New game reserve for KZN
Tuesday, 22 April 2014
Plans have been approved for the Mayibuye Community Game Reserve, which will be situated halfway between Durban and Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu Natal. 

Peter Kennedy, who started planning the reserve with late conservationist Lawrence Anthony eight years ago, told Tourism Update that the game reserve is expected to welcome its first guests within four to five years.

The reserve will cover 4 600 hectares of land, which was awarded to the Mayibuye community as part of a land claim, says Kennedy. He explains that the community has agreed to commit this land to conservation in return for education and opportunity. Kennedy adds that the reserve is likely to expand as surrounding communities have also expressed an interest in committing their land to conservation.

According to Kennedy, work has already begun to fence the area and this is expected to be completed in October. There are already small numbers of game in the area, left over from game farms that existed in the area previously. However, once the fence has been successfully completed, additional game will be introduced to the area. Initially, this will be plains game while big game, including elephant and predators will also be introduced at a later stage, with a view to establish Mayibuye as a Big Five reserve.

Accommodation facilities in the reserve will include three boutique lodges as well as luxury houses.

The project has been endorsed by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife as well as the Department of Environmental Affairs.
