Gauteng may be the smallest province in the country, but that doesn’t stop it from offering incredible bush breaks with breathtaking scenery nearby. As close as an hour away from Johannesburg you can find Dinokeng Game Reserve, the only nature reserve in Gauteng to feature the Big 5 (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant). No matter which game reserve or nature reserve you choose to explore, you’ll find loads of activities for the whole family including bush walks, game drives and even the opportunity to go hot-air ballooning. There is a wide range of accommodation available, from self-catering chalets to luxury game lodges, all with a wonderful, authentic safari feel.
