The Camp

Mbala is a small private ecolodge set in the remote northern Waterberg Biosphere on 2 500 acres of pristine 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 Honeymoon bush chalet, Matete, 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.

Open Land Rover drives offer the opportunity to see some of the many animals and birds that abound in the area. Early morning coffee and rusks are served on the koppies overlooking the incredible views of this unique part of the Waterberg.

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

The emphasis at Mbala lies on privacy, comfort and relaxation. Enjoy the lodge gardens where you have the chance to unwind, chill and enjoy the bush. There are no TV’s, radios and limited cell phone reception – ensuring wonderful peace and quiet.
