About Pakamisa Game Reserve

The Pakamisa Game Reserve comprises a pristine malaria free wilderness area of some 2500 hectares in Pongola, a four hour drive from Durban. Access to the reserve is restricted, enabling guests at Pakamisa to enjoy the exclusive experience of natural African bushveld with its unparalleled abundance of wildlife and exotic vegetation.

Did you know? Accompanied by an experienced game ranger, guests may traverse the entire reserve in an open safari vehicle.

Guests can expect to see leopard, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, red hartebeest, warthog, bushpig, kudu, nyala, impala, bushbuck, common reedbuck, mountain reedbuck, grey and red duiker, steenbuck, klipspringer, baboon as well as many smaller mammals, predators and reptiles.

The bird life, too, is prolific and varied. A unique feature of the Pakamisa Game Reserve are the elevated look-out points and hides - more than 50 of them - from which visitors may spot or take photographs of the more shy and wary denizens of the bush as they emerge from their secret hiding places.

Your guide will explain the often-fascinating life cycles of everything from insects, plants and trees to the behaviour patterns of the mammals and birds, giving you a chance to experience at first hand the magic of the African wild.

Since none of the larger and more dangerous mammals roam the Pakamisa Game Reserve and access is restricted, you can look out for your own little corner of paradise.

More than 200 species have been recorded in the Game Reserve with many more occasional visitors and seasonal migrants. From soaring eagles overhead to the vivid sunbirds flitting through the shrubs, the area offers birdwatchers constant excitement.
