Blouberg Nature Reserve

In association with KuneMoya and Blouberg Nature Reserve, Johna is able to offer walking trails in this unique and diverse area.  

Based at either the rustic Tamboti tented camp or Modumele wilderness camp, the 4 night walking trails for 6 guests explores the eastern Blouberg Mountain and the savannas around the base of the mountain. This mountain-plains combination underlies the interesting biodiversity, especially trees.

Besides the usual savanna game, Blouberg is home to buffalo, leopard, sable, and the reserve icon – one of the largest vulture breeding colonies in Southern Africa with over 800 pairs of endangered Cape Vultures. A highlight of the walking trails is a tough but exhilarating one day trail up the eastern Blouberg Mountain to view the vultures from the top of the cliffs as they ride the updraft or soar above. This is an unbelievable experience with hundreds of vultures above, at and below eye-level, close enough for one to feel part of their community. The experience is so different from seeing vultures squabbling at a carcass and much more intimate than following them as mere specks in the sky.

Blouberg Vulture Trail

Blouberg is a 9,320 hectare Limpopo Parks provincial nature reserve situated in the arid bushveld region of Limpopo province. The reserve was proclaimed in 1983 after the land was bought from farmers. It is named after Blouberg Mountain which is a western outlier of the Soutpansberg Mountain range.

The varying topography, from mountain down to the plains, lends itself to a rich diversity of habitats. Blouberg prides itself on its Cape Vulture breeding colony, located on the southern side cliffs of eastern Blouberg Mountain.  The colony contains over 800 pairs of endangered Cape Vultures.  Kunemoya hold the tourism concession.
