This is life as it is supposed to be…

Situated in the Greater Kruger Park Region, this scenic and pristine slice of exclusive African wilderness provides sanctuary to property owners that seek an authentic and secluded lifestyle experience in nature. Thirty two one-hectare stands are situated along 6 kilometer of river front with lush riparian forest that provides for a rich array of fauna and flora. Each of the 32 stands on Wild Rivers has unique river frontage views and building sites that are carefully located to ensure maximum privacy with generous distance from each other. The vast 2,600-hectare reserve bordered by both the Blyde and Olifants Rivers boasts a diverse landscape with rocky outcrops and savanna where plains game roam freely. Although elusive leopard wander in the shade of ancient trees and river banks are frequented by hippo and crocodiles, there are no “big five” animals on the Reserve, allowing residents to explore on foot. A network of gravel roads adds to the ambience of bush living where a trip to town becomes a safari.

Wild Rivers Private Nature Reserve is accessed from the R40 (Phalaborwa) road and an ideal gateway to a number of tourist destinations. The Reserve has magnificent views of the Northern Drakensberg that forms the Blyde River Canyon – the third largest canyon in the world. Surrounded by a choice of private game reserves as well as easy drives to two entrance gates of the internationally renowned Kruger National Park, Wild Rivers provides an ideal base for exploring the Lowveld. A mere ten kilometers from the Wild Rivers entrance gate, the vibrant little town of Hoedspruit offers a variety of shops, schools, restaurants, services and the Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport.
