About Twiga Lodge Mabalingwe

Nestled in the Mabalingwe Nature Reserve, just two hours from Johannesburg and 28 km from Bela Bela, Twiga Lodge offers affordable self-catering accommodation and is the ideal family getaway for nature and animal lovers.

Come and spend a few days in the African bush, and see the animals roaming around the Lodge, and rest, rejuvenate and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity.

The Lodge is fully-equipped for self-catering with a lounge, dining room, kitchen, three double en-suite air-conditioned bedrooms and two single beds in loft (can sleep six adults and two kids under 10 years.) There is a large patio with a splash pool.

The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, electric oven, stove, fridge, dishwasher and ice machine. Warm-up during colder nights in front of the fireplace in the lounge, while watching a movie.

A large patio with built-in braai area spreads out onto the Jacuzzi splash pool (which is an attraction in itself, with some animals thinking of it as the local watering hole...); there is also an outside fire pit. The Lodge has a private watering hole which attracts a variety of wildlife on a daily basis. Twiga Lodge has two shaded parking bays.

Set in a secure reserve with 24-hour security, the Lodge nestles in the shadow of the majestic Waterberg Mountains. The reserve includes a restaurant and ladies bar, bush pub, shop, liquor store, ATM and fuel.

The reserve offers a variety of activities, including game drives, bird drives, lion feeding, archery, paintball, abseiling, tennis courts, putt-putt, squash court and horseback safaris. You are also allowed to enter the game viewing areas in your own vehicle.

Twiga Lodge is the ideal private accommodation for a getaway weekend, relaxing holiday or even overnight business travelers.

We loved to sit and watch the animals on our doorstep. And the house is very comfortable.

I just want to thank Leonie and team for the brilliant service that we received when staying at Twiga Lodge! especially the birthday gift that was so unexpected, and really appreciated! It's a wonderful Lodge, with a watering hole right in front, we saw animals less than 10 meters from us, the place is beautiful and comfortable, with everything that you need! We really really enjoyed our stay, and will definitely be back!
