Lowveld Game Reserves
East of Gauteng, the province of Mpumalanga, formerly known as the Eastern Transvaal, begins. The landscape changes quickly as one travels further east. From the flat plateau, the bizarre mountain world of the Drakensberg of Mpumalanga rises, which separates as part of the escarpment the inland plateau (Highveld) from the low plains (Lowveld) in the east. In the expanse of the Lowveld lies the Kruger National Park, the world's largest game reserve, and a collection of private game reserves bordering Kruger on its western boundary.

The private game reserves of South Africa's Lowveld are the best destination in the country for anyone seeking high quality wildlife on an African safari. These private game reserves lie along the western border of the Kruger National Park and recently, much of the fencing that once separated these reserves from Kruger have come down, allowing the animals to roam freely between the reserves and Kruger.

Although the game in both the Kruger Park and the bordering reserves is essentially the same, there is a tremendous difference in the variety and quality of experience between visiting Kruger Park and visiting the adjacent reserves. In Kruger, which has over 500,000 visitors annually, only closed vehicles are permitted and off-road driving is forbidden. Night drives in Kruger may only be conducted by park rangers in large park vehicles. Facilities in Kruger are fair.

In the private reserves, day and night game drives are conducted in open vehicles and the accommodations, food and service are excellent. The biggest advantage of the open-air African safari vehicles is that you get a better view and also a much better feel for the bush than in a closed vehicle. At camps in the private reserves, the driver and tracker who accompany you on excursions into the bush are expert rangers and they are in contact with the other vehicles on game drive, greatly increasing your chances of finding the animals that guests most want to see.

Vehicles in the private reserves may also leave the roads to follow animals into the bush and provide much better opportunities to witness animal behavior and interactions. Night drives in the private reserves are also exceptionally good opportunities to spot game rarely seen during the day.
