Premier Private Reserve Holidays in the Highveld

The area above the Drakensberg escarpment in Mpumalanga, Limpopo, Gauteng and Northwest provinces is known as the highveld. Mostly at an altitude of 5000ft or more above sea level, it is cooler and drier then the lowveld, but also has magnificent bushveld.


Situated in the Waterberg this 72 000 acre reserve is a two and a half hour drive or 45 minute flight from Johannesburg.

It has the Big 5 and over 40 other species of animals and 300 species of birds, so you can see everything there.

It is malaria free and much cooler than the lowveld reserves. Private vehicles and day visitors are excluded from the reserve.

Just 50 miles north of Pretoria, the Dinokeng Game Reserve is an innovative project aiming to integrate a Big 5 nature reserve as closely as possible with local communities.

With such easy access, no malaria, and a variety of types of accommodation and activities, Dinokeng is an option for those with limited time who want to be close to the O R Tambo Airport.
