Balule Private Nature Reserve Travel Guide

Map of Balule Private Reserve


This vast Nature Reserve is home to the Big Five and is renowned for its abundance of animals and birdlife. 
The Balule Private Nature Reserve was created when a few enterprising farm owners decided to drop the game fences between their farms. This has since grown into a 35000 hectare Private Nature Reserve with the perennial Olifants River flowing for approximately 20km through the centre of the reserve. 
Remarkably Balule Private Reserve is expanding all the time as other landowners join the initiative to become incorporated into the Greater Kruger National Park Management Area.
