We're anxiously awaiting the new protocols from government for Mabalingwe to start welcoming you and your families back to your favourite getaway and home-away-from-home.
In the meantime...

We may not be opening our doors for leisure just yet, but you can now look forward to WORK HARD AND REST EASY!
