Shakati Private Game Reserve is hidden away on the lush banks of the
Mokolo River in the heart of the Waterberg bushveld paradise. Near Vaalwater and
only 2 hours drive from Pretoria.
Time spent at Shakati Game Reserve is about getting away from city life, work, traffic and stress. It is about peace and tranquillity, clean fresh air and clear skies.
It is about being quiet and listen to the jackal calling at night, to the paradise flycatcher singing in the morning. It is about seeing and walking with the animals, touching the fruits of the bush willow -and wonder about nature. It is about quietly sitting at the water hole watching game and taking life easy.
