Welcome to the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve
On the southern edge of Africa lies a place all humans can call “home” – the place where almost 200 000 years ago our earliest modern ancestors began their journey across Africa and the world. This place is located in the heart of the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve.
By the year 2020 the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve supports a system of sustainable living landscapes that is representative of the region’s biodiversity through the co-existence of all stakeholders.
We take ownership of the sustainable utilization of the unique biodiversity of the area by ensuring global recognition through partnerships, continuous awareness and responsible decision-making for the benefit of all people, now and in the future.
