About Mabalingwe Nature Reserve

Back in the day the Tswana words "mabala a nkwe" were melded and reshaped to form the name Mabalingwe. True to the character of the resort, the words used to name it have a special meaning... "spots of the leopard". And scattered all around the reserve, just like the spots of the leopard, you are bound to encounter all manner of things uniquely Mabalingwe and wonderfully NATURE, FAMILY and FUN!

Mabalingwe is all about getting back to Nature – a spectacular landscape allows you to lose yourself in a true South African Bushveld environment with abundant birdlife, stunning indigenous trees and shrubs and a wide variety of wildlife. Our passion for providing a holiday destination that has Family at its heart means we care about providing the perfect space for shared quality experiences and celebrating family. You have the perfect setting, you've brought the family and now all that's left is… just have Fun. We invest a great deal of care and thought into ensuring your time with us is just plain Fun!
