Kwa Madwala Reserve
Kwa Madwala, meaning ‘place of rock’, is an independent wildlife conservancy covering 4 000 hectares of the Lowveld just south of the mighty Kruger National Park. It is relatively new, started 10 years ago, and has a well-managed eco-system supporting lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and a wide variety of other general game as well as a diverse birdlife. The focus is not only on the big game here, but also the small and the rare. Due to the small size of the reserve, guests can expect to get close to most species on a game drive. Kwa Madwala has also initiated a Leopard Conservation Project to provide a safe haven for leopards in the area, and gradually increase their numbers.

Day 2 Kruger National Park
Before leaving Kwa Madwala we have a morning guided walk, and then spend the afternoon game driving in Kruger NP. Keep your eyes open for the ‘Big Five’ – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. Our truck gives us a more elevated view of the park, and it’s easier to spot big cats and other smaller game that can be hiding in the vegetation. Optional Activities: Night game drive with SANP Game Ranger.

Kruger National Park
Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares is unrivalled in the diversity of its wildlife and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies. Approximately 145 mammal species including the ‘Big Five’, a list of over 500 bird species, some of which are not to be found elsewhere in South Africa, and 336 tree species occur in the park.
When the first tourist cars visited the park in 1927, they made their own camps in thorn-bush enclosures and had to carry weapons to protect themselves from predators. During the Second World War the park was closed to the public, and reopened in 1946 under new management. Today it is one of the most famous safari destinations in the world with all the facilities that one would expect from a world class holiday destination, but it has retained the untamed, unspoilt environment where you can experience Africa just as you imagined it.

Day 3 Kruger National Park
