Come and relax in the tranquil surroundings of the luxurious, fully self-contained Mallard Cottage set in the beautiful, secure Waterberry Country Estate.
Watch the zebras, blesbok, impala and mongoose playing in the veld. Wake up to the call of the fish eagle and of some of the 160 plus species of birds.
With the big dam less than 100 m away you can spot the African Jakana, White Faced ducks, and lots of other water birds.

Mallard Cottage Accommodation

The Cottage has two beautifully appointed bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other has twin beds, all with crisp white linen on deep mattresses.

Both bedrooms have a sitting area and large bathrooms; each with its own shower and bath. Between the two bedrooms is the comfortably furnished lounge, open plan, fully equipped kitchen, complete with fridge / freezer, large gas stove, microwave oven, kettle, toaster and with Weber braai (barbeque).
Off the lounge is the covered patio where, on a sultry summer evening, you can relax enjoying a drink or a leisurely meal while watching the birdlife in your private area of the garden and around the dam. On a crisp winter evening snuggle up in the comfort of a log fire and watch full DSTV - PVR.

Hot Air Balloon Flights
Balloon flights take place in the very early morning before the earth heats up. The launch site is in the beautiful Sabie River Valley. Depending on the wind direction, the balloon may float over fruit orchards and bush, or forests and hills, some flights end in the next valley or the one beyond that.

Skyway Trails
Experience the freedom of gliding over one of the last remaining natural forested valleys along the Sabie River on Africa's longest aerial cable trail. The aerial cable trail takes you down into the valley basin, stopping along the way on a number of elevated platforms to admire the natural vegetation, birdlife and the views of the forest floor below.

Elephant-Back Safari
There is something magical about swaying through the African bush on the back of an elephant. The 12 fully trained African elephants arrived at Kapama Private Game Reserve in early 2002, after being relocated from Zimbabwe, where their safety was in jeopardy.

Quad Biking
Experience the excitement of quad bike trails in the scenic riverine area in and around the Sabie River Valley and the bushveld surrounding the Kruger National Park.
