Luxury and Relaxation

Situated along the banks of the Mokolo River in the malaria free, Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, this family-friendly reserve has created a variety of unique visitor experiences around 15,500 Ha of awesome natural beauty.

We are so much more than just another game reserve - with thirteen kilometres of water frontage along the biggest river, with direct access to the biggest dam, with the most space per person per hectare, with the most pristine wilderness areas, and with the most diverse landscapes in the Waterberg.

The Lodge

Ka'Ingo offers a truly unique combination of excellent nature viewing in unsurpassed scenery, with a diversity of indigenous fauna and flora, rolling plains and majestic cliffs.

It is one of the few reserves that can offer luxurious accommodation and top notch service yet maintain the balance between the ecological integrity of the large natural landscape and the wellbeing of the animals throughout the year.

The executive suite and deluxe rooms all have their own private decks (for a romantic dinner for two) with views across the luscious gardens, which can also be utilized for family picnics

The Waterberg Biosphere

The Waterberg (Northern Sotho: Thaba Metsi) is a mountainous massif of approximately 14,500 square kilometers situated in the northern Limpopo Province, South Africa, and is the first region in the northern part of South Africa to be named as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

The average height of the mountain range is 600 m with a few peaks rising up to 1400 m above sea level. The extensive rock formation was shaped by hundreds of millions of years of riverine erosion to yield diverse bluff and butte landform.

The ecosystem can be characterised as a dry deciduous forest or Bushveld. Within the Waterberg there are archaeological finds dating to the Stone Age, and nearby are early evolutionary finds related to the origin of humans.

The small town of Vaalwater is located just north of the Waterberg mountain range, and Kaingo Private Game Reserve is located a further 35km northwest of Vaalwater.
