ABOUT THE RESERVE
Our Private Game reserve which surrounds our family holiday resort is home to many species of plains game. Our game include the blue wildebeest, impala, Nyala, zebra, giraffe, ostrich, and waterbuck to name a few.
A visit to our Private Game Reserve is a must when you plan your wild coast adventures. Enjoy guided safaris on quad bikes which take you for slow tours through the game reserve to get up close to our game. Alternately book a giraffe experience and meet Abby our hand reared, now adult male giraffe. A giraffe interaction with Abby is a very popular way to meet a giraffe up close, our guides will take you on a drive in our game viewing vehicle to find where Abby maybe grazing, and you will have the opportunity to feed Abby and take some lovely photographs with him.
We have many Acacia trees, or commonly known as thorn trees, which create shade and fodder and make up the grassland landscape of the reserve. We have the Leopard Kloof ravine running through the reserve, and our Adventure Village operates the zip line tour over this Kloof. The private game reserve and the family resort are both a birdwatchers paradise, with many species of birds calling Areena Riverside Resort home.
