A group of selfless individuals with a passion for nature conservation. Many of them being SANParks Honorary Rangers, have formed this group to support the Dinokeng Game Reserve Management (DGRMA) in their endeavours to make the Dinokeng Game Reserve (DGR) a world class reserve.
This enthusiastic group has established “The Den”, a fully equipped bushveld campsite and conservation training facility, within the DGR. The Den is the hub for their activities. The Dinokeng Game Reserve Voluntary Rangers Association (DVRA), now 50+ members, have members on duty on rotational basis. They spend mostly weekends and holiday time in the DGR conducting snare removal operations, invader species eradication, training courses, promoting conservation, and actively patrolling and supporting the DGRMA on the ground.
Apart from patrolling the Self Drive Route (and enjoying the time in the bush), the DVRs play a major role in the reserve’s community upliftment activities. Amongst many others, they have facilitated practical courses for learners from schools that are close to the DGR and conducted several community clean-up projects. They have also recently conducted half day catered educational tours for the community kids that actively participate in the community clean-up projects.
Their mission is to support the DGR in developing, managing, and promoting a sustainable Big Five Reserve in Gauteng, that represent their biodiversity and heritage assets through innovation and best
practice, for the just and equitable benefit of current and future generations.
Their vision is to be the best volunteer organization operating as an integral partner to the DGR in support of their annual goals. Their purpose is to give their best to conserve the natural heritage and to
educate surrounding communities in sharing the same goal.
