Game Reserve Wines: The Eland

Game Reserve Wines: The Eland

Derived from the Dutch meaning elk, the eland (Taurotragus oryx) is the largest antelope in Africa with an average weight of around 700 kg. Despite this bulk it can jump with ease up to two metres high. These browsers are perfectly adapted to the Karoo, requiring a substantial grazing area, a commodity very rare in wine production areas.

Game Reserve Wines: The Cape Clawless Otter

Game Reserve Wines: The Cape Clawless Otter

The Cape clawless otter (Anonyx capensis) is the larger of the two species found on the African continent. Humans are the most significant threat to this species with degraded river systems and overfishing posing a far greater threat than hunting. Fortunately through the diligent restoration of the Vink River which runs through the Graham Beck Private Nature Reserve we've successfully been able to provide a safe habitat for this remarkable creature, encouraging a healthy re-population and providing regular sightings along the river banks.

Game Reserve Wines: The Bat-Eared Fox

Game Reserve Wines: The Bat-Eared Fox

Aptly named the bat eared fox (Otocyon megalotis) these fascinating little creatures have large ears which can pinpoint sounds underground with 100% accuracy. Active during the day and night, they feed mainly on termites and live in old ant bear dens in the ground. We are actively trying to protect this unique species, indigenous to our Robertson estate, as they are often identified by farmers as jackals and killed - a practice we’re striving to eradicate.

Game Reserve Wines: The Cape Eagle Owl

As one of the world's largest and most powerful owls, the Cape Eagle Owl (Bubo capensis) plays an essential role as a top predator. If the species were to disappear, the entire ecosystem would be in jeopardy. These regal birds of prey hunt from roadside roosts such as telephone poles and fence posts - many are killed by vehicles.

With its striking black and white plumage and haunting call, the fish eagle (Haliaeetus vocifer) is a well loved African symbol with an impressive wingspan of around two metres. These splendid birds of prey can be seen soaring above our Robertson estate scaring small birds away, thereby preventing damage to the ripe grapes before harvest.
