Makalali Private Game Reserve

Founded in 1994 this privately owned conservation area sprawls across 26 000 hectares of Acacia bush and open savannah grassland in the low veld region of the Limpopo Province.
What sets the bushveld of the Makalali Private Game Reserve apart from the Kruger and other lowveld reserves is you get magnificent viewpoints atop surging hills, each offering tremendous panoramic views of the marula, knobthorn and jackalberry tree-scattered reserve.

Makalali (which means ‘place of rest’ in Shangaan) Private Game Reserve represents a conservation mission to expand South Africa's green frontier by re-establishing the ancient wildlife migration routes that linked the famous Kruger Park in the east to the lush Drakensberg Mountains in the west. In the process, animal species such as the lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant and rhinoceros have all been reintroduced to the wild, making Makalali home to over one thousand wild animals including the legendary Big Five.
