ABOUT THE MABULA GAME RESERVE:
The different habitats on the greater Mabula Game Reserve provide perfect conditions for an astounding selection of large mammals including the Big Five, Brown Hyena, Jackal and Cheetah. It also holds a huge variety of Antelope from Red Hartbees to Eland, Gemsbok and Blesbok. Each visit is unique, and as the seasons change green thickets and grasslands give way to the bushveld greys and yellows of Autumn.
