Waterberg Exclusive Retreat

Bed & Breakfast Accommodation in Bela-Bela

Set against a backdrop of lush green mountainous vegetation, this game lodge is set in one of South Africa's finest private game reserves.

Only two short hours drive North of Johannesburg this 12000ha of malaria free reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and birdlife, including the world famous Big Five. Home to some 60 mammals, 300 bird species, 100 plant types and numerous reptile and insect species, here you will find all wildlife - from the 'Big Five' (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) to the 'small five' (ant lion, leopard tortoise, buffalo weaver, elephant shrew and rhino beetle). This is the true African safari experience.

We offer exclusive accommodation in air-conditioned luxury thatched house with 4 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms that have been designed to offer guests complete comfort and relaxation in this beautiful natural setting. There is also a fifth room with a pull out bed, shower and toilet.

The main house has a kitchen as well as lounge area with TV and DSTV, this opens up onto a large patio overlooking the plain. Guests can enjoy their evenings having a candle-lit boma dinner, under a clear star-filled African sky.

Hot and sunny afternoons can be spent lying around the pool or taking a dip in the 8 seater Jacuzzi.

There is an outdoor patio where guests can enjoy lunches and breakfast under the trees watching wildlife roam the plain.


Daily cleaning, setting up of breakfast, dinners around the boma are available to guests during their stay.


Highly qualified game rangers with years of experience and knowledge expertly handle all activities. For the wild-at-heart seeker of true bush adventure, nothing could compare with the excitement and thrill of big game viewing on horseback - a unique and close encounter of the wildest kind. Morning and evening game drives are daily highlights. There is also the opportunity to join one of the informative bush walks guided by a highly professional and experienced game ranger. Morning and evening game bush drives are daily highlights - the house has its own game vehicle and game rangers can be organized prior to arrival from lodge.

I would like to thank you for all your assistance with arranging for our accommodation at Mabula. We had such a wonderful time there. We cannot stop talking about how fabulous it was at Mabula and how well equipped the house was. Justine is a real Gem!!! Our family really had a fab time, and are really in Awe of the beauty. We hope that we could visit again one day. Have a super day.
