You’ll never want to leave Plumari Private Reserve

Plumari Private Reserve

At the Plumari Private Reserve, you will not want to just stay a while; you will want to stay forever.

Nestled between two of Gauteng’s most scenic regions, Hartebeespoort and Magaliesberg, the reserve is a dream destination for nature and animal lovers.

Animal lovers can expect to see up to 20 species of larger game while on game drives, including the Big Five, as well as the different species of antelope and plains game. Some of the rarest animals can be seen and include: Sable antelope, King Buffalo, Nyala, Black Impala and a Golden Wildebeest.


The reserve also has an abundance of birdlife and is crossed by the Hekpoort River, which is where Hippos can be spotted.

For your accommodation, you have the option of staying at any of the two sister properties, Askari Lodge and Warthogs Bush Camp, which are basically located 2km from one another.

Both properties are highly recommended and offer a unique service experience.

The reserve offers plenty of fun-filled activities for families, these include: two daily game drives (two hours), 4×4 trails, hiking and birding, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, Plumari Museum visits and much more! As if all of this isn’t enough, they also offer elephant experiences – where you can get up close and personal with two of the resident elephants, Damara and Nzewe.

Daniela McCormick, Director at Plumari Private Reserve, says; “Our beautiful Reserve offers 
a Big 5 experience, spa-treatments, conferencing, dining and 4-Star accommodation on a reserve exceeding 5 000 hectares. The best part – we’re only one hour away from Johannesburg and Pretoria!”

So what are you waiting for? Go and discover this hidden gem and trust me you won’t just want to stay a while.
