Mpofu is situated near the secret site of Chief Maqoma's Kraal. Its steep terrain and varied rainfall
supports a remarkable variety of animal and plant communities. The African savannah blurs into the extensive
tracts of rare indigenous forest. On the slopes of the Amathole Mountains 7500ha in extent,
it rests between Fort Beaufort, Post Retief & Balfour. It offers excellent opportunities
to see a rich diversity of game such as large breeding herds of Cape Buffalo,
Burchell's Zebra, Eland, Giraffe and White Rhino. Africa's great cats follow
silently in their tracks. Self-drive or allow us to arrange an
unforgettable day or night game drive in a customised vehicle.
WAYLANDS achieved National Heritage Site status for various
important reasons and boasts a unique colony of rare
Mountain Bamboo ( Tesselatus family ), and some of
the most easterly species of the fynbos biome.
We are proud of our growing herd of indigenous
Nguni Cattle and our own populations of
Mountain Reedbuck, Kudu, Duiker,
Grysbok, Lynx, Black Eagles
and the elusive Aardvark.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
