In conjunction with two neighbours (The Cape Garden Centre and Wild Clover Farm) Villiera set aside 220ha of land as a wildlife sanctuary in 2009. It includes 12 dams plus marsh areas which attract a huge variety of bird-life. Over 100 000 indigenous trees have been planted, many donated by the Cape Garden Centre. A number of mammals have been introduced in the Wildlife sanctuary: Springbuck, Kudu, Giraffe,Bontebok, Eland, Gemsbok, Black Wildebeest, Bush Pig, Burchell’s Zebra, common Duiker,Steenbuck and Grysbok. This Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in Koelenhof and access is gained through Villiera’s vineyards. A game drive through the 220 hectares lasts approximately two hours.
