Mahlathini Private Game Reserve offers an intense bush experience – from being woken by the frantic calls of francolin, watching warthogs rolling in the mud on a hot afternoon, to sipping from a cold glass on your veranda whilst looking at elephant at your own waterhole, or listening to hyena at night around the fire pit – every moment is as exciting as the next! Your own 21 ha stand on Mahlathini encompasses living in the bush: private, tranquil and exciting!
Mahlathini adjoins the Kruger National Park in the east and the Letaba Ranch in the north. Situated in mopane/bushwillow woodlands, civilization is forgotten – even though Kruger Park Gateway Airport is only 7km away! With daily flights from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo Airport and many roads to travel by from Gauteng, Phalaborwa is easily accessible.
Services on the Reserve makes everyday life comfortable. Within 15 min from Phalaborwa town, 25min from Phalaborwa entrance gate to the Kruger National Park and only 30 min away from the 18 hole “golf-in-the wild” at Hans Merensky, Mahlathini combines a tranquil bush life with everyday access to amenities.
“Mahlathini” is derived from Tsonga-Shangaan, meaning “in the bush”
