Introduction to Gariep Nature Reserve

Accommodation
After the days outdoor activities visitors can find tranquility and relax at the rest camp where they can have a braai or a cooked supper in one of the 7 self catering chalets. There are three 4-bed chalets and four 6-bed chalets with a view on the lake and the islands.

The chalets are equipped with bedding, crockery, cutlery, cookware, stove, refrigerator and a microwave oven. For those who rather prefer camping there is a camping area with 15 stands supplied with electricity. There is also a communal ablution facility to wash off the days dust.

Facilities

Onsite Facilities

The Gariep Nature Reserve is situated on the Northern shore of Lake Gariep, between the Gariep Airfield in the west and Bethulie in the east. It is about 200km from Bloemfontein and more or less halfway between Johannesburg and Cape Town. The entrance to the reserve is approximately 8km from the N1 route.

The reserve is just under 17700ha in size and is neighbored by private land owners, mostly small stock farmers. It is divided into two management sections of which the one part of 6000ha is fenced off with a game proof fence. This section is accessible to the public and provides a variety of game and birds for viewing. The other section is not accessible to the public and is mainly utilized as a breeding camp for some of the largest herds of springbok and black wildebeest in the Free State. The Gariep Nature Reserve was proclaimed in 1979 after the completion of the lake and is under the control of the Free State Provincial Government.

This reserve of contrasts with its multiple kopjes and rocky ridges are connected by planes and the vegetation varies from grasses, herbs, small to medium sized shrubs and a few single standing trees, typical of a dry karoo landscape. It is botanically classified as the Eastern Mixed Nama Karoo. The climate is also typical of the karoo with high summer and low winter temperatures. The annual rainfall varies between 300mm and 500mm per annum
