Izintaba, a private game reserve, is home to wonderful examples of South Africa's magnificent bird life, a wide selection of mammals and innumerable species of reptiles and insects. Situated in the heart of the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, just two and a half hours north of Pretoria. Izintaba offers 6 luxurious, private and fully equipped self catering cottages, sleeping 46 people in total. Perfect for big or small family or friend get togethers, intimate weddings, small conferences or romantic bush getaways all offering you the freedom to enjoy the bush at your own pace either game viewing, walking birding or cycling or just enjoying the quiet from your private stoep. The area is blessed with a temperate climate all year round and is malaria free. Leave your cell phone, TV and city stress behind you and come and enjoy true peace in the Bushveld.

At Izintaba we believe that a stay in the bush can be enjoyed in style and comfort. The thatched lodges are luxuriously furnished, very comfortable and overlook typical Waterberg Bushveld.
At the end of the day guests can relax on their patio and anticipate the magnificent sunset; make a wood fire in their private lapa, watch the incredible night sky and savour the heady scents and wild night sounds of the Bushveld.
The lovely swimming pool, set amongst rock boulders, is very welcome after a long bush walk or on a hot summer day.

Mountain Biking:
A good network of farm roads enables the cyclist to enjoy riding in the bush. Tracks are either smooth or 4x4. There is always the possibility of coming face to face with a Zebra or a Giraffe around the next corner! Alternatively, the public roads outside the farm have very little traffic and offer longer rides.
Game Viewing:
Izintaba offers a diversity of habitats from open plains to rocky kloofs, to dams and seasonal rivers. This enables it to support a wide selection of wildlife. Guests are able to drive in their own cars on the farm roads to look for game or join a guided game drive. Most roads are suitable for sedan cars and only a few require 4x4. A map of the farm is provided on arrival.
Izintaba supports a wide range of fauna and flora, and because we do not have any dangerous game, the best way to take it all in and enjoy the beautiful scenery is on foot. There are game paths and with over 25km of roads on the property one can enjoy long easy leisurely walks. For the more energetic, there is a marked walking trail leading down a scenic Kloof, which has waterfalls and rock pools in the rainy season.
Discover the joy of bird watching with over 200 species recorded in the area. Check lists provided on request.
Cool off in the swimming pool set amongst large boulders and with beautiful views.
Tree Spotting:
The flora is very diversified due to the variety of habitats. It's a wonderful hobby to walk about identifying trees and wild flowers with a good reference book.
Picnic Sites:
Pack a picnic and enjoy the surroundings at one of our picnic sites.
There are endless possibilities for the keen nature photographer, especially as guests have access to all areas of the property, including a few hides.

Guest Comments

What a nice place to stay for people who needs a breakaway for quietness and being in nature. We enjoyed our stay and visit very much and enjoyed the game and nature. 16 Different butterfly species.

The lodge is fantastic - the three en-suite bedrooms are huge and very well furnished. However. the three bedrooms upstairs which sleep 10 sharing one bathroom are not of the same high standard as the ones downstairs. The pool can do with an paint and the pool table carpet required replacing. Nicki is very friendly and helpful. Overall, an amazing stay and highly recommended.
