Just 2 1/2 hours drive from Johannesburg in Bela-Bela, a malaria free area is the lovely 4 star Mabula Hotel.  This hotel in the Waterberg Mountains is a very popular choice for local and international travellers. This fantastic property is spoilt for choice with animals, bird and plant species and the free roaming Big Five can be spotted anywhere along the grassy plains and rocky outcrops making this a safari experience of a lifetime.

This distinctly African style hotel offers thatch roof accommodations with luxury finishes.  The earthy toned rooms have expansive windows to allow your wildlife adventure to continue indoors, Guests can sit on their patios and listen to the calls of Africa while enjoying a glass of wine.  These home away from home rooms are all air conditioned with ensuite bathrooms.  The rooms have sleeper couches in the main room for children under 12 to share with parents or we can connect rooms or larger families, groups or friends.  The rooms are exquisitely decorated with elegant touches.

Meals at Mabula are a treat and there is something here to suit everyone from impala casseroles to vegetarian delights.  Our buffets will features fabulous fresh salads, roasts, breads, fish and an array of delicious South African desserts.  Light lunches can be taken on the terrace, in the lodge restaurant or at the Boma, where our African dancers will entertain you.

You will never be bored here, you can laze at the pool, have a spa treatment, take a horseback safari, a guided bush walk, quad bike safaris, bird watching or game drives and the kids can go crazy at Cubz Club.
