Karongwe Private Game Reserve

The Karongwe Private Game Reserve comprises 8 500ha of African bushveld created by private landowners. In 1998 one decided to drop fences to be able to restore the land, which has been agricultural land, back to those conditions which are believed to constitute its natural state, maintaining the balance of species and flora and fauna. The Karongwe Association was founded in 2001 and the members are also the directors of Karongwe Game who owns and protects the animal species. Currently there are over 40 mammal species in the Reserve, including the Big Five Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo. The Reserve maintains a clean buffalo project.

The association wants to ensure the preservation of fauna, flora and animal species for the future generations. Conservation projects try constantly to achieve this goal. Community projects try to involve the natives in nature projects to help understand how important the preservation of nature is. Research projects working with overseas volunteers try to bring the importance of nature conservation into the international markets to let the world know how precious the African wildlife and nature is.
