West of Johannesburg, on the outskirts of the suburban area, is the Krugersdorp Game Reserve, which, although relatively small, boasts enough wildlife to satisfy any touristís hankering for an African experience.

The game reserve is a little more than 40 minutes drive from central Johannesburg. To reach it drive west out of Krugersdorp towards Rustenburg on the R24. Watch for signposts indicating the Reserve on the right hand side.

A densely wooded valley runs through the reserve and includes a selection of bushveld birds. Approximately 200 species have been recorded. There is a good network of roads and walking is not permitted, so one has to bird from the car.

The Krugersdorp reserve has several different habitats including grassland, rocky outcrops and forest, which allow it to sustain a variety of game including zebra, giraffe and numerous antelope. There are also some lions in a separate enclosure. Day and night game drives are offered.
