Our 12.000 ha Reserve is situated in Zululand. Here you can find a subtropical landscape with high mountains and wonderful valleys. From the luxurious lodge we also have access to other hunting areas in close proximity.

The variety of the game and the beauty of the unique landscape provide an attraction to every guest. Zululand is the best choice for hunters and their families as the Indian Ocean is a mere 2 hours away.

Species

The Reserve ranges in altitude from 400m above sea level, down in the valleys, up to 1000m above sea level on the highest Mountain. This brings a very diverse spectrum of habitats.

Habitats ranges from wide open Savannahs on top of the mountains to thick tropical forest next to the rivers, down in the valleys. Such a diverse habitat then also constitutes a very diverse spectrum of species.
