The Landscape of Nambiti Hills

Description goes here
The reserve's 8 093 hectares (20 000 acres) encompasses a wide range of biodiversity that includes savannah, thornveld, ravine bush, magnificent acacia trees and extensive grasslands. Abundant nutrient-rich vegetation resulting from soil with an extremely high sulphate content, perennial rivers and dams support one of the highest concentrations of game in South Africa. They also mean the reserve is an ideal breeding and animal relocation area which is why wild animals are frequently brought into the reserve.
The topography of the reserve varies from rolling plains to valleys and mountains, and includes an impressive river, the Sunday's River, that cascades down two dramatic 40-metre waterfalls.
Nambiti Private Game Reserve is one of the few private reserves in Africa where species have the space and habitat to live freely. The size of the reserve allows herbivores to roam in large herds, as they used to before the intrusion of man. In fact, Nambiti has the highest number of plains game out of all reserves in KwaZulu-Natal. Its vast open plains are also particularly conducive to a cheetah's lifestyle.
