South African Private Reserves

The private game reserves of South Africa offer a multitude of distinct safari experiences, from family-friendly to romantically luxurious.

Private Game Reserves

Private game reserves are scattered across various regions of South Africa. These reserves offer international tourists exceptional game viewing opportunities in areas which are largely untouched by time and civilization. The lodges which are found in the private game reserves of South Africa offer accommodation of varying standards, but all would normally provide a degree of comfort and luxury which is superior to that found in the national parks of the country.

All of the private game reserves suggested by African Sky Safaris & Tours are home to the Big Five. The elephant, rhino, buffalo, leopard and lion are the most illustrious of all of Africa's mammals. A close encounter with one of these magnificent animals is often hair-raising, but always memorable. The experienced rangers and trackers that conduct the game drives are there to ensure that clients are safe and well-informed at all times.
