MANYONI

Private Game Reserve

An extraordinary Zululand wildlife sanctuary

Manyoni Private Game Reserve is not only a haven for the iconic Big 5 but also a testament to successful conservation efforts. Its establishment in 2004, through the collaborative effort of 17 private properties, marked a significant milestone in the region’s commitment to wildlife preservation. The decision to remove fences was motivated by the desire to contribute to the WWF’s Black Rhino Range Expansion Project, emphasizing the reserve’s dedication to ecological sustainability.

Spanning an expansive 57,000 acres, the reserve showcases not just vast landscapes but a thriving ecosystem within the heart of Zululand. This area is renowned for its unparalleled richness in animal diversity, making it a prime destination for wildlife enthusiasts and conservation advocates alike. Manyoni Private Game Reserve stands as a living testament to the harmonious coexistence of man and nature, fostering a remarkable environment where conservation, adventure, and natural beauty converge.

Beyond the famed Big 5, Manyoni Private Game Reserve proudly hosts an abundance of plains game, showcasing the remarkable biodiversity that graces its expansive grounds. A noteworthy aspect of the reserve’s mission lies in its unwavering dedication to the reintroduction of endangered species, exemplifying a commitment to the broader ecological balance.

Noteworthy successes include the triumphant return of both cheetahs and pangolins to their natural habitat, underscoring the reserve’s prowess in conservation efforts. Despite facing challenges in the introduction of two packs of wild dogs, Manyoni Private Game Reserve remains resolute in its vision to provide a sanctuary for these endangered creatures as part of the country’s metapopulation strategy. The reserve eagerly anticipates the forthcoming success of its wild dog pack reintroduction, reinforcing its standing as a bastion of wildlife conservation and restoration.
