General Information

Markus Jebsen’s years of passion for Africa and Conservation led him to invest into what is now called Zingela Nature Reserve. In 2007, the immense project of converting the land into a Nature Reserve as well as returning endemic wildlife to their natural environment, began.

Our vision, goal and main focus has become the development of a larger, free-roaming Nature and Wildlife Reserve as well as restoring the ecology and wildlife to their natural habitats and conditions.  Thus, elephants will be able to, once-again, roam freely on their ancient migratory routes between Botswana and the Limpopo valley as they did 100 years ago. Zingela Nature Reserves’ long-term responsibility has always been, and will remain – Biodiversity, Ecology and Nature Conservation.

Book your trip today and indulge in the magnificent beauty that Zingela Nature Reserve has to offer.
