About Us

We are an eco-friendly game lodge tucked away quietly in the stunning Northern Waterberg. Mbala values peace, tranquillity and privacy and is an LGBTQ+ friendly game lodge. The five classic suites and Bush Chalet at Mbala are all uniquely decorated and fully air-conditioned. Each suite has a large queen size bed and en suite bathroom/s.

The lodge consists of a guest lounge, dining and a boma area. Guests can relax in the incredible repurposed dam turned swimming pool and the jacuzzi on the raised deck, or take the time to unplug from the hustle of the big city because Mbala is about doing as little as possible, just take it easy and unwind!

Being a LGBTQ+ friendly game lodge is incredibly important to us, above all we pride ourselves on being a judgement free safe place for you and your partner to enjoy the incredible views and experiences we have to offer. 

For total seclusion our Matete Bush Chalet is the perfect romantic getaway with its own private Sala, open fire and unique bush jacuzzi with 360 views of the sunset and bushveld. A truly magical experience for you and your loved one. The Mbala wilderness boasts river, rocks and ridges, with spectacular views and plenty of wild life and an amazing variety of bird species. If you are looking for a serene bush escape then look no further than Mbala.

Guests can enjoy our wonderfully interactive and short courses available which includes making Kombucha, ferments or pickling that we make and use here at Mbala. Find out more under the Mbala Inspired Learning logo on our home page.
