Deep within the Karoo Heartland, along the Kraai River banks, lies the 1 500 hectares of the Fonteinbos Nature Reserve.

The Fontainbos reserve, just outside the small town of Aberdeen, is both beautiful and functional, as its natural spring (Die Oog) supplies the entire town and its agricultural sector with its water.

Fonteinbos is popular amongst nature enthusiasts as it is home to a plethora of wildlife species. These include many antelope, as well as ostriches, samango monkeys, and a host of birdlife. These are best enjoyed on one of the many walking trails or on a game drive.

The prehistoric history of the Karoo is fascinating, and visitors are invited to follow the fossilised dinosaur tracks in the rock formations for a taste of this history.
