Flora and Fauna

Mammals

Silwervis Dam offers sighting of hippo, crocodile, bushbuck, nyala and you will perhaps be rewarded by a glimpse of the spotted prince of cats - a leopard.

The nearby Nshawu pans are an excellent area to see game as there are some open plains that host species such as blue wildebeest, Burchell's zebra, buffalo and the rarer tsessebe.

Black-backed jackal and caracal are some of the smaller more unusual species to look out for.

Vegetation

Natal mahogany, brack thorn mustard tree, sausage tree, apple leaf, mixed bushwillow, silver cluster leaf, round leafed teak, buffalothorn, sycamore fig, magic guarri, marula, jackalberry, leadwood, mopane, wilddate palm, weeping boer bean, reeds and mixed acacias can all be found in and around the Bateleur region.
