About 10km outside Kimberley on the N12. The reserve has belonged to De Beers since 1888, but it was only proclaimed a nature reserve in 2004.
12 000 hectares
Dronfield is home to a breeding colony of White-backed Vultures, which has been extensively researched for over 20 years. A vulture restaurant has been established on the reserve to enable visitors to watch these large birds at close range.
