The Nkhube community situated on the boundary of Mlilwane North, faced with the need for clean drinking water. Big Game Parks provided a solution by installing a borehole and water tank at no cost to the community. The borehole and tank operate solely on independent solar power, making it both environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Solar was the chosen form of energy to power this project, due its environmentally friendly nature and its low maintenance. An additional environmentally friendly aspect, stemming from this project is the fact that the borehole water can also be used by the community to carry out household chores such as clothes washing. Instead of washing clothes in the stream, the community can wash clothes closer to home with no pollution of the stream caused by washing powders and soaps.

A huge thank you to Nedbank Swaziland for their sponsorship towards our event and of course to the riders for their contribution to the project fund through entry fees, which in turn enable us to carry out this wonderful community project!

Sawubona! Welcome to Big Game Parks' Blog! From the flatlands in the East, through the mountainous and scenic West, to the heart of the lowveld in the South East, the Kingdom of Swaziland not only offers you nearly every example of African landscape but also unforgettable wildlife, culture, adventure and birding experiences. Big Game Parks (BGP) is a private non-profit Trust which manages three game reserves in Swaziland: Hlane Royal National Park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and Mkhaya Game Reserve. All follow a common mission: to conserve the rich biodiversity of Swaziland's natural heritage. In 1960 the Reilly's family established the Kingdom's first game reserve on the Reilly family farm, Mlilwane. Hlane Royal National Park and Mkhaya Game Reserve soon followed and today the company's contribution to the restoration and protection of the Kingdom’s biodiversity is of great significance (BGP actually saved 22 species from extinction in Swaziland!) and can truly be appreciated by the discerning traveller. Swaziland is well-situated between Kruger National Park and Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Maputo. Big Game Parks’ well-positioned and diverse game reserves are an essential destination in any itinerary.
