Highlights:

The main highlight of the area is the abundance of birds, landscapes and of course the nocturnal animals that are very special. They are the Aardvark, Aardwolf, Black-footed cat, Porcupine and the Bat-eared fox. Not easy to photograph but incredible to see. Birding is great all year round with the spring and summer months being the top months for the more elusive visitors.

Landscape photography in the wide-open spaces is also great but the highlight is the Astro Nocturnal landscape opportunities due to the lack of light pollution.
