The Waterberg is a lovely place to relax after all the stresses of life. The people are lovely and friendly. The bonus is that the weather is mild in our extremely hot country.

One of the best destinations of SA. A stones throw from JHB and yet a world apart.

The seemingly impenetrable Waterberg Mountain Range covers 14,500 square km – the equivalent of 80% of the Kruger National Park – and is one of Limpopo's major mountain ranges.
The area surrounding the Waterberg Mountain Range is an immense storehouse of cultural, archaeological and biological diversity. It is a breathtakingly beautiful area that is well worth a visit for anyone who loves nature, and all in it
There are over 500 UNESCO-recognised biosphere reserves in the world – spread over 100 countries – and linked through the World Network of Biosphere Reserves. The Waterberg is one them, since 2001, and the only savannah biosphere reserve in the world!
The Waterberg Biosphere Reserve stretches from Marakele National Park in the south west to Wonderkop nature reserve in the north-east. Ringed by escarpments on three sides, the Waterberg forms a wide basin in which four of the main rivers in Limpopo originate. The landscape is one of rolling hills and endless vistas, with a distinct bushveld feel.
This region is a magical part of South Africa and offers experiences that are as diverse as there are many: wide open spaces with a rare wilderness quality, the romance of true bushveld, a rich biodiversity, and close encounters with some of Africa's most charismatic and sought-after wildlife.
Discover fascinating people and places... on foot, on horseback or in a vehicle. In the Waterberg you have it all at your fingertips!
A Waterberg Meander showcases prime tourist attractions within the area, exposes a series of community linked projects and provides a rich informative self-drive tour of historical, geological, cultural and environmental sites along the route.
The Meander is organised in 3 sections: 13 community linked projects along the route, 22 sites of interest along the route, a multitude of places to stay & things to do.
