This secluded 1400 hectare reserve is also known for its botanical gems along with a wealth of cultural and historical sites such as bushman paintings and remnants of Anglo Boer War. The Witkoppen area boasts a moderate summer climate with typical Highveld thunderstorms which accentuates the dramatic beauty of cloud formations and colours that is so typical of the eastern Free State. The cold winters are extreme, often resulting in a covering of snow on the mountains and in the valley
