Skebenga self catering house with absolutely everything you could possibly need including board games and reference books (flowers, trees, butterflies etc). Excellent cleaning/housekeeping option by competent and friendly staff. Also really delicious home cook meals, biscuits, bread & cakes delivered as & when we wanted them. The cyclists loved the mountain bike trails and were out there riding every day....

No worries here then...phoned Sam the owner which answered immediately at 04:15 in the morning, and was truly concerned as to the well being of his guests...THANK YOU!!. We...

Lindani is a fabulous getaway for anyone who enjoys the bush, solitude, animals and walking unguided in the wilderness. The cottages are very well-equipped, management is very friendly and they even do catering if one doesn't want to braai/self-cater. It's a unique and special place, we love it :)

We have been coming to Lindani for 12 years and they keep getting better and better. This time we were 2 Dads and 2 kids with MTB's, fishing rods, hiking boots and other fun stuff. We had a total blast. We ordered our food from the Lindani kitchen (it was superb) so we did not have to worry about cooking....

Maroela Cottage, with its own waterhole is an absolute delight. We enjoyed the animals of all kinds coming to drink, warthogs galore (with their babies), monkeys, baboons, giraffe, kudu, impala, zebra, bush buck... the list goes on. Birding was fantastic. We walked over 20km on the farm roads and saw a wide variety of game and birds. Words cannot describe...

My husband and I were blown away by Lindani in the Waterberg. We stayed in spacious Skebenga with some Danish friends (four adults, two children) – choosing the self-catering option, which I FAR prefer. Having stayed in many five-star Safari lodges around South Africa, I can honestly say Lindani was – by far – the best value for money. The...

We spent two days at Maroela Lodge as a family of four adults and loved every moment. After watching warthog and a troupe of mongoose, who visited the waterhole infront of our little cottage, we walked out across the reserve encountering zebra, wildebeeste, implala with young, kudu, red heartebeeste, waterbuck, eland, baboon, vert monkeys and blesbok.

We visited Lindani for the 20th time, and stayed at Skebenga. Once again we arrived at a very clean house, and everything worked. We caught some carp at the Skebenga Dam, just watch out for the crocodile!
