The Dinokeng Game Reserve, situated just outside Pretoria, is the first free-roaming Big 5 residential game reserve in Gauteng – and probably in the world – next to an urbanized area. It is a private/public initiative for which planning and development started in the early 2000’s. It was officially opened on 22 September 2011 after the introduction of four of the Big 5. The last of the Big 5, the buffalo, were introduced in late 2012 and they have settled in well.
The current DGR is situated on the north eastern quadrant of the Gauteng Province of South Africa, 1 Km East from the Hammanskraal (R734) Boekenhoutskloof turnoff on the N1 North (Direction Polokwane) GPS Coordinates: -25.403236,28.296906.
Just over 30 minutes north of Pretoria on N1 Highway, 1 hour from OR Tambo International airport.
