About  Us

Come live the African experience!

Mabalingwe was established in the late 80’s by Mr. Basie Wessels. Spread over more than 8 500 hectares and malaria free unspoiled bushveld, Mabalingwe Game Reserve nestles in the shadow of the majestic Waterberg Mountains. We are about nature. Beautiful sunsets from our best view points. Rich in abundant bird and animal life, we give you the real African experience. In our tradition of ‘something for everyone’ there are a number of recreational activities to be found.

After a memorable day of activities, e.g. Lion Feeding or a game drive with one of our well-trained rangers, you can visit our Caravan Park Shop & Liquor Store for all your necessities.

Either book a private lodge or camping in our famous caravan park where you can relax against the backdrop of the setting sun, listening to nocturnal calls of the wild.

The service and friendliness of the staff combined with the wonders of the wild, will ensure you leave Mabalingwe with unforgettable memories and the realization that you are indeed ‘richer’ for partaking in this breath-taking experience.

At Mabalingwe Game Reserve we have a large Variety Of Species

Our passionate and friendly staff are committed to making your stay comfortable and memorable.
