Escape the citySomabula Giraffe

The perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Nestled peacefully in a valley surrounded by game and an abundance of birdlife, Somabula Nature Reserve offers the perfect environment in which to unwind.

Ideally situated for weekend getaways, only one hour from Johannesburg and 40 minutes from Pretoria. We have 400 hectares of indigenous trees, pristine bush and excellent birding. The reserve boasts a wide variety of antelope as well as giraffe, zebra and wildebeest. Smaller animals, interesting insects and reptiles can also be viewed.

Somabula offers self-catering chalets, a lovely shaded camping ground and accommodation in beautifully restored ox-wagons. Day visitors can arrange to make use of the Lapa with its braai area.
