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.
