From jungle gyms to jungle cats, the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve in the Cradle of Humankind is the place to be this summer. Rainclouds are rolling in, green grass is growing, and antelope babies will be arriving, making this the perfect spot to take in the beauty of the nature on our doorstep.
Begin your journey with a drive through our entrance gate into 1600 hectares of beautiful highveld scenery. Keep the kids busy looking out for animals like zebras, wildebeest, warthogs and buffalo. Budding young naturalists will be excited to spot rare species like roan antelope and their handsome cousins the sable. Keep a look out for famous rhinos as you head to our spacious predator camps where you’ll experience the thrill of lions, wild dogs and cheetah devouring their lunch.
Restaurant, Play Area, Reptiles, and more…
If all of this adventure has your family building up an appetite, it might be time to head to the Boma Restaurant. Let the kids go wild at our Children’s Play Park while you sit back and relax. Then explore our wildlife centre where you’ll get to see amazing animals found nowhere else in Africa, such as our very rare clouded leopards, Claudia, Sky and Storm. Marvel at our yellow anacondas and black mambas at the reptile park and take in a reptile show with our expert snake handler.
Day Trips, Party Venues, and Corporate Functions
