Villiera Game Drive

Together with two neighbours Villiera set aside 230 Ha of land to form a Wildlife Sanctuary for game. These conservation efforts take place alongside a determined indigenous tree-planting project. Over 100,000 indigenous trees have been planted to green fallow land and to mitigate our carbon footprint.

The Sanctuary includes 12 dams plus marsh areas which attract a huge variety of bird-life. Indigenous trees are grown in old milk containers, plastic water bottles etc. by their staff and then bought from them when a year old and planted out. Thousands of indigenous trees have also been donated by the Cape Garden Centre.

Several mammals have been introduced in the Wildlife Sanctuary:
Springbuck, Kudu, Giraffe, Bontebok, Eland, Gemsbok, Black Wildebeest, Bush Pig, Burchell’s Zebra, common Duiker,  Steenbuck,  Waterbuck and Grysbok.
