The Lodge at a Glance
When it comes to a getaway in the bush, Mangwa Valley Game Lodge tries to make it a trip to remember. The swimming pool and deck provide a relaxing location from which to spend time spotting the more than 350 species of birdlife in the area. With the surroundings of Dinokeng Game Reserve, game drives are organised to give guests the chance to explore what’s considered the first free-roaming Big 5 game reserve next to an urbanized area.
For those seeking a little activity before or after their game drives, there are a wide variety to be enjoyed in the area including clay pigeon shooting, boat cruises, fishing, horse riding, hot air ballooning, microlight flights and wine tasting. Those looking for a little time to themselves can unwind in the reading room or take in a late lunch at the restaurant. Travellers can have an evening drink at the bar or perhaps indulge in some well deserved pampering at Zuri Spa. WiFi is available for tech-savvy guests who want to share their Big5 experience as it happens.

What to do in Gauteng
The smallest province in South Africa, Gauteng - Sesotho for "place of gold" – was built on a wealth of gold, accounting for 40% of the world's reserves. Home to the country’s largest city, as well as its administrative capital, the province is a diverse place, with cities compared to Los Angeles, with a similar urban sprawl as well as wide open spaces and an impressive network of malls, casinos, flea markets and suburban stores.
Home to a number of museums, including the Hector Pieterson Museum, Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill, Museum of Military History, Pretoria Art Museum and the Museum Africa, Gauteng is also home to the Cradle of Humankind, one of South Africa's eight Unesco World Heritage sites. The region of Sterkfontein, Swartkrans, Kromdraai also boast one of the world's richest concentrations of hominid fossils.
Johannesburg, Pretoria, Soweto, Cullinan and Magaliesburg all rank as Gauteng’s top attractions, offering a wide range of unique cultural experiences, Highveld grasslands and a number of game reserves.
