The unique Modjadji Cycad Reserve is named after the successive rain-making queens who have inhabited the area since the 16th century, guarding the ancient cycads. Close to Modjadjikloof, the 305-ha reserve features the world's largest concentration of a single-species cycad, also known as the 'Modjadji palm'.
The cycad nursery, picnic sites, day trails through the forest and information centre make this reserve a highlight on any tour of the Modjadji kingdom. On the walking trail you could come across dassies, monkeys, bushpigs, impala, nyala, bushbuck and other antelope.
Visits to the Royal Kraal can also be arranged. Tourists visiting the reserve can stay in the traditional huts of the African Ivory Route.
