Kololo is a very interactive game reserve that lets the guest become immersed in the wilderness. There are game drives, horseback rides, cycling safaris and cultural tours. It offers a great for becoming familiar with the South African landscape, both natural and cultural.
The Kololo Game Reserve borders the Big 5 Welgevonden Game Reserve. When staying at Kololo there are opportunities to visit the Big and Little Five at Welgevonden. Both these game reserves lie within the Waterberg biosphere and have a rich diversity of wildlife.

They also support the Waterberg Welfare Society to help people affected by HIV/Aids, and have started the Friends of Kololo foundation to raise awareness about wildlife conservation.
Then Kololo also offers an exciting cultural experience that not many reserves have the luxury of having. The Vaalwater Township is situated nearby Kololo and is a unique cultural site.
