A NATURAL HERITAGE SITE
Declared a South African Natural Heritage Site in 1997 by the late president Nelson Mandela, and nearly surrounded by the famous Ithala Game Reserve, Madaka is a true African gem hidden amongst the rolling hills of the old Zulu Kingdom. This area was declared a natural heritage site for various reasons, including the geographical significance, the rich bounty of wildlife, but in particular for the Protea Comptonii (Better known as the Saddleback Sugarbush). The Saddleback is a rare relative of the South African National flower - the King Protea and can only be found in three small areas in the world, Madaka Game Ranch being the most densely populated of these areas.
