The UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere Reserve is home to predators, one of which is the rare and elsuive leopard.
Although our particular area is mainly home to buffalo and plains game, the majestic leopard does roam the surrounding mountains and dwells deep within the vegetation.
The Waterberg has a wide variety of flora and fauna. The diverse reserve sustains over 40 species of game including buffalo, sable, giraffe, nyala, gemsbok (oryx), kudu, eland, blue wildebeest (gnu), red hartebeest, zebra, impala, bushbuck, duiker, steenbuck, mountain reedbuck, waterbuck, warthog, blesbuck, baboons, bushpig, klipspringer, leopard, jackal, brown hyena, caracal, civet and genet to name but a few.
The Waterberg is home to plenty of birds, and there are over a 150 species of bird spotted here at Bushwa. The variety of savannah types, plains and diverse flora provides the perfect habitat for birds such as sugarbirds, Cape vulture, half-collared kingfishers, white-backed night herons, Verraux's eagle-owl, mountain wagtails and ant-eating chat.
