The Barberton Nature Reserve covers an area of 27 541 ha. The reserve is situated in an area of great landscape beauty and very high species diversity. These factors contribute to its conservation importance.
The Nature Reserve is located at the foot of the Hilltop road, with its own unique Sea Dam. It is 15km from Nelspruit and 30km from Barberton on the R38. The reserve has the most splendid landscape, “The meeting of the Hills”. The Noord Kaap River runs through the middle of the Reserve in a wide valley with a steep escarpment on the northern side and lower hills on the southern side of the valley. In the past, the lower lying areas along the Noord Kaap River have been prospected for Gold. The area was also grazed by livestock.
