Situated in the Majestic Malaria Free Waterberg Mountains, Nsele Private Reserve offers the visitor a truly unique bush experience. The reserve offers wonderful landscapes, abdundant wildlife and the opportunity to experience our LEOPARD and CHEETAHhibituation programs. The reserve was never developed for commercial use but rather a secret conservation location. Now due to popular demand, we have decided to open the LEOPARD and CHEETAH program to the public on selected dates during each month. What is "Habituation? Please click on the "Haituation" button below to find out more. In a nutshell it is the process of getting these amazing Cats to not fear the Game Viewing vehicles. This involves tracking them through the bush with telemetry equipment and spending time with them slowly earning their trust. Usually this process is not open to the public, but in an effort to create awareness and safegaurd the future of these wonderful Cats, we have decided to allow visitors to join us for this unique experience. Generally big cats such as these that grew up in traditional farming areas have a natural fear of vehicles due to many years of of persecution. Our job is to slowly get them to trust that the vehicles mean them no harm. See more by clicking "habituation" button below.

Guests can enjoy all the benefits of a "Normal" game drive, but after sundowners at the Hippo`s the awesome experience of tracking and finding one of these illusive cats begins. At certain times these cats get darted with a tranquilizer so that they can be treated for ticks and radio collar maintenance. Guests staying at the Reserve during these periods will be allowed to travel with and enjoy this unique experience. See pictures of this by clicking the "Habituation" button below.

Nsele Reserve is only 3 hrs from Johannesburg and is 25km from the town of Vaalwater in the Limpopo Province. Please see "Map" below for more information. Currently there is only limited accomodation available as the intention was never to be commercial. This also ensures that the the groups on the game viewer remain small whilst tracking the big cats. We have a unique facility for couples that will ensure a lasting memory of your time spent here.
