Mpongo Private Game Reserve

A unique experience of game viewing and true South African hospitality.

Home to a variety of African wildlife (elephants, lions, buffalos, hippos, giraffes, numerous antelope and bird species).

Mpongo Private Game Reserve offers a unique blend of luxury and wildlife experiences on more than 3500 hectares of conservation land. With its rolling hills, river valleys and luscious surroundings, it caters to the heart of even the keenest eco-tourist.


Nestled in the Malaria-free Eastern Cape, 35km from East London’s city centre and 40 km from the airport, Mpongo holds a treasure chest of beauty, rugged terrain and untouched land.



Whilst there are a host of activities available at the Mpongo Private Game Reserve, those looking to explore the area have a number of options available to them. Take a day trip to one of the many beautiful white sandy beaches of the East Coast or visit the East London Aquarium where you can watch whales swim in the Indian Ocean through a telescope or take pleasure in a seal show. Walk in the footsteps of South African golfing legends at East London Golf Course which has hosted the South African Open six times.
