The Ndlovumzi Nature Reserve is an exclusive residential area that consists of 35 full title properties, which are commonly known as camps 40 – 74. Most of the Ndlovumzi properties are situated on the banks of the beautiful Olifants River while the remaining ones all have a stunning view of the Drakensberg mountain range. A few properties even have both a river and mountain view.

The distinct advantage of Ndlovumzi Nature Reserve over other similar game reserve developments is the size of its properties, which provides its owners with a real sense of privacy and exclusivity.

Ndlovumzi has a myriad of game species on the reserve, excluding the Big Five. The Reserve is known for its many secondary roads, which is excellent for mountain biking, jogging and walking while enjoying the game in an unspoiled environment.
