If you need some tranquility in your life, please do yourself a favor and book a visit at Mabalingwe. My highlight was the Sunset and Night Drives, even though there are plenty of other activities if you are looking for something to do. It is child friendly and they really do provide activities and fun for the whole family.

Mabalingwe has been our favourite Bush destination for many years, especially because we can do our own game drives. Part of the fun is to find the elephants, rhinos and buffaloes yourself, while the warthogs, kudus and monkeys find you at (or even inside!) your chalet.
