Balule Nature Reserve is a protected game reserve in the Limpopo Province of South Africa and forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park. It is located on the western side Kruger National Park, southwest of Phalaborwa and north of Hoedspruit. Balule Nature Reserve covers more than 40 000 hectares in area.
The Olifants River is a perennial river which flows for around 20kms through the middle of the reserve which has high densities of Africa’s Big Five. The bushveld is roamed by herds of elephant and African buffalo, substantial prides of lions, and the more elusive leopards as well as rhino of both species (the grass-grazing white rhino and the rarer, leaf-browsing black rhino).
Other iconic species include giraffe, zebra and kudu, plus hippos and crocodiles can often be seen on the banks of the Olifants River.
As well as an abundance of wildlife, Balule Nature Reserve is home to more than 220 different kinds of birds including raptor species such as lappet-faced vulture, Pel's fishing owl, martial eagle and impressive larger birds such as kori bustard, ground hornbill and saddle-billed stork.
