Experience the warm hospitality of Izintaba private game farm in the beautiful Waterberg bushveld
The reserve offers self-catering and catered accommodation in 6 luxury, fully equipped, self-catering thatched cottages, sleeping between 4 and 17 people. Located close to the small town of Vaalwater, the 1200 hectare malaria-free game farm is ideal for friend or family get-togethers and reunions, birthday parties and anniversaries, small conferences, intimate weddings, and romantic bush getaways.
With a variety of wildlife and habitats, stunning vistas, seasonal rivers, and waterfalls, Izintaba is the perfect destination for those who love the outdoors and the freedom to enjoy the bush at their own pace. Pack your mountain bikes, walking shoes, fishing rods, and binoculars for an activity-filled bush getaway, far from the stress of city life, or just bring a book and a bathing costume and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Waterberg bush.
What's on offer?
The six cottages are fully-equipped for self-catering purposes and luxuriously furnished. Each cottage has a patio with views over the bushveld and private lapas and braai areas for al fresco dining. All the cottages have indoor fireplaces.
Younger children will love the jungle gym, and children of all ages will enjoy the large swimming pool and pedal boat, and the opportunity to have an up-close-and-personal bush experience.
What is a holiday without the whole family? Your pets will love the freedom of the bush as much as you do. All of our cottages are pet friendly. And for those that require a little more peace of mind, Bushbuck, Zebra and Giraffe cottages are completely fenced.
Izintaba offers a diversity of habitats from open plains to rocky kloofs, to dams and seasonal rivers, .and so supports a wide variety of wildlife, with over 40 mammal species including an array of antelope and the elusive aardvark and bat -eared foxes. Guests are welcome to do their own game drives or join a guided game drive with an experienced ranger.
Izintaba supports a wide range of fauna and flora, and because we do not have any dangerous game, the best way to take it all in and enjoy the beautiful scenery is on foot.
A good network of farm roads and single track enable the cyclist to enjoy riding in the bush.
What our guests say

Izintaba is a fantastic place. What a surprise to find such a well managed and well equipped place in the bush. The peace and quiet is awesome and the night sky amazing. No pollution and great walks. We loved it here and having delicious food delivered to the cottage was a real treat. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Nikki and Andrew
My 3rd visit. Don't want to go. We have enjoyed the utter peace. A very special place!
We loved every minute of our stay at Izintaba! The cottage we stayed in was great, and everything is very clean. There is so much to do! We especially enjoyed riding with our bikes through the Reserve. We will certainly be back!
