Only two short hours drive North of Johannesburg lies the African wonder that is Mabula Private Game Reserve
. This 12000ha of malaria free reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and birds, including the world famous Big Five.
Mabula Game Lodge offers a traditional outdoor experience for visitors wanting to brave the African wild, and together with Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp, guests have the chance to get up close and personal with nature and encounter a new dimension in bush life.
Home to some 60 mammals, 300 bird species, 100 plant types and numerous reptile and insect species, Mabula is the Heartland of the Safari experience.
Here, 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).
All activities at Mabula are expertly handled by highly qualified and experienced game rangers, and are sure to awaken the senses and quicken the pulse
For the wild-at-heart seeker of true bush adventure, nothing could compare with the excitement and thrill of big game viewing on horseback - a deliciously unique close encounter of the wildest kind.
Morning and evening game drives are daily highlights, surpassed in pleasure only by the feeling of camaraderie in sipping sundowners as you watch a truly spectacular African sunset from the luxury of one of Mabula's four wheel drive vehicles.
If keeping your feet on the ground is a particularly satisfying sensation, Mabula's informative bush walks guided by a highly professional and experienced game ranger, will impress you beyond expectation.Accommodation at Mabula Private Game Reserve
