Jabali Game Reserve is a private and exclusive destination only 45 minutes from Pretoria, South Africa. Our luxury, private chalets boast incredible views and overlook the unspoilt bushveld. Game viewing in your own vehicle, hiking, mountain biking, mountaineering, fishing, and nature photography are just some of the activities available at Jabali Game Reserve.

Jabali means "small mountain" and wild pig. Jabali, as the name indicates, is located at the foot of a mountain aptly named Rhenosterkop and is a private nature reserve with spectacular views over Gauteng. Located just 80 km from Pretoria, it is easily accessible by tar road.

The reserve offers the most spectacular hiking trails encompassing wetlands, mountain and grassland. Jabali is also of great historical importance. During the Boer war the English and Boers battled it out at Rhenosterkop, and visitors will find all kinds of interesting artefacts around the mountain. Visit the graves of the English and the Boers and follow in the footsteps of the early pioneers.

Accommodation is offered in luxurious chalets designed for guests' comfort and pleasure. Each chalet sleeps up to four guests and features two bedrooms, a lounge and open-plan kitchen, and a private veranda with stunning views. The chalets are also serviced daily for guests' convenience.

Will never again visit this place!!

05 May 2014

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Jabali. Spectacular views and very relaxing atmosphere, relatively close to JHB and PTA. We were disappointed in that the water pressure was low and you had to ask for the water pump to be turned on each time you needed hot water for dishwashing or water to shower/bath etc, which we weren't informed of until we mentioned the water situation, once we knew we asked Jabi to put the pump on whenever we needed water. Also the lounge suite in the Kudu chalet was old and grubby perhaps it needs replacing or recovering, we covered them temporarily with the blankets supplied, something to consider. There was no DVD player as advertised, which you need if you like TV when away as the TV channels are ETV and SABC channels only, all out of focus, but was immediately sorted and supplied once brought to attention, very fast service. The Kudu chalet had more bushveld views than mountain views as advertised as the trees and bushes mostly hinder any mountain views. Other than that the chalet was very pleasant and we really enjoyed our break. Jabi, who works for the owners, was an absolute star and was at our beckon call when we reported any problems, he sorted it straight away. Excellent service! We would definitely go back again. Hopefully the minor concerns will be considered as this could be an amazing place to visit for a break from city life and would make the Chalet feel a little closer to luxurious as advertised. Thanks for the great stay.

This is a very nice venue with stunning views and very peaceful. We sincerely hope that the addition of 10 bungalows will not spoil the scenery and the tranquillity of the place. They should also consider to promote the alternative and much faster route as well. The dirt road is much shorter for the people with low suspension cars.
