The Residence:

This magnificent residence is probably one of the finest private homes in the Greater Kruger. The home comprises three separate buildings (private club house, guest cottage and residence) interconnected by raised walkways. All buildings offer views of the properties waterhole. The waterhole is frequented by lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and kudu amongst others

The Club style building offers a bar with lounge and indoor dining area, a large gym surrounded by an outdoor sun deck offering a swimming pool, gazebo and outdoor dining area. Doors on two sides of the building fold away to give a contemporary indoor outdoor feel.

The guest house offer you and your personal guests a small library, a main bedroom with attached bathroom, two further bedrooms with a second bathroom. The building has its own private deck with an outdoor shower.

The main residence comprises a large open plan lounge kitchen/dining area together with two large bedrooms with ensuite shower/bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own private sitting area. Internal roof lighting highlights the magnificent high thatched ceilings. All rooms open to the covered deck with a further outdoor sitting and dinning with views over the property.

Stairs flow down from the interconnecting walkways down to an outdoor brai area with fire pit together with a hot tub and a further outdoor shower. The residence is surrounded by lush irrigated gardens giving a tropical bush feel. The gardens and walkways offer outdoor garden and pathway lighting. A Kenyan style game fence provides protection, without restricting views, surrounds the residence.

The property has mobile phone and internet boosters. It is served by mains electricity and its own borehole.

The Reserve: Some 8 500 hectares in size, the reserve conserves a diversity of species, including at least 300 recorded bird species and more than 40 mammals, ranging from the mighty elephant to the woodland doormouse. With its rolling granite-gneiss hills and dolerite dykes, OWNR lies on the western side of the Lowveld. The escarpment that lies some 35 kilometres to the west, represents the northern extension of the Drakensberg mountains and the boundary with the Highveld, providing a magnificent backdrop for life in the reserve. While the Olifants is the only perennial river in the reserve, the area is dotted with dry river beds that flow after heavy rain.

Over the years, landowners started to cooperate, bringing down internal fences creating a game reserve. The process gradually gained momentum in surrounding areas and the Kruger Park boundary fence came down in 1992, opening up Timbavati, Klaserie and Umbabat so that the animals could roam free. After the upgrading of the western fencing, the fence separating Balule from Klaserie finally came down in 2004 and Balule Nature Reserve was formally divided into its current sub-sections to allow conservation activities to be separately managed within each of its traditional parts. Today, the Olifants West section of Balule has its own Warden and conservation team, including anti-poaching personnel and a scientific research base.

Two-thirds of OWNR properties are approximately 21 hectares in size, lying in a north-south strip and collectively known as Takazile. The majority of landowners have cooperated to create the Takazile game drive route of over kms in an area off 2500 hectares.
