” In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments; there are consequences” – Robert Green Ingersoll
‘Nkonka’ meaning bushbuck in Zulu.
Nkonka is a private non-commercial game reserve situated in KwaZulu-Natal, three hours north of Durban, and an hour from the Mozambican border. Positioned alongside Phinda and Zuka Game Reserves, Nkonka originally was a hunting farm, inviting tourists to hunt antelope and other wild animals. In August 2010 Nkonka was transformed into a conservation area, where in agreement with the Munyawana Conservancy fences were dropped thus expanding the area Nkonka’s animals had to traverse from 610 ha to 28 000 ha of pristine African bush. During the dryer months, large concentrations of game may be seen at any of the 7 waterholes, including lion, buffalo, elephant, leopard and rhino as well as the endangered black rhino. The splendor of the surroundings may be appreciated with over 415 species of birds. The Riverine is renowned for its beautiful and rare Fever trees among many other tree species. Qualified conservation game rangers are dedicated to taking great care of our land and wild animals to ensure we apply with the strict regulations of the conservation board.
