An African Experience

Experience the Africa of old: touch the great, grey, green, greasy Limpopo of Rudyard Kipling; walk in the footsteps of explorer-painter Thomas Baines; explore the haunts of legendary hunter, Frederick Courteney Selous; bring to life to writings of Louis Leipoldt and Eugène Marais; enjoy the tranquility; embrace the freedom; treasure the memories

Here you can experience this special part of Africa, and savour the unspoilt Limpopo Valley Bushveld with its majestic riverine woodland, abundant wildlife and especially diverse birdlife.

Visits to Mmabolela are limited to homestead guests only, ensuring an exclusive 'go-where-you-will' stay.
