About Waterberg Biosphere Reserve

Almost the size of the Kruger National Park, the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere Reserve has it all.

Close encounters with amazing wildlife, vast open spaces, rich biodiversity and the romance of the bushveld contribute to an unforgettable African wilderness experience.

This magical part of South Africa offers discoveries as diverse as its visitors – fascinating people and places are all within easy reach.

Stretching from Marakele National Park in the south west to Wonderkop Nature Reserve in the north east of Limpopo, the reserve houses an immense treasure of archaeological, cultural, and biological diversity.

The small town of Vaalwater serves as the gateway to this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve characterized by undulating hills and endless views.

Explore it on foot, horseback or in your vehicle – you won’t forget it!
