Babanango Game Reserve has been turning heads since it began the mammoth task of pulling together and conserving a 22,000ha expanse of breathtakingly beautiful African bushveld, investing into a development programme that's underpinned by responsible tourism and community beneficiation. Easily accessible from Durban (3 ½ hrs by road) or Johannesburg (6 hrs) and offering a choice of accommodation across two different luxury lodges including Babanango Valley Lodge, Zulu Rock Lodge and Matatane Camp, this is a very unique safari experience recommended to family and friends.

INFORMATION FOR BIRDERS
At Babanango game Reserve we have guides who are passionate about the birds of the area, and who are ready to welcome avid birders. Babanango Game Reserve recently hosted a second successful Bio Blitz - an intense biological survey carried out by a group of scientists, naturalists and volunteers to record all living species within a designated area over a continuous time period. The findings of this latest Bio Blitz revealed some good news for the reserve as the number of recorded bird species rose from 287 to 303, showing positive growth in the variety of birdlife found on Babanango.
