Articles: South Africa Game Reserves

When on holiday in South Africa, game reserve visits are a must

When going on vacation in South Africa, game reserve getaways are always a very popular choice, and it is no wonder why. The country offers a diverse landscape filled with breathtaking natural wonders, and abundance of wildlife that can hardly be matched by any other location on this planet. Visiting one of these amazing sites gives you the opportunity to truly experience the real spirit of Africa, in all its untouched glory.

There are a number of world-class game parks in South Africa. Game reserve number 1 in everybody’s mind is probably the legendary Kruger National Park. Covering approximately 19 000 km2 (± 7 400 mi2), its 147 species of mammals include, of course, the Big Five – the lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros. Other animals include zebras, giraffes, cheetahs and a wide variety of bucks, 114 species of reptiles, and about 517 species of birds among others.

Nestled in an ancient volcanic crater in the Pilanesberg Mountains, you will find a breathtaking piece of nature, preserved in its pristine form by the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Wildlife is abundant in the reserve as well, including animals such as zebras, hyenas, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles and also the Big Five.

You can also choose to do a day tour to places such as the De Wildt Centre or the Lion Safari Park, Apart from seeing wildlife here in their natural habitat, you will also have the opportunity to pet a lion cub or even to feed a giraffe.
