Dinokeng Game Reserve has evolved into an oasis for tourists and conservationists alike.

Situated within the mostly urban Gauteng, it offers nature lovers an accessible escape from the city.

The Dinokeng Game Reserve is the closest free-roaming Big Five destination to the urban centres of Gauteng, and the only offering of this kind in the province. The game reserve was opened in September 2011. This book celebrates the developments that have taken place during its first decade of development. This has included the re-introduction of key species, the challenges of management in fighting poaching and maintaining a more pristine environment in the context of a model of multiple land-owners trying to live in harmony with nature. The reserve is described from a multiple of perspectives from the casual and anecdotal through to the specific and scientific. The book covers a wide variety of topics from big cats and elephants though to birds, snakes and even trees. Progressive conservation projects will only succeed if local communities derive benefit from the reserve, so a chapter on some of these projects is included. The Dinokeng Game Reserve is a unique and fascinating project and this book captures the remarkable dreams and development over its first decade and beyond.
