The Waterberg Nature Conservancy (WNC) was formed in 1989 among three landowners – Lapalala Wilderness, Touchstone Game Ranch and Kwalata. Since its establishment, the Conservancy has evolved into an important voluntary organisation in the Waterberg, advocating nature conservation and environmental protection, all the while educating its members and the community.
The vast Waterberg plateau is dissected by numerous rivers, principally the Mokolo which rises in the southern hills and the Palala (Lephalala) which rises in the south-east.  The Waterberg is home to hundreds of bird species, of which 21 are threatened. The large rivers, streams and wetlands, cliffs and mountainous areas are important habitats for many game species. Conservation efforts protect not only the charismatic creatures the Waterberg is renowned for, but also precious ecosystems and vegetation types endemic to the region.

 

Birding

The Waterberg is home to hundreds of bird species, of which 21 are threatened.
