About Blouberg Nature Reserve

Blouberg is a 9300-hectare provincial government-owned nature reserve in the Limpopo Province. It offers guests the exciting opportunity to experience a rich diversity of plant and animal life in rustic accommodation along the mixed bushveld, woodland and riverine.

Accommodation on offer includes the Mashatu Camp which consists of four family cottages, the Tamboti Bush Camp with safari tents, Molope Campsites and the Modumele Wilderness Camp, a more rustic experience and not for the faint hearted.

Due to the presence of dangerous game, only guided hikes are permitted and self-drive game drives are possible, preferably using a vehicle with a high ground clearance. To access the southern region a 4x4 is required and vehicles may not be driven off existing roads. Travellers need to always be aware of their surroundings when disembarking from vehicles as a confrontation with a buffalo or a leopard is always a possibility.

Animals found on the reserve include Cape buffalo, giraffe, eland, sable, waterbuck, gemsbok, red hartebeest, zebra, kudu, bushbuck, impala, mountain reedbuck, klipspringer, steenbok, duiker, warthog and bushpig. Predators recorded are leopard, cheetah, caracal, brown and spotted hyena, and numerous small mammals like civet, red spotted genet and African wildcat.

The bird list stands at more than 230 species of which the flagship for the reserve is the Cape vulture. The breeding colony hosts more than 650 breeding pairs and forms a stronghold for this threatened species in southern Africa. Visitors can view these birds at close range, especially during winter months at the Vulture Restaurant when they come to bathe daily at the waterhole.

Conference Venues: There is a conference room and lapa provided at the Mashatu Camp. There is a braai area. A whiteboard is provided. Can accommodate up to 16 delegates.

The overall well maintained roads, hides and camp was most impressive. Very heart warming to see so many waterholes. Well marked roads were very helpful.The only little problem we encountered was the unmanned office to receive us and give us a map of the reserve.

Blouberg is fantastic if your expectations are correct. It is small, has easily sighted giraffe, buck and buffalo. The birds are great, the bushveld is pretty pristine. The sight of the hundreds of vultures circling above the colony is unique. The accommodation is old style but great. You really should have a 4 x 4. if you don't you must book game drives otherwise you will be camp=bound in a sedan.****************************************************Hi Michael, Thanks for your positive review and glad you enjoyed Blouberg. You are right of course, a 4 x 4 is needed to make the most of Blouberg...

Een van my top 5, sal beslis weer kom. Baie goeie ruim bos kampplekke, elkeen met n reuse bome of bome om die hitte af te keer. Was lekker warm, maar met stort naby een lekker naweek. Wees versigtig met die paaie, 2 keer in die sand tot stilstand gekom, maar kon gelukkig uit reverse met die kombi. Die pad na kampplekke geen probleem. Honderdpote, skerpioene en groot spinnekoppe jou gaste vir die braai, alles deel van jou kamp ervaring hier. Puik pad van Gauteng tot voor die hek. Baie goed. Establishments response: Hi Dirk, Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed Blouberg. We hope to...
