Pabala Private Nature Reserve

About the Accommodation

Pabala is a remarkable Private Nature Reserve that features three (3) eco-biomes, close to the Baviaans Mega Reserve (world heritage site) in the malaria-free Eastern Cape – within short driving distance from Nelson Mandela Bay, ADDO Elephant Park and the Garden Route. We are also only 5 minutes drive from the iconic Sarah Baartman Centre of Remembrance with the largest man-made sundial in Africa, standing 18 metres tall.

Pabala is located between Loerie and Hankey in the Gamtoos Valley (meaning ‘Roaring Lion’).

Hidden gem accommodations and authentic experiences complement the reserve as it includes Guided Game Drives; Craft Distilled Gin, Rum & Vodka with a twist of Wine & Cheese Tasting, a Birders Paradise with over 250 species identified in just 24hrs + getting up close with some life changing information about our pollinator – the all-important Honey Bee!

It is perfect for Schools, Groups, Couples’ Getaways and Families.

For an Authentic Conservation Bush Adventure, this haven is hard to beat.
