The varied habitats on Mabula Game Reserve provide ideal conditions for an astounding selection of large mammals including the Big Five, other predators such as Hyena and Jackal, and a variety of antelope. That’s not to mention the elusive cheetah, cheeky honey badger and the omnipresent crèches of warthogs that flit across one’s path during your game drive at Mabula Game Lodge. Game drives are offered to lodge guests twice a day once early morning and again in time for sundowners in the late afternoon, and depending on the time of year you visit, each experience can be unique.
