About Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy

Amongst the many wine estates in the region lies the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy. Renosterveld is a threatened type of vegetative habitat (like fynbos) that is in very low supply. It is threatened by human beings, pollution, imbalances in the biodiversity of the region it occupies, and the threat of being dominated by fynbos. This floristic region boasts about 9 000 different plant species, well over two-thirds of which are endemic.

The very fertile soils make this conservancy fabulous for grazers. Some of its residents include mountain zebra and leopard, as well as a number of antelope and the caracal, porcupine, Cape clawless otter, bat-eared fox, small spotted genet, mongoose, Cape cobra, and Cape girdled lizard. Because of the number of endangered species within the area, there are major efforts to continue in the conservation and protection of the vegetation and wildlife of Bottelary Hills.

Within the conservancy are a number of mountain biking trails. These are all located on private property, so there are strict rules in place for those wanting to explore the area on their bikes. There is a great variety of trails, and there is sure to be a trail that suits your abilities and needs. The magnificence of the surrounding vistas makes any cycling trail a truly memorable one for its idyllic backdrop.
