Aasvoëlberg or “Vulture Mountain” overlooks Willowmore and the district. There is a road going all the way to the top and is accessible with a normal 2×4 Bakkie. It is one of the few places in the Karoo where you can find proteas and other fynbos species as well as succulents.
The sandstone rock formation on the mountain is a must see. The panoramic view from the top of Aasvoëlberg is breath taking and you just realize how much beauty you are surrounded by.
The area is also rich in bird life and the Cape Sugar bird is often sighted.
The mountain which is located on Finchley Farm offers a wide variety of activities:
- A number of trails offers the hiker the chance to explore the flora, fauna and birdlife of the mountain.
- The rugged terrain provides even the most experienced mountain biker with exciting and challenging trails.
- For the adrenalin junky, the mountain lends itself to spectacular Para-gliding and adventurous abseiling.
