Private Game Reserves –

Pristine Wilderness, Superb Protection but Less Regulations

South Africa boasts countless top-class game reserves. However, in comparison to the larger national parks, the smaller, private reserves usually feature larger wildlife populations for the visitors to enjoy. Moreover, the lodges set in the private game reserves have more liberty when planning their activities. For example, night-time safaris are frequently offered, which are often forbidden in the state national parks. Nevertheless, nature protection enjoys a top priority at the private reserves. Only a healthy environment ensures sustainable tourism. And last but not least, the private reserves have added vast areas to the protected land mass in South Africa. Guests greatly benefit from the individualised service. This applies to the first-class safaris just as much as to the luxurious resorts and hotels, which promise a wonderful holiday in the private wilderness. Intosol offers a hand-picked selection of first-class private game reserves in South Africa, including several resorts that were ranked among the best safari hotels in the world by renowned international tourism magazines. Most of the private reserves are malaria-free (an exception are the reserves in the north of the Kwa Zulu Natal). Depending on your itinerary, preventive malaria-prophylaxis is not required.The private game reserves are spread all over South Africa. However, many reserves are conveniently located within a two to three hours drive of the major cities Johannesburg, Cap Town or Durban. Wildlife-sightings and safaris are outstanding. Several reserves have been featured worldwide in BBC and National Geographic documentaries. Ask our experienced team to help you choose the right reserve for you – we are looking forward to helping you!
