LOSKOP DAM


This is a Malaria-free area. There are close to 70 species of mammals on the reserve including 3 of the ‘Big Five’, namely; White Rhino, Buffalo and Leopard. Because of their dwindling numbers, Oribi, White Rhino, Buffalo and Sable Antelope enjoy special protection.

Game viewing by boat with qualified guides is a highlight. The Dam area is a bird watchers’ paradise where you will find the majestic fish eagle along with several other species of eagle and countless other birds flourishing in the natural surroundings.

 

 

THE WHITE CHURCH


Dutch Reformed Church

Built in 1890, it has served as the focal point for the district ever since. The Nagmaal (Communion) was originally held here by Voortrekkers.

Proclaimed a historical monument, this is a landmark of the central town area, due to its size and gracious architectural design. British soldiers used it during the Second Anglo Boer War, which explains why it did not get damaged like so many other churches during that time.
