Mbazo Safari Lodge is situated in the Big 5, Black Rhino Game Reserve within the Pilanesberg National Park,. This luxury lodge is an oasis of wildlife, and adventure just 2-hours away from Johannesburg. Tucked away in a tamboti forest in the exclusive Black Rhino reserve, a private conservancy located on the unfenced north-west border of the Pilanesberg National Park, Mbazo is a stunning lodge that will delight fans of the latest contemporary game lodge architecture and style!

The focus of this lodge is to promote and protect the surrounding wildlife and landscape whilst providing a luxurious and rejuvenating space to kick back and relax. There are five two-sleeper chalets boasting a modern elegance that perfectly capture the elements of Africa. These chalets offer king-sized beds, fully-stocked minibars, freestanding baths, en-suite and outdoor showers, and shaded verandas elevated to take advantage of the magnificent bush views.

One of the five suites features a separate children's room with its own en-suite bathroom (including an outdoor shower). This area is divided from the main bedroom, providing parents (and children) with their own space. The Family Suite includes a children's en-suite bedroom — just like home, but better! The lodge welcomes guests of all ages.

Dining goes hand-in-hand with your safari experience and at Mbazo you are treated with a Gourmet Big Five Feast. Enjoy the Safari stop, breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and a dinner to remember. Dinner is completely elevated when coupled with top Cape Wines.

Mbazo Safari Lodge offers a space of healing. Situated in a tranquil hideaway surrounded by boundless greenery of the Pilanesberg Crater, this is the perfect base from which to rejuvenate your mind, body and, soul. Enjoy in-suite spa therapies where you can keep the doors open in perfect seclusion, enabling the soundtrack of birdsong to stream in. Enjoy a first-class safari with an experienced guide who boasts extensive knowledge about the Pilanesberg National Park. Explore the volcano that should've erupted, but didn't! The Pilanesberg Alkaline Ring Complex is a truly rare experience.

The Black Rhino Game Reserve is a private concession situated within the malaria-free greater Pilanesberg National Park (55 000ha).
