Entabeni - "The Place of the Mountain" is a stunning reserve situated within the World Heritage Waterberg Biosphere. This 22,000ha malaria-free reserve is only three hours north of Johannesburg and boasts five ecosystems. The upper escarpment offers majestic craggy rock formations and wide-open grassy plains. This is separated from the lower plateau by 600m high cliffs. The lower escarpment is approximately 3 degrees warmer and comprises sandveld vegetation and a series of wetlands.
Within this spectacular landscape all of the Big Five reside, along with plentiful plains game too. Riding safaris take place on both the upper and lower escarpments so you get to experience not only the stunning ecosystems, but also search for a high number of animals.
Your guides are experienced, fully qualified and will teach you the signs to look for as you track the game, as well as introducing you to exhilarating riding across the plains.
The usual riding safari itinerary includes staying in lodges on both the upper and lower escarpments as well as spending nights in a fly camp in the bush for an authentic African adventure.
The shorter itinerary is mainly centre based and can be tailormade to suit your preferences, with a minimum stay of 3 nights. This itinerary is easier to accommodate non-riders as you spend most nights at the same lodge where game drives and bush walks are also on offer.
