Welcome to the Waterberg !!

Set within UNESCO’s pioneering biosphere reserve – a distinctive ecosystem coexisting with humankind – the Waterberg (water mountain) region consists of a vast mountain range surrounded by diverse biomes ranging from savanna to grassland. The area is located in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. Aside from the spectacular mountains, the Waterberg’s sprawling plains include game sanctuaries, nature reserves and farms. The expanse is blessed with perennial rivers, natural springs and a climate suited for the growing of citrus, table grapes and nuts.  More than 100 mammals have been recorded in the Waterberg biosphere and the area is the home of many waterbird species.

The Waterberg is malaria-free and a paradise for the safari lover. It’s also a playground for those seeking adventure such as hiking, horse riding, and challenging 4×4 routes.

The Waterberg is somewhat of a well-kept secret where luxury lodges and other impressive accommodation facilities are your gateway to an unforgettable bush experience.

Wonders of the Waterberg: The Majestic BoababThe Waterberg is home to some truly majestic boababs. Also called the upside down tree, the boabab is firmly planted in African belief and culture as a tree of wonders!Some interesting facts:- Baobabs are deciduous, and their bat-pollinated flowers bloom at night.- Baobabs store large volumes of water in their trunks – which is why elephants, eland and other animals chew the bark during the dry seasons.- Humans utilise baobabs for many purposes, including shelter, ceremonies, food, medicine, fibre, juices and beer.- Animals like baboons and warthogs eat the seed pods; weavers build their nests in the huge branches; and barn owls, mottled spinetails and ground-hornbills roost in the many hollows. The creased trunks and hollowed interiors also provide homes to countless reptiles, insects and bats.Thanks to @africageo for these interesting facts! ... See MoreSee Less

Matingwe Lodge is situated near Vaalwater in Limpopo. The thatch-roofed lodge and free-standing rooms are surrounded by indigenous garden. Bird life is plentiful! Sable antelope, and other plains game, roam the grounds. It is quite safe to walk the hiking trails on the reserve. The plush, 4-star graded rooms, decorated to suit the South African safari setting, accommodate couples and families. While there will be no need for screens, a cosy, communal loft lounging space in the lodge is fitted with a TV. Meals are served in the restaurant in the lodge. Enjoy a sunny breakfast in the lapa overlooking the bushveld and dine by candlelight as you settle in for dinner later in the day. The bar is fully stocked, and the temperature-controlled cellar holds some of the best wines South Arica has to offer. Outdoors, a large firepit provides the setting for long, lazy conversations and the customary South African braai! In Summer, the rock pool and deck are popular with guests. In Winter, find a cosy nook in the living area, where a fire is always ablaze. #waterbergtourismsa #wonderfilledwaterberg #wonderfulescapes #WeDoTourism #BELABELA #Lephalale #MODIMOLLE #mookopong #Thabazimbi #vaalwater #limpopo #waterbergbiosphere #UNESCO ...
