Mohlabetsi Conservancy, Limpopo
The Mohlabetsi Conservancy lies on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, part of the greater Kruger Park area that borders on the Klaserie Game Reserve, just outside Hoedspruit. Staying in the conservancy is an unforgettable experience of magnificent bushveld that combines with incredible views of the Drakensberg Mountains. This is a place where time literally appears to stand still.
Two seasonal rivers wend their way through the area, one of them the namesake of the conservancy - Mohlabetsi or sweet waters. The advantage of the rivers is that they attract a wide diversity of wildlife and birdlife - white rhino, lion, buffalo, leopard, cheetah, eland and nyala - all make Mohlabetsi their home. Walks and game drives take visitors through riverine habitat, open grasslands and mixed woodland - a bushveld wonderland, with a treasure trove of animal sights and sounds.
River beds and water holes are lined with weeping boer-bean and other shade trees that evoke an element of the mystical to early morning and evening surveillance. It is indeed the sweet waters of the Mohlabetsi River that give the conservancy such a unique quality. Ones brush with nature is by no means confined by the parameters of the conservancy either. But a short trip outside of the Mohlabetsi conservancy, the Kapama Cheetah Project and nearby Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre, allow one to go behind the scenes to view mans attempt to rectify the damage he has already caused by his dominance over wildlife here.
