More info about Dinokeng
Originally to be a safari park, the Dinokeng area was extended to form a regional tourist destination. This government initiative has been a glittering success and today the area consists of vast tracts of pristine land, dams, rivers, historic battlegrounds and Stone Age sites. Dinokeng is located in the Gauteng Province of South Africa, 48km outside of Pretoria and 108km from Johannesburg.
The name Dinokeng means “The place of rivers”, as the Pienaars and Boekenhoutspruit rivers run through the region, the Apies River lies to the west, and the Elands River in the east.
Dinokeng has a somewhat dry bushveld environment ideal for game viewing, and the area experiences the spectacular summer thunderstorms typical of Gauteng. Temperatures average 21° Celsius throughout the year.
The Dinokeng Game Reserve is the only reserve in Gauteng that hosts the Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo). Other mammals include cheetah, brown hyena, hippo, giraffe, zebra and a variety of buck species.

About Game Lodges
This is the ultimate experience for guests wanting to get close to nature without compromising on comfort. Guests can usually choose to stay half board, with breakfast, lunch and selected drinks covered, or full board, with all meals and selected drinks, at the game lodge of their choice. All guests will enjoy luxury amenities; with unique touches to decor and layout that enhance their stay in gorgeous natural surrounds. Wildlife and birdlife is abundant in the areas the lodges are located in, and guests will often have the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the animals, without leaving the lodge. For those in search of the more reclusive animals in the areas, often including the Big Five, game drives are offered. Getaway and experience the beauty of Africa’s bushlife, while staying in supreme luxury at one of our many Game Lodges.
