Back in the day the SeTswana words “mabala a nkwe” were melded and reshaped to form the name Mabalingwe. True to the character of the resort, the words used to name it have a special meaning… “Spots of the leopard”. And scattered all around the reserve, just like the spots of the leopard, you are bound to encounter all manner of things uniquely Mabalingwe and wonderfully NATURE, FAMILY and FUN!

Mabalingwe is all about getting back to nature – the spectacular 9 500 hectare landscape allows you to lose yourself in an authentic South African bushveld with abundant birdlife, stunning indigenous trees and shrubs and a wide variety of wildlife. Our passion for providing a holiday destination that has family at its heart means we care about providing the perfect space for shared quality experiences and celebrating family while having fun.


“We have been visiting Mabalingwe on numerous occasions, and with every visit we can only praise them for their outstanding service, quality of units and friendly staff. The self-drive facility is a huge bonus as it gives the family time to bond and experience the nature together and build memories. Although game is sometimes a bit elusive, it always stays a pleasure to admire them.”

“Spent an enjoyable time on my first trip there. Saw quite a few animals; we were lucky to have good weather. Staff were very helpful. Will definitely return in the near future. Accommodation was pleasant and we had warthogs come and greet us every morning.”

“We have timeshare, and have had for 33 years. We are not yet bored with it and, indeed, bought a second week. It is truly a lovely place, very well maintained, with great bird life and interesting game. Family facilities and much upgraded so this is also a great place for kids.”
