BE SURPRISED BY DIVERSITY AND BEAUTY
Kaingo Game Reserve is a wilderness of outstanding scenic beauty, an African Eden, situated in the malaria-free Waterberg, 2.5 hours from Johannesburg. The reserve is a declared protected area with Critical Biodiversity 1 classification and a core area of the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, officially declared by UNESCO (in 2001). Considered important, we’re now striving to conserve this breath-taking landscape for future generations.
Sweeping across 16 400 hectares (41 000 acres) of bushveld savannah, river, valley and magic mountain landscapes, Kaingo represents a piece of Africa as it used to be with unique wildlife experiences, conservation and research activities and picturesque natural assets in abundance. With the mighty Mokolo river weaving through breath taking landscapes the reserve is home to more than 60 mammal and more than 300 bird species.
Kaingo offers incredible ecological biodiversity for a unique African wildlife and nature experience in a ‘Conservation First’ reserve, where all tourism income goes towards positive conservation efforts.
KAINGO GAME RESERVE
Proudly Conservationist. Uniquely Waterberg. Incomparably Kaingo
As a declared Nature Reserve with a primary objective of Natural Resource Conservation, the Reserve is run along pure, sustainable management and development principles, with an exceptionally low developmental and tourism footprint.
We have adopted a holistic approach, laying the groundwork for long-term ecological and economic viability, and creating a model of conservation supported by ecotourism that can be sustained indefinitely.
Research is a vital part of what we do. Kaingo has been involved in numerous research projects in collaboration with various academics from local and international universities, often leading to scientific publications.
