Abundant Wildlife & Birdlife
Within Dinokeng Game Reserve (DGR) the African wildlife includes lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard as well as many other species such as jackal, hyena, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, numerous different antelope, and many more. The variety and quantity of wildlife in the DGR is extensive and sightings often rival more remote parks.
The Dinokeng area is a bird-lovers paradise. An enormous number of bird species can be viewed, with the area holding the world record for most bird species recorded in a 24-hour period.
We take you on our game drives early in the morning or in the late afternoon as these are the best times for spotting wildlife. As always in the wonderful bush of game reserves near Pretoria, we can never guarantee what we will see. What we do enjoy are unforgettable African sunsets and sunrises. We provide your own personal sun-screen and insect repellent packs as needed, and our blankets keep you snug in our winter season or chilly mornings.
