About

Visitors to the Krugersdorp Game Reserve get to see plenty of game without travelling too far from Johannesburg or Pretoria, including four of the Big 5. The reserve comprises small dams and a wooded valley that is home to 30 mammal species including buffalo, zebra, antelope, roan, sable, hippo and gemsbok.

Lions are kept in a special 100 hectare enclosure in the middle of the reserve and you can see them being fed on Sundays between 10h00 and 11h00. The reserve is also the habitat for about 200 species of grassland birds. On guided game drives through the reserve look out for the rufous-naped lark, ant-eating chat and African pipit as well as the northern black korhaan.

There is also a large walk-through aviary built into an old quarry, which provides great sightings of a number of South Africa’s birds. Given that the reserve is home to dangerous wildlife, the aviary is the only area you can explore on foot.

The rest of the time you can make use of the good network of roads to view game from your car, go on horseback with an experienced guide, or take an organised game drive. Night game drives are also on offer and there is a visitors’ area near the entrance to the reserve where you can enjoy a braai or a picnic. As the reserve is so close to Pretoria and Johannesburg it can get busy on the weekends, so plan to get there early.

You can overnight in the reserve at the Ngonyama Lion Lodge, which consists of two-bed rondawels, six-bed family chalets and two- and four-bed luxury units. Ngonyama Caravan Park offers caravan facilities.
