Stellenbosch is, after Cape Town, the second oldest European settlement in South Africa’s Western Cape Province. It lies on the banks of the Eerste River 50 km north east of Cape Town. The town is known as the City of Oaks or Eikestad in Afrikaans because of the large number of oak trees that the towns founder, Simon van der Stel, had planted along its streets.Read more
Balule Nature Reserve is home to the "The Big Five" and is world renown for its varied animal and bird life. Balule Nature Reserve is part of the Greater Kruger National Park, which is the name of the combined area of the state owned section of the park (the Kruger National Park) together with its neighbouring private reserves (which include Balule Nature Reserve), between which the fences have been removed to again allow the animals to move freely along their natural migratory pathways. The Olifants River is at the heart of the nature reserve, flowing for around 20 kilometers through the district.Read more

The Big Five is a historic term that comes from big game hunting. It groups together the five animals that were considered to require the most courage and skill to hunt: Elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard. The term has been readily adopted by today’s wildlife safaris, on which rifles have been swapped for a camera and animals are only “shot” through a telephoto lens. It is also widely used in the marketing of reserves, camps and lodges, where the “Big Five” can be found, and visitors have a reasonable chance of encountering them.Read more
Kruger National Park is the largest in South Africa and nearly 20,000 km2 in size. On top of this comes the large private reserves on the western side of the park. Kruger is also one of the oldest national parts in the world, with a history of more than 100 years to look back on. This means the animals have long lived peacefully here and are not shy. Like all parks and reserves in South Africa the Kruger is fenced, but the fences have been taken down along a stretch of circa 100 km where it shares a border with the majority of the private reserves, which together with a few private concessions in Kruger itself provide safaris of the very highest standard.Read more
