We are some friends from Norways whos gonna boulder in the rockland area, in june. Considering that the most dangerous animal youd be likley to encounter in norway whilst bouldering, is a ram, we are surching for info on the wildlife in the area around Rocklands... If any of you could pinpoint us in the right direction, maybe set us up with a link to interesting sites on the web, concerning this topic... and others, we would really apreciate it!

Worst case scenario would be a snake I reckon. See http://www.climb.co.za/article.asp?id=17

Next would be baboons (which you might well come across). Baboons are very strong with BIG teeth and should be avoided (dont bother them and they won't bother you. Its quite inspiring watching them solo incredibly hard stuff.

There are leopards but they are very shy and avoid humans, so you probably wont see any.

I would be most worried about those cape climbers, they like to scream a helluva lot, they are really scary, perhaps they bite.

There is really no reason to worry about wild animals in Rocklands. Snakes are probably the most dangerous thing you will encouter during your stay but I've spend alot of time in the area and have seen more leopards than snakes, which says alot!
In my opinion, the most dangerous thing about climbing up there is if you injure yourself in the middle of nowhere...
