves. The reason for this is that Welbedacht has a very high concentration of red-listed (critically endangered) plant species. There are, for example, quite a few wildflowers found here that exist no-where else on this planet! We persevere to protect the fauna and enhance the small game, bird, reptile and even insect life. We have a variety of game roaming the reserve including Zebra, Black Wildebeest, Springbok, Duiker, Klipspringer and Grysbok. You may also spot several other species as well; these range from the Dwarf and Giant Mongoose, Polecat-ferret and Porcupine to a range of Tortoises and a spectacular number of bird species. A variety of cats have been spotted from time to time, too; these include the Cape Mountain-leopard, the Caracal, Cerval, Genet and the Wild Cats. Last but not least we have our roaming herd of adopted wild horses; these beauties are harmless, extremely curious of everything going on. With wild life, walking trails, biking trails, a swimming dam, views down the valley and a labyrinth to explore - a visit to Welbedacht is bound to be a memorable adventure!
