Lowveld Odyssey | Wildlife Reserve & Traversing


What makes a game drive in a private concession different to a game drive in the Kruger National Park?

Both are done in Open Safari Vehicles however :

KRUGER - Semi Open Safari Vehicle has a canvas roof and side panels, vehicles are only permitted on the national tarred and gravel roads. 

PRIVATE CONCESSION: Completely Open Safari Vehicle, guides have premission to go off the road into the bush to be able to get the best visibility of the Big 5 Animals


Private Reserve that we operate in :

Leadwood Big Game Estate is home to some very unique and beautiful animals, exquisite views of the Mariepskop & Drakensberg mountains. Leadwood forms part of the Rietspruit Reserve where Lowveld Odyssey has traversing rights and offers morning & afternoon game drives. Enjoy the breeze on the back of our open vehicle while photographing Big 5 Animals that roam free on the reserve.  You will also be able to see Cheetah, Wild Dogs & Spotted Hyenas.  Our Breakfast & Dinners are hosted by the very exclusive Khaya Ndlovu Manor House....

Our Wow Safaris take place on a exclusive raised deck in the middle of the bush  and is overlooking a small dam where animals love to come drink in the afternoon.
