Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve - An Ecological Adventure

When visiting the picturesque town of Heidelberg, there is one attraction that should not be missed out on: the Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve.

The Suikerbosrand Mountain Range forms the backdrop for the reserve, which offers hiking trails and game drives to view the magnificent fauna and flora.

Mountain biking and bird watching are also popular activities in the reserve and visitors will find the Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve to be as educational as it is inspirational.
