Experience Nature Like Never Before
Amazing Activities Offered at Private Lodges in Limpopo
The Limpopo Province is well-known for its many private game lodges offering everything from tented camps to luxury en-suite lodge accommodation. However, for people who are not used to regular weekend breakaway times at such private lodges in Limpopo, private game lodges are the same as going on self-drive game reserve drives and stays.
Nothing is further from the truth, especially if you compare staying in luxury private lodges in Limpopo, where your specific safari, culinary, and activity needs are met. Below are some of the activities you can enjoy at such private lodges in the Limpopo Province. Though many of the activities are also offered in national game reserves in other provinces of South Africa, not many such game reserves can boast the five-star opulence of these private lodges.
Visiting Archaeological Sites
Many of the private lodges in Limpopo are located in areas that are rich in history. Ancient rock paintings on cave walls provide glimpses into the human settlement history of Africa. These drawings often depict the lives of the hunter-gatherer and Koi people of the past. In addition, bead making and rain controlling sites of a Bantu civilisation of old can be visited.
The well-known Witkop archaeological site is also worth the visit. It is the site where the Boer “bittereinders” used a small hill to hide from the British forces for almost 24 months during the Anglo-Boer war.
Experiencing Bush Picnics
In most national game reserves, visitors are urged to stay in their vehicles, and for good reason. Predators lurk and humans are still prey. Bush picnics are certainly not recommended, unless at allotted sites where specific safety measures are in place. With private lodges in Limpopo, visitors can also enjoy sunset and break of dawn picnics at various spots in safety. Private game ranger teams provide for adequate guidance and safety to ensure unique bush picnic experiences for the guests.
True, such walks are also offered in national game reserves and are well worth undertaking regardless of the location of the reserve. However, guests of our private lodge also get to experience such walks, bringing them close to animals they may never have seen had they only visited the conservation area by vehicle.
Open Vehicle Safari Drives
Instead of self-drive trips through national game reserves, guests at private lodges in Limpopo have opportunities to explore the area in true safari style on specially designed game vehicles. There is no window between the observer and the surrounds. Elevated seats provide for more viewing capacity, and the driver is normally also an expert on the bush and animals of the area. Such drives are at the heart of the lodge safari experiences and are truly something unique.
Early evening open vehicle game drives are not something visitors to national game reserves can experience, unless by special arrangement. However, the private lodges in Limpopo normally offer such as part of their packages. These night drives are exciting, as many of the nocturnal animals are never seen during daytime outings.
Luxury Spa Treatments
Offered only by the most exclusive five-star private lodges in Limpopo, such spa treatments are provided in luxury settings. Personal attention, unique products, and a tranquil environment set in the middle of the African bush set the perfect ambience for complete mind, soul, and body rejuvenation.
Extraordinary Culinary Experiences
Boma cuisine dinners under the star-studded African sky, breakfasts on the lodge decks, and even private dinner settings are offered at these lodges.
We are amongst the private lodges in Limpopo offering the above and many more activities. As such, if you are looking for a unique safari experience, then book your accommodation at our lodge.
