Despite the reserve’s great location and accessibility to restaurants, private hospitals, and shopping, it is secluded and remote giving a feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. It shares the areas’ renowned temperate climate, recorded as second in the world to Hawaii’s offering prime year round game viewing and outdoor safari living at its best!  Over 15 species of antelope can be found on the Reserve including kudu, eland, Impala, waterbuck, sable, grey reebok and many more.
