About Izintaba Lodge

Izintaba Private Game Reserve is situated on a private game farm, just 290 km’s north of OR Tambo International Airport, outside of Vaalwater in the Waterberg, Izintaba offers self-catering and catered accommodation in six luxurious, fully equipped self-catering cottages. Sleeping between 4 and 12 people Izintaba Lodges are perfect for friend or family get together and reunions, birthday parties, small conferences, intimate weddings or romantic bush getaways. Guests can choose to either cater for themselves or select a dinner, bed and breakfast option, enjoying meals in our dining room.

Izintaba Game Farm is the perfect family holiday destination, welcoming children of all ages and offering guests the freedom to enjoy the bush at their own pace either walking, mountain biking, fishing, birding or doing a game drive on our 1200ha game reserve. Leave the city stress behind you and come and enjoy true peace and tranquillity in the Malaria free Waterberg bush.

The area is blessed with a temperate climate all year round and is malaria free. Leave your cell phone, TV and city stress behind you and come and enjoy true peace in the bush veld. At Izintaba we believe that a stay in the bush can be enjoyed in style and comfort. The thatched chalets are luxuriously furnished, very comfortable and overlook typical Waterberg bush veld. At the end of the day guests can relax on their patio and anticipate the magnificent sunset, make a wood fire in their private lapa, watch the incredible night sky and savour the heady scents and wild night sounds of the bush veld. The swimming pool, set amongst large boulders, is very welcome after a long bush walk or on a hot summer’s day.

Izintaba offers a wide range of habitats and scenery, which in turn supports a huge diversity of animals. Over 40 mammal species can be found on the property, from giraffe and brown hyaena, to aardvark and bush-babies. Over 200 bird species have been recorded in the area, as well as interesting reptiles and innumerable species of insects. Izintaba boasts a perennial stream, which leads to a dam and a wetland that attracts a variety of water birds, wide open Savannah plains where game is easily viewed, dense bush and rocky outcrops. A densely vegetated horseshoe ridge looks out onto an endless vista of mountains and valleys with no sign of civilization. It is down this ridge that a number of rocky ledges and beautiful seasonal waterfalls can be found.

Safari: Situated on a 1200 ha private game reserve where guests are able to enjoy the bush at their own pace either walking or hiking, mountain biking, fishing, birding or going on a game drive with a qualified guide or on their own.

Wedding Venues: We cater for small intimate bush weddings. Our beautiful natural surroundings are the perfect backdrop for the ceremony and bridal photo shoot, and a thatched venue with roaring central fireplace to celebrate your union.

                          We loved this little cottage, tucked away amongst the rocks and trees. Only the sounds of the bush broke the complete tranquility of this gem. Beautifully decorated and equipped for the romantic getaway we needed. At night we turned off all the lights to admire the heavens - what a spectacular sight. Being visited by the resident porcupine rustling past us was an extra treat. Andrew was very well informed and could answer any questions we put to him. Thank you so much Andrew and Nikki for making our tenth wedding anniversary a memorable one.

                          We had a wonderful stay. The accommodation is first class with everything one could need or want. Such a pretty, quaint chalet and such friendly hosts. We booked meals and they were really tasty and perfectly prepared. We will definitely be visiting again.

                          We loved our four night stay at Duiker Cottage, Izintaba. You would never have known that it was 'off grid'. The road leading to Izintaba was a bit sandy and rutted in places but our Toyota Avanza coped fine. The place was easy to find and on a arrival we were pleasantly met by the owner and her cat. We drove to the cottage now in the dark and stopped several times for a nightjar who sat patiently as we got out of the car to have a closer look at him. Duiker cottage was far bigger than we expected and we really loved the look and feel of the place. We booked two breakfasts and two dinners,...
