About Balule Game Reserve

The vast Balule Game Reserve is adjacent to the Kruger Park, home to the Big Five and world famous for its abundance of wildlife and birdlife.

Did you know? Winter is the best for game viewing - the driest time of the year is best to spot game as they’re more active and the bush is not as lush as it gets in summer.

In the Balule Game Reserve you will find the Big Five roaming freely between the Balule Game Reserve and Kruger National Park, including Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, and the Rhino.

The Balule Private Game Reserve was created 14 years ago when a few enterprising farm owners decided to drop the game fences between their farms. Balule continued expanding all the time as other landowners join the initiative to become incorporated into the Greater Kruger Park Management Area.

This has since grown into a 35000 ha Private Game and Nature Reserve with the perennial Olifants River flowing for approximately 20km through the centre of the reserve.

To fully appreciate the Balule Reserve and all it has to offer we recommend a stay of a few nights. SA-Venues.com proudly features a range of accommodation options within the reserve to suit all travel needs and budgets.

Our Balule Accommodation search facility is easy to use and you make your accommodation bookings directly with the venues. Lodges within the reserve include self-catering, B&B style and fully catered, luxury game lodges. Special offers are highlighted, and reviews will help you make informed choices.
