The Waterberg Mountains in the Northern Province lie just over three hours drive from Johannesburg, but are home to a wilderness region where a small number of private concession areas and guest farms operate.

Why visit Waterberg ?

This malaria-free region is the perfect place for bush walking, horse riding and 4×4 game drives with many species of antelope and plains game to be seen, as well as rhino and a huge number of birds and flora.

Ants Nest and Jembisa are private houses that are taken on a private and exclusive basis which make them ideally suited for families or private parties. These private concession areas generally do not have the big cats and other predators, which also makes them ideal areas for young families to explore the bush.
