The Resort is based between two villages Verena and Dennilton. It’s about 25km from Verena and 33km from Dennilton.

The facilities of the resort are located within the Mabusa Nature Reserve. A strategic decision was taken to combine the two state-owned properties’ boundary fences. Zithabiseni then became a Resort located within the Mabusa Nature Reserve. The reserve is home to a variety of animals except the big five.
