Alpetra Nature Reserve

Since 1985 – Waterberg Biosphere, Limpopo

We have been in the game and wildlife industry since 1985. We bought Alpetra in 2000 and have been breeding with our buffalos since then. The farm got its name from the owners Alan and Petra Fourie, and is well-loved 4000ha family game farm situated in the Waterberg Biosphere in the Limpopo Province. We are neighbours with Marakele and on some evenings you can hear the mighty roar of the lion, or the trumpeting of a herd of elephants. You can spot a great variety of species, including sable, giraffe, zebra, kudu, etc. on your game drives.

You will love to wake up with morning sunlight bouncing off the dam into the Waterfront Lodge, the buffalos grazing at Buffelsfontein, or with the cry of the pheasant chasing it’s little chicks into the tall grass at the Main Lodge. To decide on which lodge is best suited for you and/or your family, head on over to our Accommodation tab. We would love to meet you!
