Wild Rivers

Wild Rivers Nature Reserve (2005)

Kruger Park Region, Limpopo Province, South Africa

Just 10km north of Hoedspruit you will find the jewel in the crown of our wildlife estates. The beautiful and totally secure Wild Rivers Nature Reserve is positioned on the Main Road north of Hoedspruit. Situated on the confluence of the Blyde and Olifants Rivers, Wild Rivers Nature Reserve consists of 31 exclusive residential sites positioned to maximise the spectacular views and over 7km of perennial river frontage. The reserve nestles amongst ancient indigenous trees such as the huge Fig, Leadwood and Essenhout trees, adding to the tranquillity and beauty of this special estate.

Wild Rivers is also the site of a 16-bed commercial lodge situated near a picturesque hippo pool. This unique 2 500 hectare estate forms part of the 12 000 hectare Blyde-Olifants Conservancy. Teeming with game, Wild Rivers is also alive with birds and is home to the rare Pel's Fishing Owl. It is also a protective breeding site for Herons. The well known ornithologist, Dr Warrick Tarburton, described Wild Rivers as "The best birding experience in the entire Lowveld".
