Accommodation near Mabalingwe Nature Reserve

Mabalingwe Nature Reserve nestles in the shadow of the majestic Waterberg Mountains, 38 km west of Bela Bela, in the Limpopo province. Bela Bela is situated in the Springbok Flats, 112 km North of Pretoria and enjoys a sub-tropical climate with an average of 265 sunny days a year.

The park itself is spread over 12 500 ha and is rich in animal life, including Africa's "Big 5". It also houses a large variety of antelope, hippo, giraffe, hyena, warthog, small game and a very diverse bird population.

The reserve started out as a maize and game farm of just 2141 ha in 1972, belonging to the Wessels family. It was later developed and animal life introduced, transforming it into the internationally well-known nature reserve it is today.

The reserve offers a number of recreational activities for guests to enjoy, including game drives, bird drives, lion feeding drives and horseback safaris. After an exciting day of discovery in the bush you can relax with a superb meal in the excellent onsite restaurant, sipping cocktails against the backdrop of the setting sun and listening to nocturnal calls of the wild.

Mabalingwe Nature Reserve invites you to live the African experience!

Bela Bela Reviews

Bela Bela
Bela Bela is a nice place although forever resort entrance is way too steep for people who are on holiday. Maybe negotiate to work with guest houses around the area to give even 10% discount on entrance if you are booked in around.

Bela Bela
Bela bela does not have a lot of places to visit. The famous area is the warm water at forever resorts which was too high in price of R200 p/person, especially if you can't swim as this is the main thing to be done n the spars which are also very expensive at the rate of R550 for 30min.
