Big Five Reserve on outskirts of Johannesburg

South Africa's Gauteng Regional Tourism announced that THE DINOKENG GAME RESERVE now has BIG 5 roaming freely through its more than 18'000 hectares.
What this means is you can now potentially come face to face with Africa's most dangerous royal game - lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant within 60 minutes of clearing your luggage from OR Tambo or 30 minutes from leaving Pretoria. 
In addition Hayward's Grand Safari Company has its headquarters at the Bobbejaansberg Private Nature Reserve, (itself renowned as a walking with wildlife venue). This is a few kilometres from the Dinokeng Reserve's main gate.
Dinokeng has also introduced free roaming cheetah, sable antelope, vast herds of wildebeest and hartebeest, giraffe and zebra, hippo and crocs. Good rhino populations are also present. This bush veld region known as the Waterberg Biosphere has magnificent bushveld trees and landscapes and is malaria free.
Dinokeng also has one of South Africa's highest 24 hour bird species counts totalling over 350 and access into tribal heartlands of the Ndebele, Pedi, Tswana and Sotho.
Hayward's plays a decisive role in the future of Dinokeng, offering large VIP groups of up to 200 explorers access into this region, on exciting alternatives such as steam safaris with Rovos Rail to the historic diamond mining town of Cullinan from where they get to see the world's biggest diamond pit containing the worlds biggest diamonds and visit the old trading shops before heading to Hayward's a mere stone throw away.
