Lodges in Limpopo Specials

 

South Africa’s northernmost province, Limpopo, borders onto Mozambique, Botswana and Zimbabwe, making it the perfect gateway to explore more of southern Africa. The province is rich in wildlife, spectacular scenery and boasts a wealth of historical and cultural treasures. Named after the great Limpopo River that flows along its northern border, Limpopo offers a plethora of awe-inspiring landscape, a rich cultural heritage, an abundance of game reserves and wildlife species, as well as many nature-based tourism opportunities.
An area rich in wildlife, game reserves and wilderness, Limpopo is a perfect location for an African safari or city escape. The mountainous area of the Waterberg is also home to numerous Limpopo game reserves, and the province also hosts the northern section of the Kruger National Park – an area particularly renowned for its large herds of elephant and buffalo, numerous tsessebe and sable, and of course – abundant bird life! The province is also rich in important archaeological sites, world heritage sites, and ancient baobabs. The biggest Baobab in the world can be found in Limpopo; these trees are possibly more than 3 000 years old.
Winter is the best time of year to go on a safari as vegetation dies back, increasing visibility and low rainfall means animals tend to gather near water sources. The area is also a minimal-risk malaria area. The more popular parks – such as Kruger National Park – are best to avoid over school holidays and long-weekends. Thousands of South Africans flock to the park and adjacent reserves at these times, so it’s best to steer clear if you want peace and quiet.
Nature reserves and game lodges here are widespread in this area as well as backpackers and farm lodges; you’ll even find a choice of 5-star resorts. Find all our Limpopo accommodation specials below.
