Game Viewing and Hunting in East Griqualand, Southern Kwa-Zulu Natal.

The Matatiele Mountain Lake and Commonage covers an area of 5000-Ha. The Matatiele TLC is formulating plans to turn the whole area into a game and nature reserve. This will ensure the preservation of the diverse flora and fauna. The lake is home to the rare Rudd's lark, one of only two known nesting sites in SA. The yellowbreasted pipit, oribi and common reedbuck are also found here. Once fencing has been completed blesbuck, black wildebeest, Burchell's zebra, red hartebeest, eland, grey rhebuck and grey duiker will be re-introduced. Covering an area of 30-Ha, the lake is 6-m deep in places and is stocked with rainbow trout. The 12-km climb from the town to the pristine wetland and rolling grasslands at 2000-m gives a breathtaking view across the Cedarville Flats to the Drakensberg.
