Experience Nature Like Never Before
Many of us were looking forward to a bright new year filled with opportunities and success… only to have our expectations shattered. This turned out to be one of the most challenging years in recent history for the majority of us. Yet, we rolled up our sleeves and rose to the occasion. Now, after months of lockdown – which felt more like years, to be honest – things are starting to look a bit brighter again. And, while nothing is quite back to normal again, we can start living our lives again. To celebrate this, we’re inviting you to treat yourself to a spectacular bushveld picnic. Because after all of this, you deserve it.
What better way to escape the bustle of the city and the current challenges of everyday life than heading off into the bushveld and indulging in a delicious picnic with someone you care about? After months spending most of our time indoors at home, this is a welcome break from our newly acquired routine. Just picture it… the breathtaking views of the pristine countryside, majestic wildlife roaming just a couple of metres away, the crisp, fresh air, the warm African sun on your skin, and a delicious meal to tuck into while enjoying all of this.
This is exactly what you can expect when visiting Zwahili Private Game Lodge & Spa in Limpopo for one of our decadent bushveld picnics. We’ve taken the idea of a basic picnic and turned it into a stylish bushveld soirée. Our delectable picnics, which are conveniently packed in traditional African crates, include mouth-watering, freshly made roast chicken layered garden salad, yoghurt with berries and/or other fruit, freshly baked cornbread and flavoured ice-cold mineral water.
You also get to choose a magical picnic spot that is ideal for you. Tuck into the delicious food prepared for you by our chef in the cool shade of a majestic Marula tree close to our main lodge, or be transported to an ideal spot in the savannah where you can unwind with a view of the small plains and a nearby watering hole, while an array of birdlife serenades you in the background.
When you’re done savouring the great food and beautiful scenery of your private bushveld picnic, return to our lodge for even more relaxation. After all, it’s your escape and you enjoy all the luxury and pampering you can handle.
Each of our spacious rooms come with its own viewing deck and all the amenities you could need. The room booking also includes two game drives conducted by experienced guides in open safari vehicles, giving you the opportunity to view the majestic local wildlife in their natural habitat, ranging from the magnificent Kudu to caracals, African wild cats and possibly even the golden mole that is only found in this region.
Upon your return to the lodge, why not take your relaxation up another level by booking a rejuvenating treatment in our luxury spa? We have whatever you need to let go of that tension – from our Deluxe Royal Hot Stone Journey to soul surrendering full-body massages.
You’ll also be happy to know that we offer a much more extensive culinary safari than only our brilliant bushveld picnic. Our Head Chef conjures up the most incredible dishes inspired by African flavours and guided by Western culinary tradition. Or you can join us around our boma under the African sky, and enjoy a delicious meal next to a large campfire with the faint call of tribal drums in the distance…
It’s time you treat yourself. Join us for a wonderful bushveld picnic at Zwahili Private Game Lodge & Spa and stay for a couple of nights for an experience you’ll remember for years to come.
