Eastern Cape Game and Nature ReservesThe Bucklands Private Game Reserve
Bucklands Private Game Reserve is a Stewart Family conservation initiative which was launched in 2007 culminating from the families deep love of the African continent's splendid diversity and natural beauty found within its wildlife and nature reserves.
Through the Stewart Families ownership of Bucklands Private Game Reserve a part of this beautiful and diverse area in the Eastern Cape will be conserved and protected, its wide spectrum of vegetation, spectacular scenery and natural diversity intact for future generations.
