Just south of Phalaborwa in the scenic South African province of Limpopo, is the magnificent Grietjie Private Nature Reserve. This is part of the greater Balule Nature Reserve, which is, in turn, part of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Part of Grietjie is situated on the perennial Olifants River. This area is also part of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Reserve, which has been accredited by UNESCO and is unique for its distinct biodiversity and undeniable beauty.

Grietjie is a Big Five reserve, which means that it is home to elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos, and rhinoceroses. But, in addition to these exciting animals, there are many more to spot in their natural habitat. Go on a safari or game drive and look out for jackal, waterbuck, crocodile, and a host of exciting bird species. In fact, there are more than 280 different bird species that have been recorded here, which include the rare Pel’s fishing owl.

The Grietjie Private Nature Reserve is an excellent choice for visitors wanting to experience an authentic African safari, or for wildlife photographers on the hunt for award-worthy pictures against unbeatable backdrops.

Grietjie Private Nature Reserve is one of the very few of its kind that offer full-title properties of impressive sizes. There are permanent residents that get to enjoy this splendour every day, as well as plenty of accommodation options for day or short-term visitors. This entire reserve is run with conservation and biodiversity at the forefront of the list of priorities for the management of Grietjie; assuring all visitors of the very best.

The shops and convenient facilities of Phalaborwa are a mere 30 kilometres away for the convenience of Grietjie’s guests. More than this, a host of fantastic attractions lie at the reserve’s doorstep. These include the Blyde River Canyon, Kruger National Park, Olifants River, and the magnificent Drakensberg Mountain Range.
