Accommodation near Buffelspruit Nature Reserve

Tourists who take the time to visit the park will come across striking scenery with numerous herds of antelope grazing in open grasslands.

Despite its small size, with the park covering an area of 622-hectares, Buffelspruit Nature Reserve is a popular tourist attraction in the small town of Aliwal North. Game viewers will have the opportunity to spot plenty of medium-sized mammals, including blesbok, black wildebeest, zebra, and springbok.

While the reserve’s primary focus is to uplift the local economy through tourism, various breeding programmes have been put in place to increase the antelope population in the area. These initiatives have been largely successful as many varieties of buck can be viewed in the park.

While in Aliwal North, holidaymakers should take a visit to the hot mineral springs; a natural feature that has helped with the development of the town. Not only is a dip in the 34-degree pools an enjoyable experience (especially in the chillier, winter months), but the waters are said to have curative qualities for sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis.

Whie in the town, pay tribute to those who died during the Anglo-Boer War at the Garden of Remembrance. The memorial site is a place of quiet reflection and honours the untimely deaths of women and children in concentration camps.

If you’re looking to further your game viewing experience, travel further afield to Tussen die Riviere. As the name might suggest, the park lies between two large rivers, the Caledon and the Orange. Due to the sheer size of the reserve which covers an area of 22 000-hectares, a multitude of wildlife can be found throughout the park, including the black and blue wildebeest, and if you’re lucky, white rhinos. During the summer, traverse the grounds on a nature trail, which will see you wading through muddy waters and spotting a colourful array of birdlife.
