The Waterberg Biosphere is one of the few UNESCO-recognised biosphere reserves in the world and holds the title of being the only savannah biosphere. Waterberg means “mountain of water” and is a mountainous massif spanning thousands of square kilometres, equivalent to about 80 percent of the size of the Kruger National Park.
The area surrounding the Waterberg mountain range is rich in cultural, archaeological and biological diversity. Some of the archaeological finds in this region date back to the Stone Age. Besides this cultural and historical significance, the Waterberg region is malaria-free and is still wild and untamed in certain areas.
This is Africa where the Big 5 as well as a myriad of other species provide phenomenal sightings. The Waterberg is a favoured destination due to its wild nature but also because of its close proximity to Gauteng and the city life. It’s the ideal area for lovers of nature, history and cultural experiences.
