From its humble beginnings with only 2 White Rhino in 1985, this Gauteng Nature Reserve in South Africa has grown to feature over 600 head of game in a great setting. Rhino And Lion Nature Reserve is just a short drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Endangered species, such as the Wild Dog have been introduced into this South African nature reserve near Johannesburg, Gauteng. Cheetah, Hippo, Crocodile and more than 20 species of antelope can also be seen. From a vulture hide, visitors have the opportunity to view and photograph the rare Cape Vulture. Over 200 bird species can also be spotted.
A successful Wild Dog breeding programme has been underway and subsequently led to further programmes for Bengal Tigers, Siberian Tigers and the very rare White Lion.
