Kwalata Game Ranch derives its name from the endangered and proud Sable Antelope.
Kwalata Game Ranch is also part of the Dinokeng Conservancy, an envisaged 200 000ha set aside for eco-tourism. In the northern corner of Gauteng, the rich diversity of natural habitats of the bushveld and grassland-terrain of Dinokeng provides a suitable setting and a natural home for a variety of wild animals, including the legendary African Big Five.
Covering an area of 1500 HA, only 45 km north of Pretoria, Kwalata is home to more than 14 species of game. Kudu, zebra, giraffe, blue wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, steenbok, ostrich and warthog are just some of the animals roaming the African savannah. Four kilometres of the Pienaarsriver sustains a colourful abundance of birdlife in this malaria free area. The protected Tamboti tree also enjoys prominence at Kwalata Game Ranch as Main Camp is built amongst a number of these beautiful trees.
Only an hour's drive from Johannesburg International Airport, this is where the African Bushveld comes alive!
From humble beginnings under starry skies, Kwalata has sprawled into a leading conference, teambuilding and function venue almost entirely by word of mouth.
It boasts a beautiful and quiet unique wedding chapel in the midst of a Tamboti garden, adjoining a boma and catering facilities for 250 guests.
Three conference centres allow companies a productive workshop in the bush. Guests can overnight in comfortable accommodation.
Whether it's a campfire in the bushveld, a herd of blue wildebeest trekking through the bush, crossing a river on an 80m high rope, Sangomas throwing the bones, gum boot dancing, walking trails through the African bush, a crimson breasted shrike announcing daybreak, braaied chickens in a Mozambican tavern dished up with pumping kwaito music, you are sure to have an unforgettable Kwalata experience.
