This stunning area to the north of Johannesburg is malaria free and perfect for a self-drive holiday with excellent game viewing opportunities in Madikwe Game Reserve or one of the private game reserves in the Waterberg region.
The Waterberg Mountains rise out of the vast open plains of bushveld north of Johannesburg and is primarily a safari destination. It is a stunning area of natural beauty with a dramatic forested plateau dissected by ravines and waterfalls and panoramic views. There are a mixture of private reserves some with the big five and others just nature reserves with some lovely walking and horse riding.
The Madikwe Game Reserve is situated close to the Botswana border with great game viewing opportunities. Wild dog, black and white rhino, can be seen as well as sable, gemsbok, springbok and giraffe. The area also boasts over 300 species of bird. Enjoy the extensive game on foot, from a vehicle or on horseback to make the most of the viewing opportunities and with great lodges available for all budgets, this area is a hidden gem and well worth a visit.
