THE RESERVE: Hannah Game Reserve

Northern Drakensberg | Orighstad | Limpopo Province

LOCATION

Hannah Game Reserve is ideally located in the heart of the Norhern Drakensberg Escarpment close to the little town of Ohrighstad. Home to some of South Africa’s most striking landscapes, the Drakensberg Escarpment was, until a couple of centuries ago, untamed rainforest roamed by elephants, buffaloes and even lions. Today it’s a natural wonderland rich in geological history and ecological slendour. The escarpment marks the point where the highveld plateau plunges down over 1000m, before spilling out onto the eastern lowveld, forming a dramatic knot of soaring cliffs, canyons, sweeping hillsides and cool valleys.


MORE ABOUT THE RESERVE

Hannah Game Reserve is a reflection of the Africa that God created in its entire natural splendor. Here in the heart of the African bushveld our students experience a rare sense of freedom and renewed spiritual inspiration. The reserve lies amongst the gently rolling hills of the Northern Drakensberg Escarpment. This beautiful private game reserve embraces more than 8000 hectares of malaria free, unspoiled African bushveld.

Hannah Game Reserve is a captivating tapestry of African sounds, smells and colours, where the rising sun showers the valley with shades of pink, red and orange.

On the 8000 hectares, we sometimes see the elusive Leopard, buffalo are almost always seen, and a variety of general game, such as Tsesebe, Oryx, Mountain Reedbuck, Eland, Sable and Springbok. Recently a very successful Sable Breeding Project was started, and this has become very popular with our visitors.

Our birdlife is also prolific with +250 species on the reserve, so always keep a look out for your favourite.


On 28 February 1992, the Kinnear family from Nelspruit in Mpumulanga, comprising of Fred, his wife Hannetjie and daughter Selize, purchased the Farm Luncarty, the family's vision was to develop a reserve in the heart of the African bushveld with conservation as their main inspiration, where both humans and animals could co-habit.

Today Hannah Game Reserve is home to very successful Baffalo and Sabe Breeding Programmmes as well as what can be seen as one of the most expansive conservation and wildlife research facilities in Africa.
