Our family of six adults and two children aged 8 and 12 spent four nights at this property. Our first impression was "rustic" as the 6 sleeper units have thatched roofs and are NOT luxurious....I would say adequate for self catering. To our wonderment, warthogs visited us EVERY time we were on the patio, noses poking in our open doorway... More

We stayed here during Feb '14 and overall got exactly what we were looking for - time to relax, do nothing, read, swim, eat, drink wine and we even saw some animals. It was a mid-week visit, which I think made a massive difference! If you'd like to drive around 8 hours a day looking for the big 5 then... More

We spent a relaxing week at Mabalingwe in a sleep 6 unit in Phiri Camp. Our spacious unit was well equipped, although it would have benefited from a washing machine, and we quickly felt at home in our comfortable surroundings. During our week, we went on two organised game drives and many self-drive wanders through the reserve seeing a good... More

Having just returned from a great holiday at mabalingwe over the festive season, I thought it will be appropriate to put things in perspective after having seen some of the comments on tripadvisor. We stayed in a 6 sleeper in kwalata camp and the chalet was modern, spacious and very clean. Our unit was serviced every day and all bedding... More

We spent a glorious week at this resort in Chalet 15 at Ingwe Camp from 13th to 20th December. Checking in was a pleasure. The staff were very polite and made us feel welcome. As we were slightly early we had a quick light lunch at the ladies bar on the terrace with amazing views over the valley and the... More

I booked and payed to stay for 6 nights at the caravan park. On arrival I decided on to stay because of the general condition of the caravan park. I basically drove in and out of the caravan park. Since then I have at-least phone reservations 10 times to ask about a possible refund. Their first respond was that they... More

We just came back from what we thought would be a wonderful break from the city with our kids. It was our first time as timeshare owners at Mabalingwe. Our unit is nr.109 at Kwalata Camp. I went to bed at 11 o'clock on Friday evening and woke up at 2h30 with a black man standing in my room!!!! I... More

This was the second time we visited Mabalingwe, this time not by choice as family members had already made the reservations. We could have told them that from our previous experience this is just a nature reserve with lots of warthogs, monkeys and a kudu who come right up to your chalet. so not to have any expectations of the...

We booked one of the time-share chalets for a week, and our stay was amazing! The people who work here are very kind and helpful. The swimming pools we're all very clean and there are TONS of things to do here, and many animals to see. I must admit however, if you are used to 5-star luxury, this place will... More

This was my first trip to the African bush and I was a extremely worried about bugs - but am happy to say I had no issues with them while staying at Mabalingwe. The cabin I stayed in was clean and quiet. Plus there's nothing like stepping out of your room and seeing warthogs and monkeys! The service in the... More
