Ka'Ingo Wildlife Facts

Ka'Ingo Private Game Reserve forms part of the malaria-free UNESCO-declared Waterberg Biosphere in Limpopo Province.

Ka'Ingo Private Game Reserve has set as one of its objectives to manage ethical and credible conservation of biodiversity of the Waterberg and its fauna and flora. Kaingo and its neighbour entered into a collaborative reserve agreement to create the 15 500 hectare reserve that is now home to 4 000 head of game including the big 5 (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and elephant). We believe that on the reserve only animals that are endemic to the area should be stocked, i.e. animals that occurred here historically and not from other parts of the country.

Over the years the owners and management have systematically introduced a number of species that are indigenous to the Waterberg; these are the Cape buffalo, brown lion, African elephant and cheetah. Lions were introduced in April 2005 and elephant in September and November of the same year. Cheetahs were introduced in December 2006 and have been free roaming from introduction. More than 20 elephant freely roam Kaingo.
