Zuka Private Game Reserve is the cornerstone property of a pioneering land assembly founded in 2001. Today, our story brings us to 23 years of our progressive rewilding project that has thus far expanded to 10,300 hectares of environmentally restored and protected northern Zululand.

Zuka Private Game Reserve supports stunning biodiversity; myriad species of bird, mammal, reptile and insect within a variety of ecosystems in this thriving wilderness. Home to prides of lion, herds of elephant and buffalo, the mythical leopard, the protected black rhino, white rhino and cheetah, Zuka Private Game Reserve stands as a beacon of light as to what is possible on our planet.

As one of the three founding members of the 30,000 hectare Munywana Conservancy, sharing a boundary with the 328,000 hectare Isimangaliso Wetland Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the impact of Zuka Private Game Reserve as it expands green frontiers and extends land under restoration, from previous dereliction and deterioration, is tangible.

Communion with wildlife, pristine landscapes and marine habitats, our conservation practices in the conservancy, the Getty Asterism’s pioneering ecology progammes and sustainable community development through Africa Foundation are the palpable successes of our venture and we are thrilled to share these immersive experiences with our visiting guests.

Welcome to the family’s

Zuka House, Gladstones and The Cottage serve as rare, welcoming homes from home for every guest who voyages to be in this pristine wilderness intergrated with wildlife, humanity and the endeavours, and success stories of conservation today.
