WABI Game Lodge - In the wild beauty of the Waterberg Plateau lays the ultimate place for individual travelers, who seek for peace and inspiration - WABI. Experience adventurous Africa at WABI Game Lodge. This privately owned game reserve, free of malaria, is nestled at the edge of a dry river bed, in which century old by law protected camelthorn trees are embedded.
The park surrounding the lodge is a verdant delight - one of the most beautiful gardens in the middle of nowhere. Above carefully-attended lawns the acacias are filled with the sounds of hornbills, touracos, babblers and glossing starling, while at their bases blue plumago, fuchsia, hibiscus, laurel roses and other colourful flowers are growing. Infact, a variety of over 230 bird species can be observed.
Nocturnal wildlife such as porcupine, springhare, genet cat and bush babies are living within this garden and during the day you can observe nyala antelopes sneaking through the bush thickets along the river bed still within the Wabi garden. A bougainvillea-laden arbour leads to the well equipped air-conditioned bungalows. It is difficult, indeed, to tear yourself away from the pool, which overlooks one of the waterholes, but then, why should you? After all you are on holiday.
Two cheetahs, veterans from their bush experience and not able to survive the hard life in the wilderness, are also roaming a two hectare enclosure, still wild at heart! The mountain area, namely the breathtaking and unique Waterberg Plateau invites for adventurous excursions by car or on foot: walk the grounds of the mighty white rhino.
The roads along the edge of the escarpment offer superb views of high, rocky peaks of red sandstone eroded into fantastical shapes and laced with the clinging vines of climbing figs. Of course a smooth glass of red wine or a fruity sip of a superb white wine, to make the most of a spectacular sight of the plateau at dusk or dawn, will not be missed.
