ATKV Klein-Kariba Holiday Resort

You can’t visit South Africa without spending time in the bush, and one of the most beautiful areas to visit is the magnificent Waterberg region, an oasis just 90 minutes from Johannesburg outside beautiful Bela Bela. The resort offers wall-to-wall fun and activities, and game drives to explore the rich flora and fauna of the region.
