    If you need a rest of your life, visit Mabalingwe! Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and neat. Quiet in the Bushveld but also near to Bela-Bela if you need to shop or go out for an evening. Place to be!!

    Beautiful view all over, you can see a lot of game and wild life. It was a very relaxing weekend and the staff is very friendly. The game drives that you can do on you're own is very nice. There is a lot to do.
