Experience Golf in Private Luxury

A scant two-and-a-half hours from Johannesburg lies an undiscovered corner of heaven. A private place set in indigenous bushveld surrounded by rolling hills, where the loudest sounds are the soothing tones of bountiful birds. The hustle and bustle of city life is a million miles away.

A place where your only decisions are to play nine or 18 holes on your own private golf course in the bush, which mountain bike trail to take, whether to fish or kayak the sparkling lake, when to take a game drive and what to have for sundowners.

A place of refined luxury where you can bring a group of family and friends, knowing your every wish is catered for.

It’s called Babirwa Game Ranch and nothing comes close.
