Nature Reserves in Polokwane

Birding  - Nature Reserves

Limpopo’s nature reserves offer excellent game-viewing opportunities. They introduce the wildlife in their natural habitat and provide an outdoors experience of how nature survives.

Balule Nature Reserve

Balule Nature Reserve

The Balule Private Nature Reserve was created ten years ago when a few enterprising farm owners decided to drop the game fences between their farms. This has since grown into a 35.000-ha private nature reserve with the perennial Olifants River flowing for approximately 20 km through the centre of the reserve.

Balule is undergoing continuous expansion as other landowners join the initiative to become incorporated into the Greater Kruger National Park Management Area. The 'Big Five' roam freely in the game reserve.
