Di­no­keng Na­ture Re­serve

Tshwane Business Travel Guide - - News -

As the only Big 5 Game Re­serve in Gaut­eng and ar­guably the world’s first free roam­ing Big 5 Re­serve, its lo­ca­tion and scenery places it among one of the coun­try’s most sought-af­ter and in­cred­i­ble at­trac­tions. On the pe­riph­ery of ur­ban­i­sa­tion, ease of ac­cess and con­nec­tion to the Tsh­wane re­gion is com­pounded by the sense of nat­u­ral peace en­joyed within the Re­serve it­self; its lodges serv­ing as more con­certed es­capes from city life be­fore you even get to the main at­trac­tion.

That main at­trac­tion be­ing, of course, the Big 5: the African lion, the African ele­phant, the African leop­ard, the rhi­noc­eros, and the Cape buf­falo (the lat­ter fi­nally in­tro­duced to Di­no­keng

in 2012, 12 years af­ter the Re­serve’s in­cep­tion).

In essence, Di­no­keng Na­ture Re­serve has mir­rored the City of Tswhane’s de­vel­op­ment in re­cent years; be­ing brought to the fore at the same time be­fore be­com­ing a fo­cal point of the wider re­gion it oc­cu­pies. Di­no­keng is as much the pulling fac­tor of Tswhane, as Tswhane is of Gaut­eng, and even South Africa as whole.
