Mount Sheba Nature Reserve

Event information

Mount Sheba Nature Reserve lies in amongst mountain peaks just above the historical town of Pilgrims Rest. It covers 1110 ha and includes steep hillsides covered in dense afromontane forest in the upper reaches, with thorny thicket on the lower slopes, river valleys and gardens.

The upper slopes of the reserve give way to open grassland and are covered in beautiful examples of Protea, and these, together with an array of rocky outcrops and boulders, attract birds such as the African cuckoo hawk, the forest canary, the Africa emerald cuckoo, Cape eagle-owl, blue-mantled crested flycatcher and Gurney’s sugarbird. The gardens at Mount Sheba are an excellent source of not only birds, such as the malachite sunbird, but pretty flowering plants, fruit trees and open lawns that provide a space to catch sight of the southern double-collared sunbird and the Knysna turaco.

Asides from its various lodging options, Mount Sheba also has facilities such as its own spa, a conferencing area and a wedding venue.

Venue address: Rural, 561kt, Grootfonteinberg Lydenburg St, Pilgrimsrest
