A wide array of activities awaits guests at Teufelskrallen. They can partake in game drives, sundowner drives, hiking expeditions, mountain biking excursions, and visits to the Devil’s Claw Site. During the game drives, visitors have the opportunity to spot various wildlife species, including giraffes, elands, black and blue wildebeests, red hartebeests, Burchell’s and Hartmann’s zebras, blesboks, impalas, nyalas, springboks, kudus, steenboks, and oryxes. The reserve also teems with smaller mammals and an abundance of birdlife. Guided and unguided walking trails are available for those who prefer to explore on foot. Mountain biking allows guests to engage in a fun and stimulating exercise while immersing themselves in the breathtaking expanse of the camelthorn savannah.
