Proudly Conservationist. Uniquely Waterberg. Incomparably Kaingo.

Kaingo is a destination of outstanding scenic beauty, an African Eden. Situated in the Waterberg, 2.5 hours from Johannesburg, Kaingo Game Reserve is the malaria-free safari holiday you’ve been searching for. Accommodating family, friends or business associates, our facilities, coupled with our spectacular location and passion for the environment, make this an unforgettable destination. Sweeping across 22,000 acres (9,000 hectares) of bushveld savanna, river, valley and magic mountain landscapes, Kaingo represents a piece of Africa as it used to be with unique wildlife experiences, thrilling activities and picturesque natural assets in abundance. With the mighty Mokolo River weaving through breathtaking landscapes, Kaingo has distilled the finest natural wildlife safari offerings for the enjoyment of our guests.

The reserve is a slice of wilderness paradise far from the madding crowd, yet easily accessible; a place of renewal and reconnection with the natural world. The iconic and most dangerous wild animals of Africa – lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard – are at home on Kaingo, but so too are over 50 other mammal species and over 350 different types of birds. Game drives and bush walks at Kaingo offer guests incredible ecological biodiversity for unique African wildlife and nature experiences in a ‘Conservation First’ reserve, where all guest income goes towards positive conservation efforts.  Read More
