The spectacular, private Makuleke Concession of the northern Kruger National Park is perhaps the best area for walking in the entire Park and is blessed not only with exceptional biodiversity but also spectacular scenery, seasonally high densities of many large mammal species, a feeling of wilderness and remoteness, and a sense of history.
Habitats include the life-giving arteries of the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers, both with well-developed floodplains and a series of vitally important seasonal pans. Between the two rivers lies a ridge of hills with a network of drainage lines and secret perennial springs to which the area's game is drawn. Rugged baobab dotted kopjes jut from mopane woodland and endless vistas across palm-studded floodplains, acacia woodland and ethereal riverine forests.
The Makuleke region was returned to its rightful owners, the Makuleke community who were forcibly removed in 1969, in one of the first land claims settled after the end of apartheid. The Makuleke community continue to co-manage the area for conservation as an integral part of the greater Kruger National Park.
