Kwenga Safari Lodge

Officially part of the Greater Kruger National Park

Kwenga Safari Lodge, on the farm Boston is now officially part of Balule Nature Reserve / Greater Kruger Park and the elephant will now be free to roam this area after more than 100 years.

A word from the Chairperson of the Balule Nature Reserve, Sharon Haussmann after the cutting of the fence between Kwenga Safari Lodge on the Farm Boston, and the rest of the Balule / Greater Kruger National Park.

“Yesterday (8 June 2019) was one of those beautiful days that made me proud, happy and invigorated me for the many hours of blood, sweat & tears spent on Balule.
It was also one of those days that proved that ultimately people and relationships make all the difference.  It was a day that we celebrated people putting conservation first.

What a great addition to Balule Nature Reserve, after finalizing regularities last year and then complying with perimeter fence requirements, it was an absolute pleasure and honour to welcome the Frankel family, owners of Boston farm, to Balule.
This large and stunning piece of land with intriguing riverbeds and magnificent trees is a valuable addition to Balule Nature Reserve.


Nothing better than seeing fences come down for all the right reasons!”
