It was by chance that we selected this game reserve and lodge, I am certain that we could not have been any luckier. The reserve is absolutely beautiful, the hospitality of the owners is top notch and the warmth and help of the staff just incredible.

We had a superb experience during our stay and would not doubt a second to highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay at Vilagama! I could arrange for my little dog that needed care to go with us. Erna and her husband went out of their way to make us feel at home and comfortable.

We will go back

I visited the lodge with friends for our new year chill. The place is beautiful, tranquil and the service from staff is out of this world. A special thank you to Mr Maponyane and the rest of the team including room services. Dolcy was also amazing🐕. 👌We are incredibly grateful for the experience and looking forward to come back. A warm hearty thank you from the rest of my team. What a gem.

We went to check as we want to take our local hiking club there. Perfect! Very friendly and helpful owner and manager. Beautiful chalets, small and bigger. Peaceful surroundings, well kept, clean. Lots of game to see - no dangerous or big five. Perfect for hikes and quad bikes. Must be absolutely lovely to sit at sunset and watch the animals come to drink at the water hole. We are going to stay over for a night or two!

We enjoyed a really lovely weekend here with friends and family. We were actually in the area for the Big 5 Marathon being run in Entabeni Private Game Reserve. The Main house has everything you need, with a great entertainment boma and fire pit. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The children loved running around and we saw quite a lot of game while walking the quad paths.

Our family had a tough assignment in the area, and needed a place to use as our base. Vilagama proved the perfect spot for us. The owners and staff were so friendly. On our first night, they even brought us some meat to braai - since we didn't have a chance to buy anything on the way there. Every night, the staff built a huge bonfire for us, and we could just sit and relax whilst watching the stars and enjoying the peace and quiet of the Waterberg bush.

As a group of eight, we spent the weekend at Vilagama and were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. The facilities are great, the staff are lovely, and the giraffe are graceful and beautiful. A perfect weekend getaway.
