is located in the Kruger
area to the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated to the far west of the greater Kruger area, immediately south of the town of Hoedspruit, this relatively small fenced reserve comprises approximately 130 square kilometres of gently undulating Lowveld acacia scrub, set against the distant backdrop of the Mpumulanga Drakensberg escarpment and centred on the seasonal Klaserie River.
It contains a full range of animals and wildlife viewing is good year round, since being a fenced reserve, the animals are not free to migrate.
There may only be five lodges on the reserve, but between them they can handle up to 250 guests, supported by around 40 safari vehicles, which can make the place feel quite busy.Camp Jabulani
