Bontebok National Park is home to approximately 200 bird species and is a bird watchers paradise. It is known as an excellent place to view Denham’s bustard. View birds from the deck of your chalet, from a self-drive through the park, or while relaxing on the banks of the Breede River. There are no formalised bird hides within the park, but the open skies and landscapes make an easy spot.
Bontebok National Park is home to bontebok, grey rhebuck, red hartebeest as well as many smaller mammals. Take yourself and your family on a drive around the park and spot as many animals as you can.
The park has 3 nature-hiking trails, starting and ending in the rest camp area for overnighters and old pump house for day visitors. Bathing, angling and fishing can all be enjoyed in the Breede River. There are several mountain bike routes in the park, where you can enjoy a cycle. Information is available at the park reception office.
