KaMsholo Bushveld Safaris
The private KaMsholo Bushveld Safaris south of Big Bend protects a picturesque tract of 4000ha of acacia savannah beneath a craggy Lubombos backdrop. These wild hills harbor some unusual habitats, with flora and fauna found nowhere else in the country. The reserve’s graded dirt roads are fine for small vehicles and with no dangerous game, visitors can explore trails on foot, guided or un-guided. Wildlife includes plentiful giraffe, plus zebra, blue wildebeest, greater kudu, nyala, impala, common reedbuck, common duiker and warthog and other game. Among the rich reptile fauna are some large pythons and there are crocodiles in the large dam to the south, where catch and release fishing is available. Birders will delight in the more than 300 species recorded around here. Raptors are especially impressive. There is a range of visitor facilities at the entrance to the reserve, including a good restaurant, playground, campsite and curio shop, and there is a choice of accommodation including traditional beehive huts.
