Entabeni Game Reserve
Game Reserve is situated on more than 10000 hectares of beautiful scenery and
vegetation, compromising bushveld, unspoilt ravines and wooded hillsides that
are haven to the Big Five and a large variety of game. Extending from
Entabeni’s spectacular Hanglip in the east, the Waterberg mountain range
stretches over 150 km. Today the Waterberg is one of South Africa’s last great
wildernesses, and one of it’s major advantages is a malaria free environment.
Unique features of this area include spectacular scenery consisting of
grasslands surrounded by mountains, a 1,5km long lake, a 2000ft escarpment,
diverse wildlife and Big 5 game viewing. The Game Reserve reflects the rich
variety of the Waterberg’s terrain and its attendant diversity of flora. The
2000 ft sheer escarpment divides the reserve into a higher and lower area with
two different ecological systems.
Passing down through the breathtaking Yellowwood Gorge, the road twists down the escarpment between cliffs, waterfalls and forests. At the foot of the escarpment you enter a warmer climate with sandveld-vegetation, dense bush, plains and a series of wetlands – a birdwatcher’s paradise. Facilities comprise six well appointed luxury lodges. Each lodge offers inviting lounge/dining areas, specially designed furniture, fireplaces and all kinds of personalized service and creates the ideal setting for the discerning tourist. Various dining venues including five restaurants & seven bomas, conference facilities, a cultural village with tribal dancing and a wellness/beauty centre are offered.
Kingfisher Lodge: Set on the banks of Lake Entabeni, Kingfisher Lodge is the most exclusive and luxurious of all the lodges, offering superb personalized service.

The eight deluxe bedrooms and en suite bathrooms are stylishly decorated and feature fireplaces, mini-bars and private decks. The sparkling pool set in lush garden surroundings is an ideal setting to relax between game drives, while the boma with its lanterns under African skies creates magical evenings.
Lakeside Lodge: Lake Entabeni, 1,7 km long, lies between soaring bluffs and peaks, a wonderful place for bird-watching and viewing a rich variety of wildlife. The hippos of Lake Entabeni are a special feature.
