Wildlife

Due to the extensive biodiversity at Lindani, there is so much to see and do.

Game Viewing: Lindani has an attractive range of game – giraffe, kudu, (buffalo in a controlled area), waterbuck, eland, zebra, wildebeest, red hartebeest, impala, bushbuck and various other mammals. Guests are free to drive themselves anywhere on the farm roads, other than in the private lodge areas, throughout the day. Guests are not permitted to do night drives aside from the guided drives provided below. Motor bikes as well as quad bikes are NOT allowed on the premises.

 

Birding & Nature Walks: There are many different habitats on the farm – bush, forest, open fields and dams. This brings with it a large variety of birds. There are over 230 species on the bird list at Lindani. Guests are free to bird anywhere on the property other than around lodges that they aren’t staying at. We provide guests with a bird list and bird guide book at each lodge to assist with identification of the different species.

 

Biodiversity & Scenery: The Waterberg has over 2000 plant species with a variety of flowering trees in particular. The trees with their elegant shapes make a major contribution to the beauty of Lindani. A tree list is provided plus guide books are available in each lodge to assist with identification. The best time for veld flowers is late November and December, depending on the early summer rainfall. The area is graced with some of South Africa’s most pristine rivers whose wilderness quality is unparalleled. Astronomers familiar with the South African scene also agree that the Waterberg is one of the best sites in the country to view the wonders of the universe.
