Fauna and Flora

Located in lowveld bush to the south of Kruger National Park, this 4000 hectare conservancy is home to a vast array of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles. The reserve is a mixture of lowveld savannah and thick bushveld making for a highly varied biome. Through hard work and perseverance, Kwa Madwala today boasts a hugely diverse variety of wildlife, both big and small. We take pleasure in showing you not only the big 5 of course, but also in highlighting the unusual, the small and the rare.

Elephant Back Safaris
Traversing the African veld in the company of these majestic giants is a rare privilege indeed. With ears flapping noisily, trunks swinging and the soft padding of huge feet this is an incredible experience. Following a carefully planned route through the reserve, gently amble across the bush getting closer to wildlife than is usual. Antelope, zebra and wildebeest will continue to graze unconcerned by the proximity of the elephants with their human companions atop.
