Cape Leopard Trust

The Cape Leopard Trust aims to optimally facilitate conservation of the Cape’s predator diversity through simultaneously implementing conservation strategies, research projects and tourism initiatives.
It also educates and encourages the youth to have a vested interest in the environment.

Quinton Martins initiated the Trust and is the project manager and main researcher, based in the Cederberg. Elizabeth Martins runs the Education and Outreach Programmed, holding environmental camps and outings for children, also based in the Cederberg. The Cape Leopard Trust is also working in Namaqualand and the Gouritz corridor.

Oudrif supports this project.

Oudrif Straw Bale Retreat Cederberg

Oudrif is a fully catered lodge situated on the banks of the Doring River at the Northern foothills of the Cederberg. Providing stylish accommodation in 5 individual straw bale cottages, for people who relish peace and quiet. Winter rains bring the largest outdoor flower display in the world; the pristine river provides opportunity for paddling, swimming, fishing and sun bathing on secluded beaches. The area whispers of our past from Stone Age tools to San rock art. Our rates include - all meals, beer, wine and soft drinks served in the central boma; daily guided walks and excursions. You just need to jump in your car with your clothes and toothbrush, we provide everything else. Our eco-friendly lodge accommodates a maximum of ten guests. We are solar powered so you can turn off all your devices and enjoy true peace and quiet. The straw bale cottages are environmentally friendly, providing excellent insulation in both hot and cold weather thus reducing the need for conventional power; there are fans for summer and gas heaters in winter.

The sun is out and after the rain the veld is transforming. It is green and there are some flowers starting to pop up already. The river is running and the air is clear! What a great start to July.
