Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve – Development

The initiatives started off in 1995 when the Gauteng Provincial Government and the efforts of enthusiastic more than 170 landowners came together.

Development of Dinokeng Big 5 Reserve commenced in 2008 and started with a 200km perimeter game fence for the Reserve paid for by Goverment.

Landowners began to dismantle fences around individual properties allowing game to “rome” freely between properties.

Dinokeng Big 5 Reserve started releasing Animals such as White Rhino followed by Lions and Elephants by 2011.

Opening officially 22 September 2011 after the introduction of four of the Big 5 had been accomplished.

Buffalo were introduced in late 2012
As resend as 2018 a herd of Black Rhino and Brown Hihenna were released into the reserve making it a genuine Big 5 Reserve
The concept that eco-tourism could become the source for upliftment of rural communities through sustainable employment.

Situated within the boundaries of a large metropolis the Dinokeng Game Reserve has the potential to become a model for future conservation where people and wild animals live in harmony.

Over the time it has been proven itself as an example for successful transformation with so far more than 800 permanent jobs created for people living in the adjoining communities.

An experience of a lifetime in this intimate camp that is peaceful, quiet and has wide-open skies that will surely make you return again and again.

Unwind; come live in the African Bush for a while. Make Memories; Enjoy This Moment!
