Regarded as one of the pioneers of responsible tourism in South Africa, Managing Director, Andrew Anderson, has 27 years experience in both conservation and tourism. When asked what there is for the local market on Somkhanda, Anderson gets very excited. “Somkhanda is prime wildlife country accessible only by 4 x 4 vehicles. It has an extensive network of tracks making it a superb destination for the local responsible travel adventure tourist.” He adds, “Having worked as a ranger in Umfolozi and a passion for adventure I have extensive 4x4 experience and appreciate the opportunity to get to places less travelled, yet relatively speaking on our doorstep!”
The reserve’s main tourist camp offers quality self catering and fully catered accommodation. For the more adventurous traveller there is a mobile camping safari option set up in a secluded location on the reserve. Tailor-made fully guided and catered self-drive 4x4 mobile camping safaris are also offered incorporating a range of prime destinations in northern Zululand and Maputaland, with Kosi Bay, Lake Sibaya and Usutu Gorge as “bucket list” destinations.
