The Molopo Reserve was established in 1987 and has been restocked with game from other parks and reserves.

Today the reserve has flourishing herds of eland, blue wildebeest, gemsbok, red hartebeest, kudu, zebra impala waterbuck and springbok, as well as numerous steenbok. duiker and warthog.

Cheetah, brown hyena, caracal, black-backed jackal, African wildcat, honey badger and the small spotted genet are also resident in the reserve.


Over 120 species of birds have been recorded at Molopo, including breeding pairs of bateleur, tawny and martial eagles. White-backed vultures and lappet faced vultures are also common. The reserve forms part of a one million hectare inter provincial raptor conservancy.

Game Drives

Both day and night drives in the reserve are permitted with the permission of the authorities. A number of artificial waterholes have been constructed where concentrations of game can be seen.

The network of roads through the reserve are suitable for 4×4 (and 4×2 with diff lock), vehicles.

Special Feature

A special feature of the park is the fossilised Phepane river bed which can be visited and explored. This feature, which is many millions of years old, once carried huge volumes of water.
