Nestling snugly in the belly of the Bushveld, 60km from Warmbaths/Bela Bela and a mere 220km from Johannesburg (2hr 30min drive), driving is easy and mostly on tar roads in good condition. As implied by the region’s name, the Bushveld’s well-grassed plains are dotted by dense clusters of trees and tall shrubs. The grasses found here are generally tall and turn brown or pale in winter, which is the dry season throughout most of Southern Africa.
With the Waterberg Mountains as the backdrop, Ditholo Wildlife Estate offers vast open plains and waterways teeming with a variety of wildlife.
The Estate covers 1000 hectares of lush scrub veld, woodland and plains with an impressive selection of endemic trees and flora.
