Camelthorn safaris operate from a privately owned nature
reserve belonging to the 3rd generation of Trollope
Brothers. The original reserve has been in the Trollope
family since 1919 and, over the years, has increased
in size to more than 17 000 acres. Harold Trollope,
a big game hunter and one of the original owners, was
actively involved in the early development of the internationally
acclaimed Kruger National Park and the Addo Elephant
Park. Hunting and wildlife conservation has been part
of the family's way of life for almost a century!
Camelthorn reserve is situated two hours north-west
of Johannesburg in a fertile valley between "Die Berg
van Winde" (the Mountain of Wind) and the Sand river.
The habitat varies from sweet thornveld, densely wooded
areas, rocky outcrops and mountains to magnificent open
plains. This enables an exceptional variety of species
to coexist in harmony, including white rhino, giraffe,
kudu, nyala, blue wildebees, red hartebees, eland, zebra
and many more. Over 250 varieties of trees can be found,
including the majestic Camelthorn.
