Game Viewing in the Drakensberg

Game Viewing in the Drakensberg

Although the main attraction in our magnificent Drakensberg mountain range is hiking, we are also privileged to have several game reserves within easy driving distance.

The Big 5 are on show at Nambiti Game Reserve close to Ladysmith, with a variety of up-market accommodation lodges from where the game drives emanate. 

The Spionkop Game Reserve, bordering the banks of the Spionkop Dam, has a variety of plains game and white rhino. Twice daily for years, horse rides have created a wonderful game viewing experience with the horses and animals comfortable with each other’s presence. Self-drive within the park is permitted.

A real bushveld game reserve is to be found near Weenen, 30 km from Estcourt, with self-drive game viewing traversing both savannah and thornveld ‘koppies’ with plains game and white rhinos. The ZuluWaters Reserve, near Wagendrift Dam, provides game drives and walks.
