About Izintaba Private Game Reserve

Izintaba Private Game Reserve is situated on a private game farm, just 290 km’s north of OR Tambo International Airport, outside of Vaalwater in the Waterberg, Izintaba offers self-catering and catered accommodation in six luxurious, fully equipped self-catering cottages. Sleeping between 4 and 15 people Izintaba Lodges are perfect for friend or family get together and reunions, birthday parties, small conferences, intimate weddings or romantic bush getaways. Guests can choose to either cater for themselves or select a dinner, bed and breakfast option, enjoying meals in our dining room.

Izintaba Game Farm is the perfect family holiday destination, welcoming children of all ages and offering guests the freedom to enjoy the bush at their own pace either walking, mountain biking, fishing, birding or doing a game drive on our 1200ha game reserve. Leave the city stress behind you and come and enjoy true peace and tranquillity in the Malaria free Waterberg bush.

The area is blessed with a temperate climate all year round and is malaria free. Leave your cell phone, TV and city stress behind you and come and enjoy true peace in the bush veld. At Izintaba we believe that a stay in the bush can be enjoyed in style and comfort. The thatched chalets are luxuriously furnished, very comfortable and overlook typical Waterberg bush veld. At the end of the day guests can relax on their patio and anticipate the magnificent sunset, make a wood fire in their private lapa, watch the incredible night sky and savour the heady scents and wild night sounds of the bush veld. The swimming pool, set amongst large boulders, is very welcome after a long bush walk or on a hot summer’s day.

Izintaba offers a wide range of habitats and scenery, which in turn supports a huge diversity of animals. Over 40 mammal species can be found on the property, from giraffe and brown hyaena, to aardvark and bush-babies. Over 200 bird species have been recorded in the area, as well as interesting reptiles and innumerable species of insects. Izintaba boasts a perennial stream, which leads to a dam and a wetland that attracts a variety of water birds, wide open Savannah plains where game is easily viewed, dense bush and rocky outcrops. A densely vegetated horseshoe ridge looks out onto an endless vista of mountains and valleys with no sign of civilization. It is down this ridge that a number of rocky ledges and beautiful seasonal waterfalls can be found.

                          The cottage was spacious and so comfortable. Everything was provided and the little fenced garden space around the cottage was perfect for our toddler. Nikki and Andrew were really helpful, providing us with all the details we needed beforehand and providing us with a cot. We had a peaceful weekend walking and driving around the farm and viewing the animals. Thank you!

                          I love this this place and I'm definitely coming back. We stayed at the Kudu lodge and the place is beautiful, clean, well provided for in terms of crockery & cutlery. Nikki and her family are very friendly and helpful. I can't wait to show my friends this establishment, we had a perfect weekend away...
