Abstract: The study examined smallholder farmers’ perception of land reform in Reef, Nkomazi, South Africa. Data were collected from respondents using focus group discussion, structured and semi-structured questionnaires. Frequency, mean, percentage and ordinal logistics regression were used for data analysis. Results indicate that gender (P-value = 0.036, β=.862), age (Pvalue = .037, β = 0.56), education (P-value = .032, β= -.647) and farm experience (P-value = .002, β = 4.067) were significant variables influencing perception of respondents on land reform. The identified challenges of land reform beneficiaries were credit constraints (82%), insufficient skills (62%), inadequate market information (74%), and inadequate extension advisory services (65%). Land reform should be based on a clear identification of needs assessment, and guided by clear policy framework to address the identified challenges encountered by beneficiaries. Furthermore, post-settlement support should include effective stakeholder consensus during implementation process.
