There is no thorough survey of the wildlife in the area. Animals that have been spotted during field trips include a small antelope (Guenter's Dikdik?) and monkeys (Vervet ?). Hyenas (in a fairly big number), mole rats and civet cats were indicated by droppings, holes or scent, and in the past, wild cats and even maybe leopards have been seen. Although the Eucalyptus tree offers a very poor habitat for birds, at least 16 species have been spotted, mainly along the brooks and in the open areas.
A Great Wildlife View with the Meandering streams.This plateau just above Bees' Cliff is a magnificently beautiful place with a great panorama view over the stream and many characters in the landscape. When the scene turns south, the abyss Bees' Cliff (14), the ravine is very close, where the river's further gorge meandering (35) becomes intuitively felt through the profound cooling airflow rising from the unknown abyss below the field of view.
** Caution: Bees' Cliff (14)
An Abyss Lost in Aeons and Underground Spaces
|Bees' Cliff - CAUTION|
Thus, with the assistance of dramatic beauty, attracts this place to a thrilling approach into its surprising disappearance in space and time, However, this is overall the reason for the attraction of the place where through varying and dramatic scenery, drama creates ideal habitats for wildlife that naturally utilizes this rich, three-dimensional diversity in water and rock formations.
Excellent fun canyon hike towards the high plateau.

36. A Multiple, Spatial Nature Dream.
A walk in the abyss with the secretive company of hyenas.
A pleasant eastern route along the tributary gorge 36.However, Bees' Cliff (14) and its abyss is here close and with due care; therefore, preferably to choose a more eastern path along the gorge (36). The purpose of this few minute detours is not only for increased safety but also to avoid suddenly scaring wildlife that enjoys socializing around the beautiful pools right above the plateau threshold and the abyss of Bees' Cliff (14). Naturally, therefore, it is appreciated that visitors show interest by approaching the site carefully.
The Complex Culture among the WildlifeIn this place, this is mainly the case of baboons with playful kids, caring mothers and dominant guarding males. These are advanced creatures that resemble humans in many ways and then especially their emotional behaviour. Very clearly, this is observed when wild baboons are breeding guard dogs successfully. However, baboons also use cats for an unknown reason but, explanation to this odd or cute cat keeping is maybe so simple that the rat's appetite to the same food as baboons may not be appreciated intuitively by hungry baboon families.
Absolute Caution with Injuries and LiquorThe Hyenas can show curiosity to humans, but they are above all little cautious and restrained. Since the relationship between humans and Hyenas is ancient, a type of mutual peace has evolved, and even children are naturally left untouched by Hyenas. On the other hand, Hyenas have been seen as highly interested in sick or heavily intoxicated people, just regarding this as something different from human and therefore not included in the ancient consensus of mutual respect.
Bodily Trauma and Accident RisksIt would, therefore, be possible for a person who slips and lies demobilized hidden and injured in the shady creek bed, may at last after a few days attract Hyenas to become directly fatal. They can indeed become mighty animals and especially the females who in close contact with muscular and strength resemble brown bears in a slightly reduced size.
