Kruger National Park (Mpumalanga Game Reserves)
The national reserves and parks in Mpumalanga are amongst the premier attractions in South Africa. Probably the most famous of all the national parks is the Kruger National Park, which lies across the provinces of Mpumalanga an Limpopo in the north of South Africa. The Kruger National Park has the largest concentration of game species on earth, and the best developed infrastructure of all Africa’s game parks.
The renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve is one of the oldest and largest proclaimed private reserves in South Africa. It is well known for exciting leopard sightings, this fact alone being testimony to the incredible wildlife experience that this healthy, game rich area has to offer
Also known as the Greater Makalali Private Game Reserve and one of the country’s major privately owned conservation areas, Makalali Conservancy is over 22 000 hectares set in the Lowveld region of Limpopo, an hour west of the Phalaborwa gate of the Kruger National Park and roughly 80 kilometres from Hoedspruit Airport
Makalali’s bushveld, in contrast to those reserves directly adjacent to the Kruger, is a series of undulating hills that offer incredible viewpoints and panoramic views across the reserve. Makalali Conservancy, which consists mostly of Lowveld acacia bush and open savannah grassland is intermittently scattered with beautiful examples of marula, knobthorn and jackalberry trees, and through this arid and peaceful space flows the Makhutswi River.
A mixture of wildlife include lion, leopard, elephant, cheetah and rhino, making Makalali home to a rich diversity of animals that include the ‘Big Five’
