The Krugersdorp Game Reserve is a small park, but offering a wide variety of bird and wildlife, with 30 mammal and over 200 bird species recorded. Giraffe, zebra, antelope, roan, sable, hippo and gemsbok can all be viewed.
Lions are kept in a special 100ha enclosure in the middle of the reserve. Visitors can watch the lions being fed on Sunday mornings between 10h00 and 11h00.
Krugersdorp Game Reserve (1 500ha) is the ideal option for a safari when time is limited as it is close to Johannesburg and the safaris are such visitors get to see plenty of game.
Visitors can also enjoy horseback safaris or go game viewing by mountain bike (The reserve is patrolled by Armed Guards to ensure your safety whilst out on the trail). The reserve is primarily grassland, with shrub thickets, small forests and fynbos found in the valley and close to the small dams.
Additional activities include enjoying a balloon safari, or learning how to drive a 4x4. Braai and picnic facilities are available.
Twitchers can spend hours on the lookout for the more than 200 species that have been recorded in the reserve but walking is strictly prohibited, so youll need to bird-watch by horseback or from your car. There is also a walk-through aviary within the reserves bounds.
Visiting hours: 08:00am - 18:00pm
