A Spotting of Wildlife at Paul Clüver Family Wines

Driving into De Rust Farm, home of Paul Clüver Family Wines, visitors might find two or more bontebok (Damaliscus pygargus) grazing or looking bemusedly at passersby. These beautiful antelope, with their white masked faces and ebony hides, have been residents since 2005, when Dr Paul Clüver received a few full-grown bonteboks on his birthday. They have quickly adapted to the conditions on De Rust and the Groenlandberg.

Since the first bontebok arrived, their numbers have grown to a degree where they are familiar sights for those working and living on the farm and visitors, further entrenching our true ethos as a sustainable farm where all of nature can find a home.
