    I am currently staying in the Mulders Drift district just a little North-west of Johannasburg. This region has a number of wedding venues, country hotels, wineries etc. While here I became aware of the following six private parks in the region. My schedule (I am attending a wedding) prohibit me from visiting any of them but I thought I might mention them so that another zoo-chatter visiting the region might be able to include a visit.

    The Elephant Sanctuary
    Rhino and Lion Reserve
    Lion & Safari Park
    Monkey Sanctuary
    Hattieā€™s Horse Trail Safari
    Mountain Sanctuary Park (this one at 1000ha is much closer to a wild environment)

    I would be interested to hear if anybody has visited any of them.
    Crowthorne and FunkyGibbon like this.
