    The game reserve I have chosen is called Golden Gate Highlands National Park located in South Africa. Although they do not have the “big five” animals (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and the rhino) to view, they have other animals. Visitors can enjoy the black wildebeest, white tail, Burchell’s zebras, blesbok, mountain reedbuck and oribi. The park is great for scenery views, hiking and birding destinations. The highland grassland with patches of Afromontane forest in gorges and ravines protects the park from very cold conditions and fires. Golden Gate Highlands is the only grassland national park in South Africa with 60 different species of grasses found.

    The Amakhala it’s located in the malaria free eastern cape of South Africa. This Game Reserve used to be a conservation venue in 1999. Then, the members of Amakhala decided to make it a game reserve in 2011. This game reserve is a unique place because it allows animals to be where they once lived free; by doing this they are maintaining their heritage. The Amakhala offers people the “Big 5 Safari”, where you can find a wide variety of wild animals. Some common animals are Elephant, Giraffe, Hippo, Buffalo, Zebra, Wildebeest, White Rhino, Lion, and Hyena.

    Gaborone game reserve

    This reserve was located in Botswana, South Africa. It was established in 1988 by the Kalahari Conservation Society to give the Gaborone public an opportunity to view Botswana’s wildlife in a natural and accessible location. Although the reserve is only 5 sq km, it’s the third-busiest in the country and boasts wildebeest, elands, gemsboks, kudu, ostriches and warthogs. Also, the Gabarone Game Reserve has also grown in popularity as one of Botswana’s prime birding destinations. The birdlife, which includes kingfishers and hornbills, is particularly plentiful and easy to spot from observation areas. Moreover, the reserve also has a few picnic sites, a game hide and a small visitor-education centre.

    Littlebredy village is located between 30 and 50 feet above sea-level. It is located in England. In that village there is a bird reserve that is called the Valley of Stones. In prehistoric times it was used as a source of building material for nearby constructions such as tombs and stone circles and within 4 miles are two thirds of all such structures in the county. Folklore attibutes the origin of the stones to have been two giants playing stone-throwing games, but they are the result of conditions at the end of the last ice age when freezing and thawing caused sandstone on surrounding hilltops to break up and slump downhill. The stones and the surrounding dry chalk valley provide habitats for a variety of flora and fauna including clustered bellflower, autumn gentian, lichens, bryophytes and the adonis blue butterfly and the area is designated a National Nature Reserve.
