Getaway Summary

PRICE (unit):
from R 2,600 - 2,600
This non-profit, privately funded wildlife care and guest farm offers luxurious chalets which will reflect a true African atmosphere in the beautiful valley of the malaria-free Waterberg.

On our two-hour guided wildlife tour you'll get the chance to come close to orphaned antelopes, raptors, predators and other mammals that are hand-raised by us. A guided bush walk with a NQF4 Accredited Field Guide and our very tame kudu cow Sessi is a must. Other activities include hiking, swimming and birdwatching. After a long day of game viewing, you can relax in a sauna or by our fully stocked pool bar.

Our establishment is perfect for honeymooners. The seclusion and privacy will serve to make this holiday even more special. You will be welcomed with champagne, candles, love songs and everything romantic.

Airport transfers are available on request. Although cellphone coverage is intermittent, we do offer an Internet hotspot on the farm.
"Monkey interaction and friendly staff"

"Our stay at Babmbelela was great, the staff were friendly and we had a good time. My problem is with SafariNow. The description that SafariNow had of Bambelela was completely different from what we actually got. So why not promote Bambelela on its own merits (of which it has many), instead of painting a different picture. In addition to that, SafariNow still charged an R250 for a customer service fee, of which we only found out after we checked out, as I thought this was a key deposit. This will be the last time I book through SafariNow. In spite of that, we had a great time at Bambelela and will definitely go back"

"My stay for 2 nights at Bambelela was very much enjoyable and educational, Their staff is well trained and fully equiped to make one understand the dangers and the hurtwe as human beings impose on God's creation. I know have a different perspective when it comes to wild life. My only problem is that they only have 1 receiver for cellphones which somehow I feel it puts everyone around the establishment in danger in case of emergency for one has to go to a certain spot to gain coverage and that is if you are only using MTN , during my stay on Saturday their phone line was down also hence my concern.Besides that the establishment is breath taking and relaxing."

"We had a really wonderful experience at Bambelela. The hospitality was amazing, from the housekeeping staff coming to help light our gas stove to the accommodating personnel on the guest farm catering to our every request. The tour of the facilities by Sue was so informative and the interaction with the little monkeys and Phillipa was a highlight. Simply a delightful, relaxing weekend."

"The Farm is too expensive for the old worn out chalets. The furniture is old and uncomfortable. The appliances are breaking apart. The staff is friendly."
