Mokaikai is a special place where you can truly experience the wild beauty of nature by simply relaxing on the patio of your own private game lodge. Drive through the bush with your guests in your own game drive vehicle viewing wild animals and birds up close with no-one urging you to move on. Spend time identifying the myriad of trees and grasses while walking on your own private trails in Mokaikai.

Mokaikai Game Reserve - Mokaikai   is a uniquely structured project designed to bring ownership of your own secure, professionally managed, private game reserve - consisting of more than 10 000 hectares with R10 million worth of game to those of you who have often dreamed of owning your own farm but where traditional methods of game farm ownership have restricted this goal to remain as just a dream.

The Mokaikai ownership option now brings this dream to reality by drastically reducing the cost of effectively owning your own game farm, and allows you the freedom to just arrive and be able to relax in the vast outdoors and when your stay is over you can simply "lock up and go".
The unique Mokaikai development is limited to 37 freehold sites - of 1 hectare each (100m x 100m), strategically situated around a hill overlooking great bushveld plains and the Blue Waterberg Mountains and on which you can build your own dream game lodge.
Ownership of your investment may be registered in your private or company name, or in the name of a syndication, close corporation or trust.

The management of The Greater Mabula Game Reserve is done on a pro-active basis with much rehabilitation of flora, fauna and birds being undertaken: ground hornbill, redbilled oxpecker, vulture restaurant, serval cats, free roaming lion, elephant and sickle bush clearing.
More than 50 species of wild animals, 300 species of birds and more than 50 species of trees may be found on the reserve. Broadly speaking the reserve is divided into: open veld, tree savannah, mountain veld, open savannah, wet grasslands, mountainous rock and old fields.

Owners are required to pass the prescribed game rangers course which entitles them to use all the roads of The Greater Mabula Game Reserve.  Approved game viewing vehicles remain on the reserve and form part of the infrastructure when building your own lodge. Private vehicles are only permitted on the main roads between camps and the gate and the lodge.
Extensive walking trails, available to Mokaikai owners only, are situated on the mountainous areas of the reserve where you seldom come into contact with game. No hunting or commercial activities are allowed save for the owner of the Mabula Lodge, who owns all commercial rights.


This Lodge is a large 340 m² thatch roof building. It consists of an open plan kitchen with lounge area overlooking the wooden veranda. 
There are three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms as well as a guest toilet.
The lodge has a swimming pool as well las a carport for two vehicles.

The Greater Mabula Game Reserve - of which Mokaikai makes up nearly 25% - is a mature, professionally managed wilderness area of more than 10 000 hectares.  The abundant and varied game, birds, trees and grasses on the reserve make it one of the most sought after anywhere in the region. Limiting the reserve roads to recognized game drive vehicles, has further enhanced the wilderness experience and lessened the human impact on nature.
