Lush, waist-high green- grassed hillsides dotted with acacia trees and shrubs drape the landscape of the Zululand Rhino Reserve and it is hard to believe that this area was heavily grazed cattle ranches in the not so distant past.
In 2004, 17 visionary landowners dropped their internal fences to create the “Big Five” reserve that is home to 70 mammal species and a large diversity of birdlife. The reserve has obviously been well managed since that time given the quality of the veld and the healthy glistening herds of Impala, Burchelles Zebra, Nyala, Blue Wildebeest and Giraffe.
The Zululand Rhino Reserve is also part of the WWF Black Rhino Range Expansion Project and is also home to other endangered species. A number of luxury lodges are scattered throughout the reserve and knowledgeable guides lead morning and afternoon game drives as well as guided walks.
