For special occasions, there’s nothing more magical than dining under the stars at one of Mabula’s legendary bush dinners; the flickering lights, the sounds of the bush, traditional South African cuisine and great company combining to create a unique dining experience.

Choose from one of three special dining venues to make your event exceptional in every way. From traditional bush-themed evening dinners under a 100-year-old Wild Fig tree to weddings at the open-air Shaya Moya offering astounding views over the plain. Small or large, sophisticated or loud, Mabula Game Lodge will create a fuss-free bush event to exceed your expectations.

The Mabula Wildlife Centre is a veritable hive of activities offering such bush experiences as horse trails, quad biking, tennis, paintball, archery and even visits to the on-site Mabula Reptile Centre where visitors will learn how to avoid being bitten and come face to face with some exquisite species of local and exotic snakes, not to mention a very friendly Iguana.

Keen birders will enjoy the regular birding drives or walks, spotting such species as the Amur Falcon, Lilac-breasted Roller and Red-crested Korhaan, while guided walks provide the perfect setting in which to follow animal tracks, identify plants and insects and spot some of the area’s most beautiful birdlife.

Picnic breakfasts or afternoon bush barbecues including game drives can be arranged, as well as dam picnics and the Majuma Experience that takes visitors in to the lion section of Mabula Game Reserve at night to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat, and perhaps even witness a hunt.
