The experience at Zimanga Private Game Reserve is specifically aimed at passionate wildlife photographers and safari enthusiasts. It boasts numerous photographic hides, where photographers are able to capture various different species up close without any disturbance to the wildlife.
The highlight is most often the overnight stay in the Umgodi hide. However,it is most certainly not only the photo hides that offer great photographs – game drives in an open safari vehicle provide a true African safari experience and many great photographic opportunities are on offer on these drives.
A wide variety of wildlife can be found on Zimanga – 80 mammal species (including the Big Five and the favourites such as giraffe, cheetah, waterbuck, kudu, nyala and hippo) as well as 400 bird species. It’s not only the variety that makes Zimanga a special place, it is also the exclusivity of it. Only a handful of vehicle operate on this 7000 hectare reserve, allowing for unhurried wildlife viewing that is not restricted by gate times.
