Only two short hours drive North of Johannesburg lies the African wonder that is Mabula Private Game Reserve. This 12000ha of malaria free reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and birdlife, including the world famous Big Five.

Home to some 60 mammals, 300 bird species, 100 plant types and numerous reptile and insect species, at Mabula Game Reserve, all natures' wonders are revered - from the 'Big Five' (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) to the 'small five' (ant lion, leopard tortoise, buffalo weaver, elephant shrew and rhino beetle). This is the Heartland of the South African Safari experience.

All of Mabula Game Reserve's activities have a common goal - to awaken the senses and quicken the pulse by presenting the African bush in ways you would never have imagined. Highly qualified game rangers with years of experience and knowledge expertly handle all activities. For the wild-at-heart seeker of true bush adventure, nothing could compare with the excitement and thrill of big game viewing on horseback - a deliciously unique close encounter of the wildest kind.

Morning and evening game drives are daily highlights, surpassed in pleasure only by the feeling of camaraderie in sipping sundowners as you watch a truly spectacular African sunset from the luxury of one of Mabula's four wheel drive vehicles.

If keeping your feet on the ground is a particularly satisfying sensation, Mabula Game Reserve's informative bush walks guided by a highly professional and experienced game ranger, will impress you beyond expectation. If you are however looking for a unique game viewing experience, then you will be sure not to pass up the opportunity of viewing the Big Five from a hot air balloon.
