A CONSERVATION SUCCESS STORY
The 2 cattle farms forming Molapo were bought in 1997 and 1998, with the process of returning them to their natural state commencing in 1999, nearly 20 years ago.
Situated on the North-Eastern boundary of the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, one of 400 UNESCO-registered Biosphere reserves world-wide, Molapo is a 1750 hectare private wildlife sanctuary for scarce antelope like Nyala, Mountain Reedbuck, Klipspringer and Sable Antelope; other rarely-seen species like Aardvark and Pangolin; and smaller predators like Genet, Honey Badger, Serval and Civet. These species are very rarely seen where you have larger predators like Lion, Leopard and Hyena. Other large animals include Southern Giraffe, Greater Kudu, Cape Eland, Blue Wildebeest, Burchell’s Zebra, Warthog, Common Waterbuck, Limpopo Bushbuck, Common Duiker and Southern Impala.
The Waterberg is a mountain range in the northern part of the Limpopo Province of South Africa, situated directly south of the Botswana border. It’s the 3rd oldest mountain range in the world (formed 2.7 billion years ago).
With its alternating porous and impermeable rock layers, it feeds the ephemeral rivers flowing through the arid, low-lying Limpopo valley to its north. Enjoying a sub-tropical climate, the region is elevated enough to be completely malariafree, enabling overseas visitors to experience the African bush without the added discomfort of having to take malaria prophylactics.
Molapo is suited for families, friends, and couples.
