Bergplaas Nature Reserve offers a unique environmental learning experience for people from all walks of life. Participants in our environmental programmes and visitors to Bergplaas experience the wild, natural world in a whole new dimension on our 5000-hectare proclaimed nature reserve in the Nieu Bethesda/Graaff-Reinet region of the Great Karoo. Renowned for its rugged beauty and sense of space, Bergplaas hosts two extraordinary wildlife and environment programmes on the reserve in comfortable accommodation for up to 18 participants.
Participants in our environmental programmes include local and international business executives, university students, people working in conservation and self-employed individuals. Our belief is that experiencing and learning from the environment is key to transforming our world for the better. During your time on this extremely special reserve, you’ll discover your deep connection with the natural environment and with yourself, which leads to a realisation of your role and purpose in life.
Bergplaas offers comfortable accommodation for up to 18 people in double rooms. These are shared on some of the courses and individually occupied on others. Bathrooms are shared, as are the common rooms, dining rooms, lounges, library, bomas and conference/workshop room.
