Wildlife Conservation on Horseback
Head out to Kwa Madwala, a private ‘Big 4’ (leopard, lion, elephant and rhino) 4000 hectare game reserve, situated just South of the Kruger National Park, home to a luxury safari lodge with renowned horse and elephant safari’s.
This is an area of outstanding natural beauty - from drinking in panoramic views of the nearby Drakensburg Escarpment at ‘God’s Window’, to enjoying a sundowner on Fort Rocks - you’ll be surrounded by landscapes to take your breath away.
Our base, bush house, is in the heart of the reserve, surrounded on all sides by wildlife and offers a completely immersive safari setting. (In fact it has a little plunge pool to help wash away the dust!). From here you’ll be treated to encounters with game almost every day.
You'll divide your time between helping with their horse safari's, wildlfe, environment conservation with local community projects.
Quick break down:
Mornings: In the saddle
Daily horse safari's - helping rangers search for injured game and reserve management issues.

Help in the nearby children’s orphanage at Thembalethu School, a centre for victims of AIDS. This is an amazing place where you can teach and play with the kids. In addition we have painted murals, carried out maintenance and built a stage (which they love).
4 day trip to the famous beaches of Mozambique.
If you stay for 6 weeks part of the itinerary and cost is four days over to the deserted beaches of Mozambique to experience an entirely new country and a different side to African culture, influenced heavily by the Portuguese. Calm seas, clear skies, beautiful lagoons and white sands are just a four-hour drive away from the bush of Kwa. The perfect spot to indulge in seafood and tackle some watersports.
