Kololo Game Reserve in Vaalwater
Kololo is the perfect destination for your safari, housing a wide variety of game and offering a unique malaria-free, child friendly environment for visitors. Children of all ages are welcome, Kololo is therefore perfect for families with children. The "big game" is safely behind the Welgevonden fence which allows children to walk and play on Kololo and still have the adventure of small game surrounding them. Visit the neighbouring reserve, Welgevonden, and view the Big 5 or enjoy the view from your own comfortable chalet.
Kololo offers guests a wide choice of accommodation when booking; from the tranquil Tented Camp in untouched surrounds, Drongo, Weaver and Kingfisher Chalets which are surrounded by acacia trees or Chalet Fish Eagle and Kudu, overlooking the Kololo River. Bush Villa's Cheetah, Elephant and Giraffe with three bedrooms and bathrooms are ideally suited for families and situated within close proximity to the swimming pool and restaurant. Guests can also book the 1916 restored farm house, Oom Piet’s Chalet and for those looking for a bit more luxury, there is the King's and Queen's Chalets which is set against the Kololo Mountains.

Reviews for Kololo Game Reserve
We had some wonderful holidays at Kololo in the Queens Lodge. We want to thank you for the warm and genuine heartiness of all at the Kololo Game Reserve, in particular of Abigail and Nathan! It was a pleasure to meet you!A MUST: Big-5-Safari-Trip! We will never forget the traffic jam in Southafrica made by three Rhinos. We felt always save and you can feel that the guides love what they do. Breakfast and Dinner were always delicious and tasty. 3 Nights is almost too short.
Very friendly and well informed staff. House was clean, spacious and well equipped. Very peaceful and relaxed break .
Awesome staff, food and great excape out in the bush. Had a wonderful time and made awesome memories to take with us
Excellent location. Secret tip!
Very peaceful and exclusive. Not alot of guests since there's only about 15 bungalows. The Game Drives are fantastic, and the Kololo reserve houses many of the none dangerous animals of South Africa. You can even hike and rent bicycles to watch the animals up close. The Welgevonden reserve is directly next to the lodges and alow for "Big Five" spotting. The guides do their very best to spot the animals by looking out for tracks and fresh dung. Simply amazing!
Very friendly and helpful. One of the few resorts that are willing to take day visitors on a game drive
Generally a great place to visit if you want to have the flexibility of selfcatering as well as go on walks and mountain biking on your own. Can still go and see the Big 5 on neighbouring Welgevonden Game Reserve if you want to explore that.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I had a great time on both game drives.
