Oori Nature Reserve
We in South Africa are privileged to live in one of the most beautiful countries and also to enjoy one of the largest bio­diversities in the world today. Situated to the south of the Magaliesburg range of mountains and within the beautiful Crocodile River Valley, lies a jewel of an area called the Oori Nature Reserve. The Oori (Tswana for Crocodile) Reserve itself comprises roughly 40 properties of ± 25 hectares each and although many owners tried farming of one sort or another, all have now accepted that there is a better way to manage the area.

This total area of some 750 hectares has now been perimeter fenced and internal fencing has largely been removed. Most of the dwellings have been fenced to retain domestic animals like dogs from the reserve.

The residents professions range from artists, sculptors, ex big game hunters, industrialists, business professionals, domestic workers and farm labourers. All of us choose to live away from suburbia and in harmony with nature. This provided the “common link” and driving force to create a Nature/Game reserve and to PRESERVE, CONSERVE and RECREATE what existed here some 200 to 300 years ago.

It is an amazing fact of life that, in the past, any form of human habitation has virtually always been at the expense of nature, fauna and flora. In fact, humanity must be Mother Nature’s greatest adversary. We in the Oori wish to reverse this trend.

The bigger picture is to create a number of smaller similar areas and then hopefully in time, unite them into one larger conservancy. This common love of nature and the environment within our community has created an amazing momentum of its own and a thirst for greater knowledge and understanding of nature.
