Exceptional Plant/Tree species list of over 70 species. Including a newly described plant occurring knowingly, only at Moonriver Mountain Retreat and around Rankins Pass area

A bird list of over 150 species. The farm lies draped over a valley and the surrounding plateau. The fairly wide range of habitats located on the property offers a tantalizing list of 150 + species.


At the bottom of the valley and in the incised kloofs where spring water emerges is a flood plain with rank grasses and ferns. This plays host to Red-collared Widowbird, Cape Grassbird, Common Waxbill, Levaillant's Cisticola, and a variety of breeding weavers.


The rest of the valley floor is made of moister broadleaved woodland interspersed with patches of grass and holds a large variety of species such as Little Bee-eater, Yellow-bellied Greenbul, Lesser and Greater Honeyguides, White-crested Helmet-shrike, Brown-backed Honeybird, Southern Black Flycatcher, Bare-throated Apalis, Southern Black Tit and Common Scimitarbill among many others.


From the valley floor emerges well-wooded, steep rocky slopes of granite and quartzite ridges. Lazy Cisticola, Striped Pipit, Red-winged Starling, and Mocking Cliff Chat make this their home. At night, the characteristic calls of Freckled Nightjar and Pearl-spotted Owlet emanate from these areas.


Once over the top of the mountainsides, the habitat changes to sparsely wooded grassland where one may find Coqui Francolin, Fawn-coloured Lark, Southern Fiscal, African Stone Chat, Cape Longclaw, Banded Martin, and a variety of pipits.


In summer the air above the valley is abuzz with bee-eaters, swifts, swallows, and martins, and the breezes generated by the topography are exploited by many raptors. African Harrier Hawk and Verreaux’s Eagle are residents and other raptors that may be spotted include Brown and Black-chested Snake-Eagles, Amur and Lanner Falcons, African Hawk-Eagle, Eurasian Hobby, Vultures, and European Honey Buzzard. The majestic call of the African Fish Eagle sometimes rings out along the valley as well.


The farm boasts a high concentration of Shelley’s Francolin and with some patience and perseverance, offers birders a good chance of connecting with this special, sometimes tricky species.


Other small gems


 Home to a variety of other small creatures including many different types of reptiles and mammals.


Both the Waterberg Flat Lizard as well as the Waterberg Girdled Lizard occurs on the property, and Eastern Rock Elephant Shrew, Dwarf Mongoose, Tree Squirrel, and Mauritian Tomb Bat are not uncommon around the chalets.
