Anysberg Nature Reserve South Africa, Oudtshoorn

Anysberg Nature Reserve

The Anysberg Nature Reserve of 62,500 ha is situated in the western Kleinkaroo region of the Western Cape province, South Africa. The central mountain is named after Anise, Pimpinella anisum, which is found here. The reserve was established in 1988 to conserve Succulent and Fynbos flora in the Cape Fold Belt, and to reintroduce game which formerly occurred here.

The nearest towns are Laingsburg and Ladismith, which are both about 55 km from the main reserve entrance.
