ZuluWaters is home to the Cape Buffalo, the embodiment of the soul of Africa – independent and magnificent. This is a dangerous and highly intelligent beast, prey-turned-predator which will stalk its hunter through reed beds, execute a diabolical strategy to defeat any predator, or, as you may find, give you a run for your money as you canter past on a nimble Appaloosa – under the watchful eye, of course, of an experienced guide.
Over the years, viable populations of game have been reintroduced to the Reserve. From the dainty Oribi to the massive, majestic Eland, hundreds of antelope all enjoy a life of relative tranquillity on the grassy slopes or high plateaux of the reserve, with few natural predators – except, perhaps, for a black-backed jackal or a resident caracal lynx. The Eland is the iconic animal of the Drakensberg
Mountains, massive, stately in its movements and exaggerated in the contours of its form. ZuluWaters has embarked on an ambitious project to reintroduce these magnificent beasts onto their ancestral grasslands. Rarely sighted in their mountain habitat, ZuluWaters provides the visitor the opportunity to enjoy large herds of these elusive antelope at close quarters.
