Mabalingwe has “Cabin Fever” - and you?

You have no idea how much we miss you! We’re longing for the day when our gates will reopen and our valuable shareholders and guests will flock to Reception; receiving a warm ‘virtual’ embrace from our team and smiling from ear-to-ear as your holiday kicks off. The days when families excitedly embark on their game-viewing adventures, when the infectious laughter of children as they race off for some fun-in-the-sun, and the festivities as guests let down their hair at the Kalahari Oasis Bush Pub. You bring the vibrant “gees” that brings the Resort to life….

We cannot wait for what lies ahead for you...




We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing commitment to paying your levies and, by doing so, protecting your family’s crucial rest and recreation time that lies ahead.

Your ongoing financial support allows us to ensure our Resort stays open and that you will have a holiday destination when lockdown ends. A place where you can step out into the fresh air and take in incredible views, a place with jam-packed entertainment and activities to be enjoyed, a place where you can soak up incredible views of nature, or treat yourself to a spa day… and in the evening, a place where you can draw your loved ones close around a fire.

The reality is that every payment you make at this stage allows us to continue to contribute to Resort expenses; so that you may return to your well-maintained holiday home.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for your continued payments!

Your continued support means that when you arrive, Mabalingwe will be ready to welcome you with open arms and crystal clear swimming pools, comfortable and well-maintained chalets and all the familiar faces of the staff complement – we are so looking forward to these moments with you.

Lizanda Wolmarans shared this regarding her favourite family memories of Mabalingwe on Facebook:

“Mabalingwe is the most beautiful place to visit; to break away from the city. At Mabalingwe we can kick back and relax while the wildlife and birds keep us entertained. Staff are friendly, units can be called home. Whenever we visit, we never want to leave.”

Jaco and Kay-Lee Kroucamp also had this to say about their Mabalingwe adventure on Facebook:

“We definitely had the most incredible drive, we are not your usual family, very weird if you ask me and even our game ranger enjoyed the drive and had lots of laughter. He said we most definitely are the most unusual family he's every had. Incredible place, incredible people.”
