This upmarket Pilanesberg destination offers all the mod cons to make your convention or corporate function a success, including customised team building sessions. The Reserve’s setting alongside an unspoilt water frontage, ensures loads of fun water-based activities, like canoeing, fishing, and barge cruises, while the daily game drives and guided bush walks provide ample opportunity to get up close and personal with the abundant bird- and wildlife that call the Reserve home. Finfoot Lake Reserve also gives visitors the chance to grab some downtime; enjoy a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear pool, unwind with a variety of treatments in the on-site spa, or engage in some friendly competition in the games room. Round off another awesome day in the bushveld by tucking into a delectable home-made meal with only the starlit African skies, the crackle of a roaring fire, and the friendly banter of your group mates or fellow delegates to break the silence. With space for up to 50 guests in its luxury thatched chalets and two upscale self-catering villa's which can accommodate up to eight and ten guests respectively, Finfoot Lake Reserve is the ideal location to host a memorable event, be it for business or pleasure.

Finfoot Lake Reserve lies within the greater Pilanesberg basin (a certified malaria-free game area), approximately 30 minutes’ drive from the main entrance of the Pilanesberg National Park, and just 90 minutes’ drive from Johannesburg.
