Just two hours from Johannesburg and one-and-half from Pretoria, Mabula Game Reserve is a 12,000 hectare malaria free ‘Big Five’ bush sanctuary offering some of the best game viewing and birding experiences in Limpopo.

Home to some 60 mammals, 300 bird species, 100 plant types and numerous reptile and insect species, at Mabula Game Reserve, all natures’ wonders are revered – from the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) to the ‘small five’ (ant lion, leopard tortoise, buffalo weaver, elephant shrew and rhino beetle). This is the Heartland of the South African Safari experience.

All of Mabula Game Reserve’s activities have a common goal – to awaken the senses and quicken the pulse by presenting the African bush in ways you would never have imagined.

Once you have passed a reserve guide test, you can drive the lodge’s game vehicle, giving you freedom to come and go as you please. Early morning, middle of the day, evening… depending on what you want to see and what you want to do, game viewing, bird watching, photography, etc.

If keeping your feet on the ground is a particularly satisfying sensation, Mabula Game Reserve’s informative bush walks guided by a highly professional and experienced game ranger, will impress you beyond expectation.

Ideal for regular family getaways and entertaining, Bateleur Lodge offers unparalleled accommodation on the Reserve with views over an African plain and onto the Waterberg Mountains.

There is an opportunity to own a share in Baleleur Lodge entitling you to 4 full weeks per annum (spread throughout the course of the year). The property is managed by a managing agent and a committee with audited accounts.  The lodge is within the Mabula Game Reserve hotel grounds, but isolated from the hotel itself, which means that you enjoy the best of both worlds.
