Karkloof Nature Reserve Trail Camera Sightings

The indigenous forest of the Karkloof Nature Reserve is home to a variety of bird and mammal species, like those you’ll find on our bird and mammal lists over on our Activities page.

We have set up a trail camera on our MTB trail near the hidden waterfall which is in the heart of the forest and have been super excited to pick up caracal activity 6 times over the last 16 days.

Even though wild caracals are curious cats, they are usually very cautious of humans.Caracals are primarily nocturnal and normally start hunting for prey in early evening typically remaining active until sunrise. They prey on many bird and mammal species.
