About Us

Village d’Afrique is a privately owned, intimate, luxury tented camp, situated within the Shakila game farm.

The design and execution of the lodge, is such that maximum use of the surroundings and the beautiful views were considered, with minimum disturbance to the rich fauna and flora in the building thereof.


Luxury tents were specifically chosen as the preferred lodgings, in order to enhance the bushveld experience.

A kind of indoor-outdoor experience is what we wanted to achieve, and we are proud of what is on offer. In the communal lapa, all the amenities needed for self catering are available, from Bar Fridge, all the way through to the ice maker, TV with DSTV and all channels.


This is a great place for you to relax and recharge your mind,

body and soul.

The central rim flow pool, with its Rhodesian Teak decks, along with loungers and firepit/braai area situated on the edge of the valley, offer a commanding view and a beautiful vantage point for sharing sundowners with the rest of your party.


Village d'Afrique is a mere 1 hour 45 min drive from Johannesburg, in the malaria free Waterberg. There is an abundance of things to explore in the area, should you be of the adventurous type. We believe, however, that this is the place to relax, spend quality time with family and friends and simply recharge.


Please enjoy your stay with us.

About the Waterberg

The Waterberg district of Limpopo is a true natural wonder. It features ancient mountains, a rich tapestry of biodiversity, thousands-year-old rock art and a site of critical archaeological and paleontological importance. Its rolling savannahs also make it a popular safari destination, where large herds of wildlife can be seen.

The Waterberg district offers a fantastic tourism experience that combines some of South Africa’s best features.

Mountains, game viewing and exploring a captivating pre-historic past, are just some of the Waterberg’s attractions. A major Waterberg drawcard is the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere Reserve.


It is the only savannah biosphere reserve in southern Africa and features a mix of rock formations, formed over millions of years, significant San (Bushmen) rock art sites and abundant bushveld plains that support a diverse array of fauna and flora.


The Waterberg district is renowned for its spectacular views, which are most evident within the sprawling biosphere reserve. Its pristine bush environment has also precipitated the rise of eco-tourism in this area.

There are now a number of game reserves that offer authentic safari experiences, including Big Five game viewing. Make sure you visit Mokopane and book a guided tour of the valley and its intricate network of caves, which have been declared a national monument.


Other outdoor pursuits that can be enjoyed in the Waterberg, include bird watching at the exquisite Nyl floodplain in the Nylsvley Nature Reserve at Modimolle and hiking at Mookgophong.

The Waterberg is also known for its hot mineral springs - many of its towns actually developed around these natural phenomena, which can still be enjoyed today at Bela-Bela and Mookgophong.
