D'Nyala Resort, Introduction

Resort type: Self-catering
D'Nyala Nature Reserve (Lephalale)

Imagine waking up to the unprecedented sounds of an orchestra of wilderness, with a rich variety of animals, tall trees and woodland habitats that form umbrellas stretching further than your eyes can see. Imagine waking up in the bushveld within reach of town.

Situated 10 km from the town of Lephalale en route to Botswana, this distinctively striking and tranquil resort gets its name from the massive Nyala tree that is characteristic of the area, and is also the southernmost habitat of the famous baobab tree. The game reserve is home to the nyala antelope, as well as 60 other mammal species including white rhino, giraffe, waterbuck, zebra, tsessebe, eland and others.

Animals at D'Nyala freely roam around the area including where the chalets are situated, making game viewing a door step away. It also hosts a handful of small cats, the brown hyena, black-backed jackal and the leopard. Several bird species, to the tune of 263 have been identified here including the waterfowl attracted to the area by the plains which also offer excellent game viewing opportunities.

In the centre of it all, D'Nyala has a spectacular VIP mansion, and a conference centre that is of historical significance. It was here that the peace talks between Noble Peace Prize winner FW de Klerk and Cyril Ramaphosa were held before the democratic transformation in South Africa.

It also includes a variety of predators such as leopard, brown hyena jackal and smaller cats. Some impressive Nyala Berry and Baobab trees can be encountered here.

Two game viewing hides overlooking the flat savannah plains and riverbeds enhances game viewing expecially during the drier winter months.

Highlights: Game reserve with abundant mammal and birdlife, Hides overlooking the Tabotie River plains, Massive Nyala Berry and Baobab trees.
