About Jabali Game Reserve

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. The magnificent swimming pool and large lapa provide great entertainment and boasts stunning views. Luxury, comfort, quality and service is what you can expect at Jabali Game Reserve.

The weekend started bad as we had to wait w hours for them to open the gate for us!! The rest of the weekend was lovely. The place is peaceful and scenery is beautiful. The chalet needs some attention. Small things like broken knives and egg lifter. The fridge doesn't really make cold enough. I suggest they consider DSTV as the current channels are very fuzzy and reception is bad. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. Also they could invest in loungers at the pool with umbrellas for shade. Overall not bad at all.

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...

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.
