The Waterberg Biosphere Reserve is a magical part of South Africa which is easily accessible from Africa’s industrial powerhouse, Gauteng.   It is very old, and yet a very new place too.  With its unique history of sparse human settlement, it has been perfectly placed to reinvent itself, following the dawn of democracy in South Africa, as a stunningly beautiful and highly significant conservation area.

The Waterberg answers every nature lover’s dreams:  wide open spaces with a rare wilderness quality, the romance of true bushveld, close encounters with some of Africa’s most charismatic and unusual wildlife, and a riot of biodiversity.  Add to this some of the most pristine river systems in southern Africa, rich cultural and archaeological diversity, and a myriad of opportunities to explore on foot, horseback or open topped vehicle, and you have one of the most amazing eco-destinations in the world.   To top it all, the Waterberg has a mild climate and is malaria free.

For visitors either coming here for the first time or wishing to explore further, this review provides a synopsis of the history of the area from a cultural, geological and conservation perspective, and sets out its key environmental and tourism attributes.
