Our Story centers around conservation, as a project started through strategic initiatives of Gauteng Provincial Government and the efforts of enthusiastic more than 170 landowners. Together they developed the concept that eco-tourism could become the source for the upliftment of rural communities through sustainable employment.
Situated within the boundaries of a large metropolis the Dinokeng Game Reserve has the potential to become a model for future conservation where people and wild animals live in harmony. And it is on the way to prove itself as an example for successful transformation with so far more than 800 permanent jobs created for people living in the adjoining communities.
The name of the Dinokeng Game Reserve (DGR) is derived from the languages of the baTswana and baPedi people who traditionally inhabited the area. Meaning “a place of rivers”, Dinokeng lies in the catchment area of two rivers that flow into the Olifants and Limpopo rivers and on to the Indian Ocean.
The DGR is situated on the northeastern quadrant of the Gauteng Province of South Africa between latitudes 25°40’00”S and 25°10’00”S and longitudes 28°15’00”E and 28°40’00”E comprising currently 18 500 ha.
The DGR area experiences summer rainfall patterns in the form of thunderstorms which can be variable and erratic. Rainfall varies from 350mm to 750mm per season. Temperatures vary between 0° and 40° with a long term daily average of 21°.
The Dinokeng Game Reserve is Malaria-free.
