Let us arrange one of our specialist tours to South Africa’s oldest game reserve established in 1895 to protect the white rhino, which were on the brink of extinction. The reserve is steeped in rich cultural and conservation history, with Zulu battles being fought here, as well as this having been King Shaka’s private hunting grounds. It is home to the “Big Five” as well as having cheetah, wild dog, hyena and other general game species.
