Oviston Nature Reserve
Protected area in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. The nature reserve is managed by Eastern Cape Parks. It is located on the southern shores of the Gariep Dam.
It lies close to the little Karoo town of Oviston and Venterstad roughly two hours’ drive from Bloemfontein.
Being that it is in the Karoo should impart the potential for blinding hot summer days, but along with this slight discomfort come crisp, cool evenings, extraordinary sunsets (apparently due to the high level of dust), and a beautiful landscape of wide open grasslands, little ‘koppies’ and a sky that goes on forever.
- Accommodates tents & caravans.
