Kololo Game Reserve
Kololo Game Reserve is located in the heart of the Waterberg biosphere in Limpopo, South Africa. Bordering the renowned Welgevonden Private Game Reserve, this is a fascinating destination with a rich cultural legacy, unique natural biodiversity and breathtaking scenery. Kololo offers "Big Five" safaris in the Welgevonden as well as guided game walks and drives on its own property, which is home to a variety of indigenous wildlife. Hiking, mountain biking and a range of other activities are also at hand.
Kololo offers a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets and its missionis to give guests a once in a lifetime African wildlife experience, whilst upholding the African way of life by empowering its local community and protecting wildlife. It has been recognised for its significant efforts to purchase goods and services in the local area, not only through a strategy to identify local food producers, but also by helping new local businesses get started and by continuously investigating new procurement opportunities in the immediate area.
Kololo is also strongly committed to capacity building and social development in the local community. Social development initiatives include support provided to a school bursary, an educational programme and an orphans’ assistance programme operated by the local Waterberg Welfare Society.
Kololo is managing its property in accordance with the principles of the Waterberg Biosphere and is an active participant in the Waterberg Conservancy, which encourages communication and collaboration among landowners towards sound environmental management of their properties.
In addition, the reserve runs a "Friends of Kololo Plant a Tree" programme. Through this initiative, guests are encouraged to buy an indigenous tree and for every plant a guest buys, Kololo plants an extra tree free. Kololo has also signed up with the national Working for Water initiative to eradicate alien trees and plants, while future plans for the game reserve include becoming environmentally self-sufficient by means of solar power, thereby reducing the demand on non-renewable resources.
