Escorted Rail Tours to Featherbed Nature Reserve

See the rare Blue Duiker antelope

The Featherbed Nature Reserve is located on the western edge of Knysa, and is known to local people as a 'pristine piece of paradise'. The reserve is only accessible by ferry, and even then access to the enclosure is tightly controlled, to ensure the continued protection of the land and its natural beauty. Conservations at the Featherbed Nature Reserve tend to be dedicated more to flora than to animals, though there is one exception - the Blue Duiker, a small species of antelope.

The conservation project was started in 1985 after a rapid decrease in their numbers, and so far the efforts have been successful. It is likely you will see Blue Duiker in their special breeding encampment, however, the public are not allowed too close to them for obvious reasons.
