The Witteberg Nature Reserve is situated about 250 km from Cape Town in the heart of the Witteberg mountain range, midway between Touws River and Laingsburg and south-west of the historic Matjiesfontein village.

The self-catering accommodation offers a 5-sleeper apartment with 2 bedrooms and a sleeper couch in the living room, a 4-sleeper apartment with 2 bedrooms, a 2-sleeper open plan apartment and a rustic historic cottage sleeping up to 8 people and where camping is allowed. The units are fully furnished and equipped for self-catering purposes and include bed-linen and bath towels. There is cutlery, crockery and most of the kitchen utensils guests would require. Mobile braai units are available.

The water meets SABS standards for household use and human consumption. Just bring along food things and drinks as there is no shop in the reserve, nor are any catering services offered.

The reserve spans 4365 hectares of mountainous terrain, being a transition zone from the Little Karoo to the Great Karoo. The main focus is the conservation of the Fynbos of the Witteberg.

Magical mountain scenery, Early Stone Age artefacts, cultural-historic structures and ruins, interesting geological formations, wildlife, bird life, lichens, marine trace fossils, three Matjiesfontein Fynbos vegetation types and clear night skies create a unique sense of place and ensure that there is something to interest all nature lovers.
