Wildlife Sightings

Matetsi Private Game Reserve, an unfenced 136,000-acre wilderness concession at the heart of the KAZA transfrontier conservation area, is home to vast array of wildlife from huge herds of elephant and buffalo to large prides of lion and solitary elusive leopards.

Monthly Sighting Reports

Each week our guiding team compile sightings reports that detail which animals and birds they have observed while out on safari with guests or on anti-poaching patrols on Matetsi Private Game Reserve. And each month, we do a summarised write up of these, featuring photos and anecdotal contributions from our team and our guests.

Over the years it’s been wonderful to see the return of wildlife to the area, evidenced in these reports. This marked increase in wildlife populations and species is living proof that our on-going conservation efforts are having a profoundly positive effect in the area.
