Drive through the bush with your guests in your own game drive vehicle viewing wild animals and birds up close with no-one urging you to move on. Spend time identifying the myriad of trees and grasses while walking on your own private trails in Mokaikai.

The management of The Greater Mabula Game Reserve is done on a pro-active basis with much rehabilitation of flora, fauna and birds being undertaken: ground hornbill, redbilled oxpecker, vulture restaurant, serval cats, free roaming lion, elephant and sickle bush clearing.
More than 50 species of wild animals, 300 species of birds and more than 50 species of trees may be found on the reserve. Broadly speaking the reserve is divided into: open veld, tree savannah, mountain veld, open savannah, wet grasslands, mountainous rock and old fields.
Mokaikai is located in a MALARIA FREE area in the heart of the Northern Bushveld Region - at the southern foothills of the Blue Waterberg Mountains - about 45 km west of the bushveld town of Warmbaths. The rainfall season is between October and April, with the highest rainfall being measured in December and January.
The Greater Mabula Game Reserve - of which Mokaikai makes up nearly 25% - is a mature, professionally managed wilderness area of more than 18 000 hectares.
The abundant and varied game, birds, trees and grasses on the reserve make it one of the most sought after anywhere in the region. Limiting the reserve roads to recognised game drive vehicles, has further enhanced the wilderness experience and lessened the human impact on nature.
