Rust de Winter Nature Reserve Reviews
More info about Rust de Winter Nature Reserve
Lying within Limpopo Province, in a crux that borders both the Gauteng and Mpumalanga Provinces is the 1200ha Rust de Winter Nature Reserve. At some point the area was named Rust de Winter, meaning calm winter in Dutch, and a section was set aside as a nature reserve around an enormous irrigation dam. The dam occupies almost half of the entire reserve. The Eland River flows into the dam which is a sought after destination for anglers and lovers of water sports. Crocodile and hippo inhabit sections of the dam and care must be taken when entering the water.
The reserve is made up mostly of woodland, thicket along the river’s edge and grassland in the flatter parts. A number of hiking routes have been mapped out along routes where various buck species, zebra, giraffe, baboon and warthog are likely to be encountered.
