The Waterberg (Safari) holidays

The Waterberg occupies 150,000 hectares just north of Johannesburg and has been described as South Africa’s best-kept secret. It is an area of soaring craggy mountains, sweeping grasslands and spectacular rock formations and although there is not the same near-guarantee of Big Five sightings as in the Kruger Area, there is a huge diversity of wildlife and landscapes. Cheetahs can be viewed from the safety of game vehicles, or on foot as part of a ranger led trail, in the cheetah reserve and the Rehabilitation Centre prepares injured, rescued or abandoned wild animals and birds to be re-introduced in their natural environment. A malaria-free destination, the Waterberg is ideal for families and travellers looking for a safari area with fewer visitors.
