The Camp

Mbala is a small private ecolodge set in the remote northern Waterberg Biosphere on 2 500 acres of unique South African bush veldt. It offers world-class standards in accommodation, close wildlife encounters, personal family service and delicious homemade farm cuisine.

Mbala has five uniquely styled and individually decorated modern suites each with en-suite bathrooms. Indoor or outdoor showers and baths, air-conditioning, mosquito nets draped over queen sized beds all add to the romance and luxury of your stay.

For a personalized couples weekend break, our secluded Matete Bush Suite, with its open Sala, exquisite finishes and candles illuminating the private Spa next to an open fire provides a tranquil and unforgettable experience. This is the place to bring your partner for a well deserved break.

The farm dam makes for a refreshing pool to cool off in, or in the evenings just relax on the raised teak deck in the hot Spa overlooking the bush. Watch as animals come down to drink at the waterhole or just unwind at the fire, watching the most amazing night sky and stars.

The emphasis at Mbala is on privacy, comfort and relaxation. Enjoy the lodge gardens where you have the chance to unwind, chill and enjoy the medicinal plants and herb garden. Open Land Rover drives offer the opportunity to see some of the many animals and birds that abound in the area.

There are no TV’s, radios and limited cell phone reception – ensuring wonderful peace and quiet.
