Serolo Safari Camp
is located along the shady floodplain of the Limpopo River, 600 m from the river itself, under the many massive Riverine trees including the magnificent Mashatu and tall Apple-leaf trees.
Our property borders the great Limpopo River at its Southern end and the Motloutse River to the East and encompasses riverine thickets, mopane veld, open plains and boulder-strewn sandstone ecosystems, complete with the game one would expect, including: Eland; Zebra; Wildebeest; Kudu; Impala and the smaller Bushbuck; Klipspringer; Duiker and Steenbok. In amongst these general game species lurk the predator population of Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog and both Spotted and Brown Hyaena.
The area is home to a diverse range of wildlife and boasts the world`s largest elephant population on privately owned land (over 1800 elephants) - offering some incredible sightings and providing fantastic photographic opportunities. Lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted and brown hyaenas are amongst the many carnivore species that occur within the reserve. Large herds of free-roaming eland, zebra and wildebeest are seen regularly and many other plains game are also found in the area.
The Serolo Safari Camp area is rich in archaeological heritage and beautiful San rock art sites have been discovered alongside numerous archaeological sites dating back from the Stone Age. Scattered artifacts are still being discovered over the concession.
Game viewing is excellent during the drier months of April to October. The southern night-skies appear to be studded with more stars than during the other seasons. The stark beauty of the landscape towards the end of the dry season is synonymous with the Tswana word `tuli` (meaning dust).
The `green season` occurs from November to March and this is when the African bush takes on a whole new look. Most animals produce their young while the migrant birds return to their sunny southern African summer homes. Once the rains return to the region, the bush lays a lush green floral carpet and the sky is spectacularly blue, all combining to make this a special season to visit us.
