The Waterberg region, located less than a three-hour drive from Johannesburg, has been described as one of South Africa's best kept secrets. The area has been inhabited over hundreds of thousand years and is also one of the most important San Rock Art areas in South Africa.



Situated in the magnificent Waterberg Mountain Range of the Limpopo Province, the Waterberg is the ideal getaway allowing visitors to revel in the great natural beauty of the bushveld savannah and its rich wildlife heritage.

It is a place of rugged beauty with a diverse plant and animal life. Apart from the awe-inspiring mountain scenery, the area is home to various game sanctuaries and nature reserves. Big game such as elephant, lion, white and black rhino, hippo, leopard and buffalo roam the reserves. Birdwatchers will delight in the more than 300 bird species.

Within the Waterberg region is the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve. The reserve has led to the amalgamation of conservation areas in order to protect more than 150 000 hectares of the Waterberg-habitat. Here you'll find some of the last truly wild places in the country serving as sanctuary for rare and endangered animals. The private game reserves and the Marakele National Park are mostly visited for the variety of game and bird species and scenery. The wildlife also includes the big five.

The reserves of the Waterberg are all malaria free, making this area a perfect safari destination for those families with young children. Twice daily game drives are offered at most lodges, presenting guests with the perfect opportunity to view the African wildlife in their natural habitat.
