Wakkerstroom lies in the old province of Transvaal or as it is now known Mpumalanga in the north east of South Africa. The area is truly unique for an array of reasons and mainly associated to wildlife. It is firstly very different from the rest of our properties as it lies in mountain grassland savannah and part of the larger Drakensberg mountain range. It has more than 150 (one hundred and fifty) natural springs and 7 (seven) waterfalls. The average rainfall in this area is about 2000 (two thousand) mm per annum, which coined the saying in Wakkerstroom that "in summer Wakkerstroom, it rains every day and on Sundays twice"
The property is 14500 (fourteen thousand five hundred) hectares in extend and has thousands of valleys filled with natural bush and vegetation that include rare species of trees like the yellow wood. The property has 32 (thirty-two) hunt able species of animals, and with its 16 (sixteen) trout filled lakes provides a diversity of amenities for the outdoor person.
The property is also the origin of both the Tugela and the Pongola Rivers, which in return leads to one of South Africa's few wetland areas. Due to this unique environment you find the highest concentration of birdlife species diversity in South Africa as well and over 50 (fifty) species of dragon and damselflies.
Our unique setting has also allowed us to create an interesting hunting experience by constructing 6 (six) individual very well poisoned hunting cabins that are scattered over the entire property, which are all inter connected to create a mountain type hunting experience whilst hunting for illusive species like the nyala and bushbuck, but can evenly run into a big buffalo bull wading in one of the many springs on the property.
