Experience Nature Like Never Before
Lodges throughout the world offer accommodation, which is usually described by adding an adjective that may indicate the terrain in which the lodge is located or the activities for which they’re geared. The structure’s basic description also may indicate which levels of comfort and amenities are on offer.
One finds umpteen types of lodge references that show purpose or speciality – hunting, shooting, backpackers, skiing, hikers, fishing, boating, surfing, safari, wildlife, game, wilderness, beach, overnight, mountain and bushveld, to name a few. Nonetheless, “lodge” evokes a feeling of settling in.
Popular Bushveld Lodge Locations
In sunny South Africa, lodges are most closely associated with the bushveld and private game or nature reserves in peaceful, game-rich regions, including Mpumalanga, Limpopo and even KwaZulu-Natal, although the latter’s climate and vegetation are rather more humid and tropical.
South Africa is a large country, featuring vast tracts of sparsely populated or unpopulated rural terrain, which is great for the continued existence of indigenous fauna and flora. Limpopo is the 5th largest province, spanning some 125 754 km2, of which sizeable portions comprise natural bushveld, so it’s not surprising that the province features private game reserves with private wildlife lodges.
Because of location, by their very nature and multi-starred status, these establishments are typically upmarket, if not frankly luxurious. Our exclusive bushveld lodge in Limpopo, Zwahili Private Game Lodge & Spa, is a fine example of some of the best on offer – in Limpopo and elsewhere.
Internationally Recognised Grading
The Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, (TGCSA), is responsible for assessing, evaluating and awarding star grades to a whole gamut of accommodation-offering establishments throughout South Africa – one star being most modest and five stars right at the top, the height of luxury, comfort, discretion, exceptional personal guest service, gourmet cuisine and top-notch amenities.
This body has a comprehensive list of minimum standards and requirements which must be met or exceeded for each type of recognised accommodation throughout the hospitality industry.
For bushveld lodges in Limpopo and in other areas, the TGCSA even goes as far as stipulating scenic views, the quality and standard of linens and furnishings, the size and placement or mirrors, cuisine that meets international standards, and the diverse list goes on, and then some – understandably so.
Obviously, every guest-accommodating establishment strives for the highest possible grading, but complex grading criteria must be achieved to satisfy each level of the TGCSA’s requisites, since ratings serve as guidelines of what paying guests may expect upon arrival, especially after making “sight-unseen” reservations from afar.
