Mpongo Private Game Reserve


Mpongo Private Game Reserve offers visitors a one-of-a-kind experience of game viewing and true South African hospitality.

Home to elephant, lion, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, numerous antelope and bird species, Mpongo Private Game Reserve offers a unique blend of luxury and wild life experiences on more than 3500 ha of conservation land. Enjoy a day, weekend or a whole week at this magnificent reserve in the heart of the Eastern Cape. 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. It is the oldest aquarium in South Africa and houses more than 400 species of marine and freshwater life. Walk in the footsteps of South African golfing legends at East London Golf Course which has hosted the South African Open six times.
