Experience Nature Like Never Before
5 Essential Tips for the First Time Visitor to Game Reserves in Limpopo
The game reserves in Limpopo are filled to the brim with an array of wildlife species. True, the Big five are almost always on the bucket list, but considering the thousands of wildlife and bird species in Africa, a relaxing trip to one of the game reserves in Limpopo focused on the smaller animals can be an extremely rewarding experience.
Indeed, if you plan on a bush walk in one of the game reserves in Limpopo, it is better to book accommodation in an exclusive lodge offering safe bush walks in conservation areas that are free from the dangerous predators. This is especially true if you have never encountered dangerous predators outside the comfort of an enclosed vehicle. However, to help make your trip memorable, whether you are a lone traveller, family, or couple on honeymoon, let us look at a few essential tips for your trip to any of the game reserves in Limpopo.
Animals are well-camouflaged, and it is often difficult to spot them without using binoculars. Indeed, the binoculars are as important as having your camera at hand. If there is thus one piece of equipment to buy before visiting one of the game reserves in Limpopo, let it be a pair of binoculars.
If you have a cellphone equipped with a good quality camera, then yes, it will suffice. Just remember to switch it to silent mode when on bush walks or game drives. However, a good quality, smaller digital camera can be handy for those unexpected moments. Your friends may not believe you if you say that you have seen a particular animal doing something unusual. Photos are your evidence.
Though a camera is certainly useful, keep in mind that spotting animals and enjoying the experience from behind a lens is different from emerging your senses in the moment. If you are two or three people on the trip, take turns in handling the camera. This will give each of you the opportunity to take good pictures and time to simply enjoy the wildlife experiences.
Even while you are at the main lodge, remember you are in the bush where animals roam free. Although they are used to human voices in the distance, they are startled by loud noises, such as screaming or excessive laughter. The sound of a human voice travels far, especially at night. Keep your voice down on game drives and bush walks, as you want to see as many animals as possible. Lower noise emission means that you will be able to see more animals up close.
If it is your first safari trip, you may be tempted to see and do as many things as possible within the available period. Here is the secret to the best safari trips to game reserves in Limpopo – take it slow. Rather than travelling from one camp to another, book accommodation at an exclusive lodge, such as ours, where you can enjoy sunset drinks, dinners under the star-studded African sky, and relaxing afternoons on the deck. You want to have time for safari drives and bush walks.
At the same time, you want to enjoy every moment of the bush picnic or massage in the African spa. You want to linger around the fire and indulge in the cuisine. You cannot experience the best of safari if you keep hurrying to your next destination.
Let us treat you to the best-of-the-best offered by game reserves in Limpopo. Call to make a reservation at our lodge for an unforgettable luxury stay and safari experience.
