Magari Safari Villa impact highlights

Magari is situated within the Jembisa Reserve in the center of the Unesco world biosphere reserve of the Waterberg, in Limpopos. Land and wildlife management is key and planned with the assistance of consultants and experts in the field. As a result, this pristine wilderness is being managed sustainably and conserved for the future.

The owners hold a deep-seated commitment to preserving and responsibly overseeing this extraordinary and stunning segment of the natural environment. Their foremost focus is on the meticulous management of the land and wildlife, a task undertaken in collaboration with experienced consultants and field experts. This dedicated effort ensures that the pristine wilderness is being sustainably tended to and safeguarded for generations to come.

To craft a comprehensive management blueprint for the reserve, the services of Dr. Fanie Venter, a distinguished figure in the field, have been enlisted. This meticulous plan encompasses every facet of land, river, flora, and fauna management.

On a broader scale, Jembisa Reserve is an integral part of the UNESCO-designated Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, actively participating in the Waterberg Nature Conservancy. This organization unites the majority of landowners in the region, with the shared objective of nurturing sound conservation practices, exchanging ideas, and offering mutual support. At the international level, our primary affiliation is with Fauna and Flora International, an organization we fervently endorse and support.
