Entabeni Safari Conservancy, rightfully dubbed The Place of the Mountain, is situated in the World Heritage Waterberg Biosphere. Approximately a three-hour drive north of Johannesburg, this 22 000 hectare malaria-free reserve boasts five ecosystems.
This Big 5 reserve is complemented by five different lodges, each comprising a unique blend of luxury and African wilderness, perfectly set in different immaculate locations of the reserve. The upper escarpment offers majestic craggy rock formations and wide-open grass plains. This is separated from the lower plateau by 600 m high cliffs.
The lower escarpment is approximately three degrees warmer and comprises sandveld vegetation and a series of wetlands. It is a place where the lion still reigns as king and Mother Nature still mesmerises with her power and beauty. Your modern African adventure starts here!
Meals are usually served in the Restaurant. Wildside Boma is situated close at hand for those special evening meals around the open fire.
The pool area is ideal for day time meals and light lunches, while the Marula Boma is the ideal venue for that special out in the bush meal experience. Dining is informal.
