This privately owned reserve is the hub of the operation.
Characteristic to the beautiful Zululand bushveld, the Reserve has wide valleys, flat land and occasional ridges providing spectacular panoramic views, covering approximately 9 x 3 miles.
HARLOO is a true African wilderness with an immense diversity of game, birds and trees.
Experience the sight of the elusive and beautiful Nyala bull just before dusk, a graceful Kudu crossing the road, the elegant giraffe peeping at you through the thorn trees and the thrill of spotting herds of robust black Cape Buffalo.
