Our reserve is situated in the Greater Dinokeng Area, a region in northern Gauteng that was earmarked for development through eco-tourism.
As part of the Gauteng Governments Blue IQ project, formal planning and controlled development of Dinokeng Game Reserve together with negotiations with landowners began in the early 2000’s.
Construction of a 200km perimeter game fence for the Reserve commenced in 2008 and landowners began to dismantle fences around individual properties allowing game to move freely between properties. Big 5 Animals such as White Rhino followed by Lions and Elephants were progressively introduced by 2011.
The Reserve was officially opened on 22 September 2011 after the introduction of four of the Big 5 had been accomplished. Buffalo were introduced in late 2012.
In 2018 a herd of Black Rhino were released into the reserve making it a genuine Big 5 Reserve.
