Kwa Madwala Reserve
We depart from Johannesburg early today, journeying through the Mpumalanga province on the way to the magnificent Kruger National Park. At midday we make our way into the Kwa Madwala Game Reserve, situated just south of the Kruger Park. Once we’ve settled in, we experience a night game drive and, when we return, we are treated to local dancing and a delicious supper. Keep a look out for gleaming eyes in the dark and keep your camera at the ready.
Meaning ‘place of rock’, Kwa Madwala is an independent wildlife conservation that spreads over 4000 hectares of the Lowveld located just south of the breathtaking Kruger National Park. It is somewhat new having started ten years ago, but has a well-managed ecosystem that sustains lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and a massive range of other animals and bird species. The attention is not only on the large game here, but also on the small and uncommon. Because of the tiny size of the reserve, guests will be able to get up close and personal to most of the animals encountered on a game drive. Kwa Madwala has also started a Leopard Conservation Project in order to give leopards in the region a secure sanctuary to reside in, and to slowly increase their population.
