Intaba lodge is situated between Carolina and Machadadorp in the picturesque Mpumalanga Province in the Doornkop Wildlife and Fish Resort.
Doornkop, which is set in the heart of the Komati Valley, is a private reserve with rolling hills and grassland savannahs. Both the Komati River and the Swart Spruit wind their way through the reserve. The resort offers fly fishing in numerous well-stocked dams and in the two rivers.
Doornkop is fully game-fenced and is currently stocked with many species of large mammals, such as Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Impala, Kudu and Waterbuck. Smaller game such as Duiker, Jackal and Warthogs are regular visitors. Because of its position on the edge of the Low and Highveld, it is home to well over 200 species of bird. The call of the Fish Eagle is a common occurrence. Game viewing can be enjoyed on foot, on mountain bike, on horseback or on 4x4 vehicles. Numerous hiking trails are available. There are two waterfalls which form part of the hiking trails and the Ruins of the ”People of the Sun”, believed to be 2 000 years old, is definitely worth a visit.
