Rita Versfeld - 20 January 2016
What a beautiful resort you have! We were there some years ago and still, up to today, recommend people to visit you. We stay in the Eastern Cape and if we do get away it (Mabalingwe) is close to Pretoria as the whole family stays there! Only 2 more years of school, then we will be able to get out more… Your resort will be the first we visit!

Rika Corneelsen - 12 January 2016
Mabalingwe is en bly ons gunsteling vakansie plek!
"One of my favorites" – TripAdvisor 5* (kimbittkau – May 2015)
I have been here a few times before and it is definitely one of my favorites. We normally stay close to the hippo dam. I just love the peace and tranquility. waking up to the sounds of squirrels playing on the roof, having breakfast on the patio with a warthog or 2. We were even visited by a porcupine one evening. Plenty to do for kids and adults without leaving the reserve.

"Unraffle Your Feathers"– TripAdvisor 4* (MirindaK – May 2015)
Take a break from the big city life and unraffle your feathers by visiting this serene nature reserve. Wake up to the call of the wild and watch the most magnificent sunsets!. Enjoy sundowners on your porch or at the ladies bar overlooking the watering hole. Engage the friendly staff if you require anything more that is already provided in your fully equipped chalet. Our 6 sleeper was short of nothing even to the point that mosquito repellent was supplied in the bathroom. Units are cleaned daily so no need to be bogged down by cleaning. All you do is relax! There is a built in braai area on the porch for you to prepare your dinner while watching the glorious sunset but if that is just too much to do then enjoy dinner in the restaurant. There is a shop on site to stock up on anything you forgot to bring from home. Buy some curious for family members from the shop too. Housed with many pools, you will never be left out hot in the heat!. While you relax at the pool, the kids can play putt putt, table tennis, pool etc or they can just laze at the pool. Take leisurely game drives and catch the big five! My daughter and I did this trip alone last week and we had no issues with safety and security. Getting ready to make my next booking
Lambii – March 2017 (TripAdvisor)
"We had such an enjoyable and perfect getaway at Mabalingwe (Ingwe camp) for our honeymoon. It really is a little haven away from everything. The room (studio chalet) was beautiful and clean, equipped with full kitchen, bath/shower, state of the art TV and a beautiful balcony equipped with a built-in braai. The view is breath-taking as well. We were greeted every day by a family of warthogs and their babies right outside our windows and front door, as well as the odd monkey and squirrel visiting on the balcony. Everyone here is so friendly, from the gatekeepers at the entrance, the receptionists, the game drivers, even the cleaning staff, everybody just seems really happy and friendly."

"We were invite by friends and had the most amazing time with them. The animals is well looked. Game drive is a must. Staff service was excellent. The cottage we stayed in was self-service and was neat and clean."

Myretooi – February 2017 (TripAdvisor)
"We are a couple in our seventies and had a midweek in middle January 2017 at Kubu Camp in Mabalingwe. The chalet was in very good condition with an excellent view over the valley below. The amenities are good and the place is very clean and well maintained. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Due to lots of rain, the roads were not in a very good condition at the time, and one had to drive carefully. The amenities at the resort are excellent and we saw lots of game and birdlife. Highly recommended!"

"Spent the weekend at Mabalingwe Nature Reserve; was an amazing experience. Kids enjoyed the place, had lots of activities at the Main Pool area to keep them busy; for the out- doors person, you have the option of a game drive or self-drive through the Reserve. The chalets are a home-away-from-home experience … very spacious with two well-appointed bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath; it has all the amenities required for a home and bush experience. Seen lots of animals at the Reserve and had a close up of the Elephants, what an experience." "Spend a weekend in one place - Perfect weekend getaway" – TripAdvisor 4* (Anthonie – March 2015)
From gamedrives to swimming pools, jacuzzis, a bar in the middle of the bush veld Mabalingwe knows how to entertain. We stayed over a quiet weekend in the camping site which was pleasant and facilities were plenty and very clean. Entertainment provided around the main swimming pool. Massive area for game drives, but animals were a bit shy. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and both were very good and service was fine. All and all the perfect weekend breakaway. We have booked again for June.
