Makalali Game Reserve

The Reserve overlooks the majestic Drakensberg mountain range in the Limpopo Province. It is bisected by the perennial Makhutswi River, a tributary of the Olifant’s River, and includes approximately 10 km of the Selati River frontage.

The Reserve was established to promote the conservation of the land and wildlife within its boundaries. Besides enhancing biodiversity, this initiative has become the drawcard for visiting tourists; potential new landowners to expand the Reserve, its goals and objectives; and solely for the pleasure and lifestyle of the resident landowners.

The Reserve is home to the Big 5, with previously extirpated species including lion, elephant, rhino, hippo, cheetah, hyena and disease-free buffalo, being reintroduced. Leopard, brown hyena and the smaller mammal species as well as the endangered ground hornbill and the many threatened and endangered vulture and raptor species are present on the Reserve.
