Dinokeng Game Reserve perfect for safari holidays?

The Dinokeng Game Reserve has been opened in South Africa.

Situated in the Gauteng province, a number of people on South Africa holidays will take a trip to it.

Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane remarked that the park will "stimulate economic growth and create much needed job opportunities in the area".

At present, there are over 50 establishments in and around Dinokeng for people heading to the region to enjoy.

Three of the big five game are currently in the reserve – which stretches to 18,500 hectares – in the shape of lions, rhinoceroses and leopards.

Hippos, giraffes, crocodiles and various antelope species can also be viewed on a trip to the location.

It is hoped that Dinokeng will be able to get buffalo and elephants introduced at some stage.

Some 22.4 per cent of South Africa's population currently resides in Gauteng, which is one of nine provinces in the country.
