Pongolapoort Nature reserve

Pongola Gate Nature reserve offers a wide selection of activities that other parks do not offer. You can go on a wonderful boat safari where the animals greet you on the shore. The hippos are waiting for you, while you enjoy a delicious drink. No rushed safari but a wonderfully relaxing boat trip, in a small or private group. You can also go on a walking safari. You can opt for a regular walking safari or you can go searching for the rhino. With a guide you will search for tracks and signs that the rhinoceros has left behind. With the guide you try to find the location of the rhinoceros. A special moment to find the rhinoceros after tracking it.
It is a beautiful reserve where you get a different safari experience compared to other nature parks. You can also combine this with Hluhluwe-Imfolozi if you still want to see the Big Five. The lion is not present in this Pongolapoort Nature Reserve. This reserve is also perfect to use as a stopover to the Isimangaliso Wetland Park. Here you can enjoy the many hippos and crocodiles.
