Balule Nature Reserve is a private game reserve and forms a part of the Greater Kruger National Park.
The lifting of all fences between Kruger National Park and the many private reserves that comprise it means that a more natural eco-system has developed and game are allowed to roam more freely as they would in the wild. It also means that guests at any one of these reserves will experience all that Kruger has to offer. Balule is one such reserve. It offers its visitors over 40,000 hectares to explore and, more importantly, a diverse population of wildlife to discover upon it. The private reserve is also home to a host of fine accommodations, each promising a more than comfortable stay.
