The lodge at Limpokwena is situated in an oasis of Fever Trees, Sausage Trees and the ever present Mopane Trees. With the Magalakwena River flowing in front of the lodge, with it comes an abundance of bird life that can be seen by simply taking a short stroll through the camp grounds. Limpokwena has over 350 recorded bird species which would keep any keen birder occupied for hours. Along with the colourful array of bird species such as Pels Fishing owl and Open-billed Storks, another regular sighting from the banks of the river is a number of Nile Crocodiles that spend their days sun tanning on the shores.
The grounds surrounding the lodge are well maintained with frequent visits from a variety of antelope species who can’t resist the lush lawns. The lodge dam is also popular with the animals during the winter months, with Eland, Giraffe, Hyena and Elephant coming to quench their thirst.
The reserve borders Botswana on the northern side, with only the impressive Limpopo River dividing the borders between Limpokwena and the wilds of Botswana. From a vantage point on the mountains, it is possible to look Botswana’s Thuli Block, which emphasizes the vast spaces and natural wilderness.
Our Lodge is best suited for family groups looking to get away for a while and regroup, or couples wanting to spend some quality time together in a tranquil and relaxing environment. The Lodge is comfortable and family orientated and we pride ourselves on simplicity and appreciating the wilderness from a new perspective.
