SANWILD WILDLIFE SANCTUARY/RESERVE
Private Game Reserve Accommodation
in Gravelotte, Valley of the Olifants,
Limpopo, South Africa
Situated in South Africa's Limpopo Province, approximately 60km's from the
town of Tzaneen is the SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary. SanWild's exclusive Savannah
Private Bush Camp has been named after a female leopard rescued in 2003 after
hunters trapped her illegally for a canned hunt.
The 6000 hectare SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary has introduced numerous rescued and
rehabilitated wild animals including impala, kudu, blue wildebeest, red
hartebeest, waterbuck, common and mountain reedbuck, grey duiker, nyala,
giraffe, zebras, steenbok, rhinos, hippos and elephants. Some very elusive and
rare creatures like pangolin and aardvark have also chosen of their own accord
to make this protected reserve their home. Wild leopard and cheetahs roam freely
and a pack of rescued African Wild Dogs will be introduced shortly. Many small
predators like serval, caracal and civets can also be seen in the reserve and
the Sanctuary’s large predator Cats’ Rescue centre is home to 19 lions rescued
from South Africa's sordid canned lion breeding and hunting industry.
The stylish Savannah Private Bush Camp consists of four luxury chalets with
en-suite bathrooms and thatched roofs. Each Luxury chalet sleeps 2 although more
beds can be added for parents who want to keep an eye on there little ones.
Satellite television is available in all the chalets. The central facility is
set in beautiful gardens with a rock pool where guests can escape the heat while
keeping a close eye on a wide variety of wild animals drinking from the
waterhole a mere 80 meters away.
The camp is completely fenced to keep out SanWild's large wild animals like elephants, rhinos and hippos. A resident chef
prepares scrumptious meals that are served in the dinning room cum lounge that
has a huge fireplace for those cold rainy days. A veranda under thatch leads off
to the dinning room and includes a small pub where guests can relax or socialize
during the day. Some evenings are spent in the open-air boma area where meals
can be prepared next to a campfire. A maximum of eight people are accommodated
in the Savannah Private Bush Camp at any given time. The camp is also available
to groups or for corporate bookings.
Guided eco-ranger walking trails are done very early every morning along with
morning and afternoon game drives. Night drives are done by special arrangement.
Optional day or over-night trips to other tourist destinations such as the world
famous Kruger National Park including the Elephant Museum, Mojadji Cycad
Reserve, Mac-Mac Falls, Blyde River Canyon, Eco-Caves, Bourke's Luck Potholes,
God's Window, the Pinnacle, Cherry gardens or local tea and coffee plantations can
be arranged. We do also, by prior arrangement, arrange helicopter flips to Blyde
Profits generated from the Savannah Private Bush Camp are applied on an equal
basis to animal emergency rescues, resource management and the running of the
wildlife rehabilitation centre.
