Nestling in the shadows of the Waterberg Mountains, near Bela-Bela (formerly Warmbaths), Itaga is located in the greater Mabalingwe Game Reserve – a Malaria free area of Limpopo Province and home to the ‘Big 5’. It takes less than 2 hours to reach Itaga from Johannesburg and one hour thirty minutes from Pretoria, travelling via the national Polokwane (formerly Pietersburg) road – one of the country’s finest highways.
Itaga has earned a proud reputation as an exclusive but affordable 5 Star lodging establishment offering 8 luxuriously appointed, air-conditioned / heated en-suite, African themed chalets. The rooms have private pergola covered patios and guests have a choice of either shower & bath, or shower only. Most rooms also feature a screened outdoor ‘bush shower’ for that exhilarating ‘Out of Africa’ experience!
The thatched central complex has a romantically appointed dining area; an intimate lounge with fireplace; a cocktail bar with viewing deck overlooking the floodlit waterhole; a cozy open-air bush boma; an all day complimentary tea & coffee station for the convenience of our guests; a DSTV loft lounge and library; a gift, curio and fashion goods boutique; a swimming pool with large sundeck, and a comfortable indoor / outdoor conference venue, catering for up to 16 corporate delegates. The ‘top deck’ offers stunning views across the plains and the quiet solitude of this private location makes it the perfect place to witness sensational sunsets, whilst savoring the moment with a sundowner cocktail.
For the safety of our guests (and the protection of our Marula trees from mischievous elephant), the area surrounding the camp is encircled by an electrified game fence.
