The Waterberg (‘Water Mountain’) is a unique wilderness area of South Africa yet to be fully discovered. The needle of the compass shudders as it swivels resolutely south-west to the Waterberg Region – vast, peaceful, incredibly beautiful and more than three million years old. Situated in the magnificent Waterberg Mountain Range. This region is a harsh but rewarding area of startling beauty, a beauty which lies in its superb vistas, mountain gorges, clear streams and rolling bushveld hills, all rich in indigenous species of plant and animal life – including the ‘Big Five’.
Vaalwater lies at the southern edge of the rugged Waterberg Massif, which is a biosphere that contains considerable biodiversity, including numerous large mammals including some of the “Big 5”. Several lodges in the region feature flexible ‘bush’ activities where guests can enjoy close encounters with free roaming game from horseback, walking or mountain biking. For this reason, they don’t have elephant or lion, which makes for a perfect reason to combine a ‘Big 5’ safari adventure in either Madikwe or Kruger Park.
