Qwabi Private Game Reserve: Family Adventures in the Waterberg Wilderness


Looking for a magnificent getaway for you and your family? then Qwabi Private Game Reserve is just the place! QWABI – “African Wild Cat” in the local Sesotho language – stretches across 11 000 hectares of Waterberg Big Five wilderness, a region proclaimed as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve for its incredible ecological diversity. 


Unwind In The Heart Of Nature

Here, in the heart of the reserve, situated in a peaceful spot overlooking a wide riverbed, lies LETAMO. 58 well-appointed rooms and suites are dotted across an expansive lawn which leads down to the main lodge area and pool deck.

This is a wonderful spot to kick back, relax and take in the sights and sounds of the birds, monkeys, warthog and buck that frequent the nearby watering hole. If you are lucky, you may spot some thirsty lions lapping at the water’s edge or a family of elephants slurping water through their tubular trunks.

A paradise for adults as well as children, LETAMO offers a variety of accommodation options to choose from. Families have the option of interleading Deluxe and Premium Rooms.

Alternatively, they can upgrade to one of LETAMO’s lavish Luxury Suites which boast private plunge pools and outdoor showers.


Kids’ Clubhouse

The lodge’s dedicated kids’ clubhouse allows children to peer through the lens of a microscope at insects, seed pods, dung balls and weaver’s nests on display.

There’s a jungle gym, a kid’s pool and even a paddle court to try out during the hours when families aren’t out on one of the lodge’s inclusive twice daily game drives.  

Book Your Family Bush Adventure

LETAMO’s family-fun safari package starts from R8 985 per night for 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 16 sharing. This offer includes accommodation, two game drives daily and access to the Junior Conservationist Kids’ Club.
