Situated in Limpopo Province above the eastern escarpment of the malaria-free Waterberg Mountains, approximately one hour's drive eastwards from Horizon Horseback Adventures, the 11,000 hectare Entabeni Game Reserve offers a beautiful setting for those seeking incredible scenery, luxurious facilities and rich game life. Meaning "the place of the mountain", Entabeni's plains are dominated by the mountain towering above Ravineside lodge. Below on the plains, rhino, buffalo, elephant, wildebeest, blesbok and other antelope roam peacefully.
Facilities and features at Entabeni include thrilling helicopter rides along the edge of the Waterberg escarpment, horse riding across the plains, guided game drives, wild walks and â€“ at the end of the day â€“ the opportunity to unwind in the beauty spa, restaurant or bar.
Entabeni features a variety of different biomes and landscapes. The reserve's rangers can inform you about the flora and fauna abundant at Entabeni, from the smallest insects and plants right through to the Big Five.
A riding safari expedition with Horizon Horseback adventures at Entabeni will take you into parts of the reserve inaccessible to jeeps. The reserve's horses are ideally suited to the hilly terrain and you will have the opportunity to track elephant, buffalo and rhino. Sightings of leopard and lion are also a possibility. Here you will have the chance to get closer than you may ever have imagined possible to some of Africa's most exciting and elusive wildlife. Rides can range in length from one hour to a full day, and cater for novices through to advanced riders. We recommend intermediate and advanced riders consider a minimum four-hour ride in order to take in all that this extensive reserve has to offer. Rides can take you high up into the mountains where 4x4 jeeps cannot reach, and right across the plains in search of blue wildebeest, eland, gemsbok, hartebeest, zebra and giraffe. Day visitors can undertake a three-or four-hour ride before enjoying a sumptuous three-course lunch at the Ravineside restaurant.
Entabeni's Ravineside and Lakeside lodges offer top quality, relaxed and private accommodation and facilities, including exquisite food and glorious surroundings.
