Your Guide to the Drakensberg and Natal Midlands

Weenen Game Reserve

Weenen Game Reserve is administered by the KwaZulu Wildlife and covers an area of typical inland KwaZulu-Natal acacia grassland with occasional thickets. There are extensive game viewing facilities, guided walks and environmental education in the Weenen Game Reserve.


More than 230 species of birds have been recorded (there are two hides overlooking a dam) and the Weenen Game Park is an excellent example of how a severely degraded habitat can be successfully rehabilitated. There are three picnic sites.

White water rafting and fishing are popular in the rivers and for the hunter, there is a variety of both buck and birds. The area of the reserve covers grasslands, steep forested valleys and riverine vegetation. 

Buffalo, kudu, leopard, giraffe, hyaena, elephant, rhino, zebra, wildebeest and many others. There are also crocodiles, pythons and monitor lizards.
