A Blast from the past… Project 365/302

14  September 2013: On Route between Upington and Calvinia.

The Akkerendam Nature Reserve was established in 1967 and is situated just outside of Calvinia. The reserve is 2750 hectares in size and incorporates the majestic Hantam Mountain.

There is a wide variety of flora and fauna to see, including sword lilies, Cape asters, and brown peppering plants. The reserve is also a proclaimed bird sanctuary with more than 65 bird species, such as the fairy flycatcher, the black-headed canary, and layard’s tit-babbler. The best time to visit the reserve is during flower season in September.

There are two hikes across the Hantam Mountain, one being relatively easier than the other. You can expect to spot the endangered sterkboom as well as the magnificent star tree which is unique to the region. Visitors can also enjoy a picnic and relax within the stunning scenery. The reserve is open daily and there is no entrance fee.

I captured the most beautiful flowers  and landscapes at Akkerendam Nature Reserve.

Calvinia is situated in the region known as the Hantam and is also near the Hantam Mountains.  The town itself was established during 1848 and named after John Calvin. Between the village and the Hantam Mountains is the Akkerendam Nature Reserve. I captured the most beautiful flowers  and landscapes at Akkerendam Nature Reserve.
