Welcome to Mabalingwe Nature Reserve

It's hard to believe that what started out as a 2 141 hectare maize and game farm in 1972, over time became the Mabalingwe Nature Reserve we know and love today. This 9 500 hectare nature reserve is an unforgettably special holiday destination that forever leaves its imprint on the hearts of those who visit it.

Back in the day the Tswana 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!
