Dear Babanango Family!

We have all been feeling the lockdown blues and the pressure of COVID-19 over the last few weeks, and because we know that you miss being in the bush as much as we do, we have decided to share some exciting news to help lift your spirits. As we enter May 2020 we are happy to announce that our plans on developing Babanango Game Reserve have flourished! Since initially starting the project in 2017 we have not only commenced with renovations on our three stunning lodges but also expanded on our overall conservation project and community development plans.

Taking all things into account, we would like to give you a taste of what Babanango Game Reserve will have to offer you and your loved ones upon completion. 

From your home to a safari getaway, Babanango Game Reserve will offer you a captivating bush experience and provide you with the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the abundance of nature. The planned reserve will comprise of 22 000-hectares of grasslands, thornveld and riverine thicket. Besides the lush fauna in the area, you can expect to encounter wildlife such as; buffalo, giraffe, hyena, zebra, several antelope, and the elusive aardvark and aardwolf. Rhino will be introduced to the reserve soon with the remainder of the Big-Five to come over the next two years. 
Teeming with birds, the reserve boasts over 250 identified birdlife species including nine breeding pairs of blue crane, black eagles, the lappet-faced and white-backed vultures, crowned eagles and the narina trogon - Perfect for those birding weekends away! 
Our lodges are getting a proper facelift and will be in tip-top 3 to 4 Star shape for your visit! In the meantime here’s a bit of info on what to expect:
