Nambiti Big 5 Private Game Reserve

Nambiti Big 5 Private Game Reserve is situated in a malaria-free region in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. Offering diverse landscapes and abundant wildlife. The Nambiti Private Game Reserve was started in 1999 from what was originally a cattle and maize farming area. These farms were acquired and then the mammoth task of removing internal fencing and old buildings started. After all the unwanted man-made structures were removed, the task of removing all alien vegetation commenced – this is still on going. After some time the reserve was ready for the delicate task of reintroducing wildlife. Now after many years of productive management, the reserve has come full circle. The fauna and flora is flourishing. Most of the endemic species have returned giving a particularly diverse range of species not found in most protected areas in South Africa. The reserve certainly has plenty of water – so vital to the flourishing wildlife and maintaining this ecosystem at such a high level.

The Nambiti Private Game Reserve is home to the “Big Five” as well as about thirty other game species, including cheetah, hyena and hippo. The bushveld on this game reserve has incredible biodiversity including savannah, grassland, thornveld and tall acacia trees of the Tugela Basin biome. The birdlife is prolific with several rare bird species found in the ravine bush alongside the two 40 metre waterfalls of the Sundays River, which flows through the reserve. Nambiti is close to both the Anglo/Zulu as well as the Anglo/Boer battlefields. The Battle of Elandslaagte was fought partially on Nambiti.
