Inter-provincial leisure travel

We are thrilled to be able to welcome you and your loved ones to visit us for a much-needed break in the heart of the Waterberg, to catch some sun and bask in the tranquillity that nature brings.

Health and safety remains a top priority

The health and safety of our guests and staff is important to us. As we follow the regulations set out by the government and implement our own COVID-19 safety protocols, know that Mabalingwe Nature Reserve remains committed to providing you with the most comfortable stay.

  • Sanitation stations and sufficient hand washing facilities have been made available for use throughout the Resort. We strongly recommend that guests keep their hands clean and refrain from touching public surfaces.

Don’t forget your PPE

While the excitement of travelling is in the air, please do not forget to bring along your personal protective equipment with you on your trip. While washing your hands thoroughly with water and soap remains one of the best defences against the virus; an equally important protective measure is wearing a face mask to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It remains mandatory to wear a mask in public.

The Department of Health has provided the following vital guidelines that we need to observe regarding the handling of face masks:

  • The mask must cover the nose and mouth completely.
  • Your face mask should not be lowered when speaking, coughing or sneezing.
  • A face mask is intended for single-use; reusable or fabric face masks must be washed daily.
  • Face masks should not be repeatedly touched.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after removing your mask.


On that note, we think that now is the perfect time for that much-needed staycation! Although we all have to embrace a new normal, what remains the same is the fact that we are dedicated to giving you and your loved ones’ everlasting holiday memories and nothing less! We are ready and eager to welcome you to your favourite home-away-from-home!

The Mabalingwe Team, alongside VRS-Managing Agent, is working diligently in this time to ensure that the government-enforced regulations are adhered to and that stringent health and safety protocols remain in effect to ensure a wonderful holiday environment for all. Rest assured, these protocols as monitored by the HygenicHospitality arm of Vacation Recreational Services, align with the highest standards of cleanliness and sanitation.
