Depending on the time of year, guests can encounter elephants, leopards, rhinos, cheetahs, hippos, as well as a pack of wild dogs (the second rarest African carnivore species, with only an estimated 2000 remaining specimens). Birdwatchers are treated to ample sightings of the several hundred species of bird typical to the Lowveld.
Scattered throughout the reserve are numerous lakes, perennial streams and dams that support the growth of large trees and underbrush, providing the perfect habitat for the wide variety of wildlife species that call Moditlo home.
