My Kaya Safari's in collaboration with Siyafunda offers a unique backpacking experience. Come & join our team of field rangers on their walking patrols through the Greater Makalali Nature Reserve and assist them with monitoring of our threatened big game.
Come and join us for an amazing outdoor adventure!
It is a 3 day patrol with the specific goals of locating our large and endangered animals, elephant, rhino, buffalo and lions and recording their conditions, locations and reporting to our anti-poaching unit and the reserve management.
The days will be spent tracking these animals using traditional tracking techniques and with the use of telemetry radio trackers. It will require a relatively high level of fitness and stamina. You will experience life as a field ranger and the learn tracking and trailing skills.
The Greater Makalali Nature Reserve is 25000 Hectares with a perimeter of over 90km, it is vast area to patrol and protect. This experience aims to incorporate a wilderness trail with the needs to protect the animals.
Groups are no more than 8 people and led by two armed and experienced guides.
If you would like to spend an extra night before or after the trail you can do so at an additional R750pp/night at the amazing Job's Halt Lodge your home away from home.
You can also enjoy a Game Drive at an additional R250
On day one we will meet you at the Makalali Nature Reserves main gate. We will load your backpacks and drive to the designated drop-off point (Anywhere up to an hour of driving)
Over the course of the next 3 days we will spend our time walking through the bush and tracking and monitoring the big game within the reserve. The days will be managed depending the heat, water availability and where we will camp for the night.
At the end of the walk we will be collected and driven back to the main gate.
