Located deep in the Waterberg, a visit to Mackouwkuil Game Lodge and Conference Venue will revive your soul as you experience nature, comfort and of course, authentic first-class African hospitality.
Be prepared to embark on a life-altering journey when you enter the Mackouwkuil game reserve, with its dams, winding river and various game species. This hidden treasure is nestled deep inside the spectacular Waterberg biosphere in the Limpopo Province, and is approximately three hours’ north of Johannesburg.
With an abundant bird life in the area, this is the perfect spot for connecting with nature. Over 30 species of animal can be seen, from giraffe to hippo, and many varieties of buck are often spotted grazing on the grounds near the lodge.
The 1200-hectare property is situated in a malaria-free area and is an ideal destination for relaxing weekend getaways as well as conferences, brainstorming sessions, teambuilding sessions, company retreats, seminars and even family reunions. There’s no event too big or too small for the team at Mackouwkuil!
Having been identified by leading wedding planners as the ideal destination for wedding parties of 60 to 80 people, the venue lends itself perfectly with its rolling lawns and beautiful scenery. They also have an onsite chapel, as well as conference rooms which can comfortably accommodate up to 70 people. Half and full day conference packages are available at competitive rates and can be paired with accommodation packages to best allow for a truly affordable – not to mention picturesque – venue.
You can choose from luxury rooms, or even the tented camp which boasts incredible views out over the water. All rooms are furnished with elegant African wooden beds with superior linens, writing desks, comfortable occasional chairs, while striking photography of local wildlife adorns the walls.
Fully air-conditioned, with Wi-fi available throughout the lodge and conference centre, game drives can also be arranged as part of your package – allowing international visitors the chance to enjoy the South African bushveld as part of their conference experience.
Basic audio-visual equipment is included in the conference rooms, and any other technical requirements can be arranged with the team at Mackouwkuil, prior to your visit.
There is certainly a reason why everyone is talking about Mackouwkuil, and it’s clear to see why. See you in the bush, Hello Joburgers!
