Entabeni Safari Conservancy “The Place of the Mountain”, is situated in the World Heritage “Waterberg Biosphere” of the Waterberg region. Approximately a three-hour drive north of Johannesburg, this 22 000ha malaria-free reserve boasts five eco-systems. The upper escarpment offers majestic craggy rock formations and wide-open grass plains. This is separated from the lower plateau by 600m high cliffs. The lower escarpment is approximately three degrees warmer and comprises sandveld vegetation and a series of wetlands.

Nestled against the majestic cliffs of the Waterberg Mountain lies Wildside Tented Camp where you can experience the wild side of the bush. Stay close to nature in tented chalets on wooden decks.

Here, in the warm atmosphere around the campfire, you will experience an African night at its best.
