Nkomazi Game Reserve
The Nkomazi Game Reserve, located thirty kilometers south of Barberton in Mpumalanga, offers a captivating landscape where the Komati River winds its way through the ancient Makhonjwa mountains. These rocks, shaped by countless years of weathering, provide a stunning backdrop for the diverse wildlife that calls this reserve home. Predators such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs utilize the rocks for shelter, hunting, and basking in the sun. This unique setting presents a rare opportunity to photograph these majestic creatures, reminiscent of encounters typically found in East Africa. In Nkomazi, highveld and lowveld species coexist, bringing together animals like Blesbok, Hartebeest, Springbok, Eland, Nyala, Kudu, Impala, Giraffe, and Blue Wildebeest. It is the combination of breathtaking scenery and a rich variety of wildlife in fascinating settings that makes Nkomazi Game Reserve truly special.
