Zuka Private Game Reserve shared its southern and western boundaries with a property called Sutton, an area of 2,099 hectares. The Sutton property was finally incorporated into Zuka Private Game Reserve in 2008, extending our footprint to excess of 5,500 hectares. Consequently this meant the Munywana Conservency could count over 20,000 hectares of land as officially under conservation and photographic tourism.
The Sutton property comprises Zululand Lowveld Savanna with Riverine Vegetation and Melanic Smectite Clay soils. This soil type hosts an abundance of productive grasses and vegetation types which in turn significantly adds to the overall carrying capacity of the reserve. This addition of the Sutton property enabled us to reintroduce four more black rhino in to the conservancy.
