Experience Nature Like Never Before
Game Reserves in Limpopo – Three Amazing Activities to Enjoy
The location of the province, its outstretched expanses of bush, and abundance of wildlife and bird species are among the reasons for the many stunning game reserves in Limpopo. Indeed, the province is a haven for eco-tourism activities.
With the distinctive bushveld character and rural settings, the Limpopo province provides for vast stretches of land, untouched by economic development. Indeed, few places in the inland of South Africa can compete with such perfect settings, filled to the brim with unique fauna and flora.
Zwahili Private Game Lodge and Spa ranks amongst the top and sought-after game reserves in Limpopo, and for good reason. Below are some of the unique features and activities offered, setting the lodge apart from many other eco-destinations in the country.
Set in Limpopo with its mosaic of cultures and rich history of ancient people, the lodge and spa offers more than opulent accommodation. It provides a haven for those wanting exclusivity whilst enjoying true African safari experiences. Located a few kilometres outside Modimolle, the lodge provides for a culture-rich experience. As a top-rated five-star hotel, it is one of the preferred destinations for discerning eco-travellers to South Africa.
Wildlife Safaris and Bird Watching – Guided Walks
The extensive range of animal, plant, and bird species is what attracts so many people to the game reserves in Limpopo, but what if you can participate in guided walks through the middle of the African bush? A true safari should include at least one bush picnic or walking experience. With experienced and qualified guides to bring you close to rare birds and smaller animal species, it is truly an unforgettable experience. No other sounds than your footsteps, breathing, a slight breeze, and the bush sounds fill the air. You have no distractions, and as such, can focus on the closeness to nature, only possible when you are immersed in a guided walk experience.
Expect to see animals from the African wild cat to the serval, caracal, and brown hyena on safari trips when you participate in wildlife safaris in Limpopo. Unlike many other game reserves where you can encounter lions on such guided walks, we provide you with the opportunity to see them at our Panthera Leo Gene Preservation Project. With the lions separate from the other wildlife, we are able to offer you afternoon sundowners in the bush and guided walks to Witkop.
With more than 400 African bird species also found in the area, you can rest assured that sightings, such as the lizard buzzard or the brown snake eagle can also be expected. In addition, our conservation area is in close proximity of the Nylsvley bird sanctuary, which should also be on the bucket list when you visit our lodge.
If you love history, anthropology, and the notion of being able to discover something ancient, then taking part in our excursions to caves in the area is a must. You will see Koi and Bantu paintings, and delight in the opportunity to stand at a rain-controlling site. Many bead sites and the remains of a Bantu city can also be visited.
Pantheological Gene Preservation Programme
Game reserves in Limpopo serve to preserve whilst giving visitors opportunities to come close to wildlife, bird, and plant species. We have made a commitment in 2002 to reintroduce as many of the original plant and mammal species found in the province as possible. This is why our gene protection programme includes the re-establishment of lions in the area. Book your accommodation at our lodge, and get the opportunity to participate in conservation efforts, guided walks, bird watching, safaris, and many more activities.
