The Research Centre is an independent entity based on a 4000-hectare Private Game Reserve in the remote North-Western part of the Limpopo Province.

Our research interests lie with species adaptation to changing environments, species competition and animal vigilance. Mogalakwena reserves have a high biodiversity and your research questions can be answered by studying our birds, primates, herbivores, carnivores, reptiles, invertebrates and/or vegetation of the sweet arid bushveld. Most of our students decide upon a research question and a study species before they arrive at Mogalakwena. They will then spend the duration of their stay doing their own research project, while contributing and building on our existing database. On average you will spend 6 hours per day collecting data in the field, 4 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. During the hottest hours of day (between 12 and 3 in summer) you might prefer not to be in the field, unless you are studying the coping mechanisms of animals in the heat or if you absolutely love the African sun.
