Mpumalanga lived up to its name as the place of the rising sun during my memorable safari adventure at Komati Gorge Game Reserve.
Komati Gorge is located between Machadodorp and Carolina
I had decided to stay in one of their River Lodge Suites, which are surrounded by breath-taking mountain views. There are seven different suites to choose from, each offering spectacular and unique views of the surrounding landscape.
They offer a variety of activities – of which one is the safari tours that start either at 8:00 am or at 4:00pm.
The safari van can take about nine people at a time, and the tour costs R180 per person.
The safari lasts one-and-half hours and allows one to explore this 25 000 hectare wilderness and its beautiful sights, animals, birdlife, flora and magnificent waterfalls on the Komati River.
A safari tour at Komati Gorge offers a chance to see kudu’s, zebras, eland, blesbuck, red hartebeest, blue wildebeest, impala, warthog as well as carnivores like jackals, caracal and bush cat and leopards in their natural habitat.
The afternoon safari is also accompanied by sundowner snacks that include a platter of biltong, nuts, cheese and a drink of your choice.
Besides game drives, the many other activities Komati Gorge offers is 4×4 drives, canoeing, rock climbing, fishing, hiking, horse riding, rafting, mountain biking, paintball, a rejuvenating spa, archery, and the popular Jungle Bush Gym.
