It has over 370 species of birds, of which 100 species are water fowl. During the peak flood season over 80 000 birds can be seen in the reserve. Guests can visit the Nylsvley Reserve on a self-drive basis, or we can arrange a half day excursion from the lodge.

Archeological Sites:
VIEW MOREZwahili Game Lodge is situated in an area with a rich history; rock paintings are still visible on the walls of caves in the area showing past inhabitance of Hunter Gatherer, Koi and Bantu paintings. Bead making sites, a rain controlling site and remains of a bantu city have been discovered.‘Witkop’ an archaeological site, going back in time to when the ‘bittereinders’, at the helm of Boer Generals, utilized this Koppie as a hideout from the British for almost two years during the Anglo Boer war ‘Witkop’ stands proud in bearing homage to a period in history not to be forgotten.

Panthera Leo Gene Preservation Program:
As far back as 2002, Zwahili made the decision to re-introduce as many of the original mammal and plant species as possible. One of these was the re-establishment of Lion. Here at Zwahili we have decided to do something, as the wrong thing to do, would be to do nothing. Join us in preserving and securing this specie for future generations and especially for our children’s children. Let us seek to recover the gene of the Transvaal Lion.
