Hanglip Mountain Lodge Location Map

Less than 3 hours drive from Johannesburg, Entabeni Private Game Reserve is situated in the beautiful Waterberg region.

This 22,000 hectare malaria-free reserve boasts 5 eco-systems. The upper escarpment offers majestic craggy rock formations and wide-open grass plains, and is separated from the lower plateau by 600 metre high cliffs.

Encounter the supreme wildlife of Africa with qualified rangers, either driving on open safari game viewing vehicles or experience the adventure on foot.

The rangers often encounter lion on game drives, and the elephants that roam the reserve and make for awesome viewing. Rhino are very frequently encountered, and the ever elusive leopard can also be seen if you are lucky, and even a fleeting glance is a privilege and definitely a highlight of any safari.

There are also an amazing variety of birds on the reserve, with as many as 380 species in the summer months.

As well as game drives, guests can also enjoy scenic helicopter flights, hot air balloon flights, horse riding, quad-biking and sunset lake cruises.

The exclusive Hanglip Mountain Lodge has a main reception area with a private lounge and dining room as well as a swimming pool, boma and courtyard. Enchanting gardens provide a paradise of foliage and tranquility.

There is also a Wellness and Beauty Centre at the lodge, which offers a range of massages and beauty treatments.

Start TestimonialHanglip Mountain Lodge - great rooms, lovely staff - Issac our ranger was knowledgeable, interesting and found the animals for us. For a first safari experience I don't think it could be beaten.End Testimonial


Start TestimonialHanglip was AMAZING! Isaac our guide ensured each of our safari's was memorable. We saw every animal we anticipated and more! I even watched elephants walk past our chalet while i was taking a shower! Our chalets were beautiful, big, and the service staff were fantastic. We really liked the smaller number of chalets, and we were lucky enough to be the only guests for at least half of our stay! The location and outlook were perfect. Our only thought was that it would have been good to have some more activities available during the day...tennis/basketball/games room/fitness room...we are a very active family though! and we had teenagers! It did actually ensure we really relax though... The chef and kitchen staff were great, and the chef went to great lengths to make sure our vegetarian requirements were catered for. We did think maybe a buffet, or at least several meal choices would be an option that would allow guests to make their own selection and that it would reduce the amount of food wasted. We were extremely grateful for the chef's effort...he even packed us breakfast to eat on the way back to the airport. All the food was delicious, and the wine, and the service! ALL the staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, and went to every effort to make sure all our requests and wishes were met.End Testimonial
