Private Game Reserves in South
Private Game Reserves or Safari Parks
are aimed at those who want their safaris in South Africa to provide high standards of luxury and big game viewing. Most private reserves
feature luxury 4 or 5 star safari lodges, many of which are
decorated in modern, ethnic African, or Colonial styles and situated on tracts of land on which a variety of wild animals roam
These private reserves and safari lodges are situated countrywide. Some
take the form of 'concessions' where land within a National Park is bought or leased, and developed for conservation and safari
tourism. A typical example is the Kruger Park where tracts of land are operated as private game reserves: Kruger

Some popular private game reserves are Hluhluwe Imfolozi in Kwazulu Natal, the
oldest game reserve in South Africa - Sabie Sands at Kruger Park, which is known
worldwide and Shamwari in the Eastern Cape.
The luxury safari lodges are renowned for their hospitality and attention to detail. The Mala Mala Lodge at Sabie Sands (above) is known as one of the most prestigious safari lodges in the world.
Your safaris on these private reserves are made extra special by trained knowledgeable rangers who accompany you on tailored safaris in open top vehicles, and guided bush walks, which often
turn out to be the most memorable part of your private safari experience.
