Limpokwena Nature Reserve
Private Safari Accommodation in Alldays, Limpopo
Limpokwena Nature Reserve is committed to preserving 2,400 hectares of the South African bush where the Limpopo and Mogalakwena Rivers converge. An oasis set on the South African side of the Botswana border, open to the Thuli Block. We consider the fauna and flora as our partners and guides rather than as our assets – elephants, giraffes, leopards, and antelope come and go with the same sense of freedom that we aim to provide to our guests. A vast expanse to explore and the natural beauty of Limpopo Province will soothe your woes and reinvigorate your senses.
The prime location for such an extraordinarily diverse landscape, that has in the past been through various landowners, means that the reserve is under various processes of recovery and rewilding. Being the most recent guardians of this land, our main focus is eco-tourism and conservation. Limpokwena Nature Reserve has been reclaimed for a flourishing population of biodiverse species that were originally endemic to the area. Our environmental philosophy is to let the land manage itself.
The Lodge at Limpokwena is an intimate camp for a maximum of 16 guests, with 4 free-standing chalets and 1 private family-style cottage. The communal area consists of a fully-equipped kitchen, lounge and dining area, as well a pool for the warm summer days.
Enjoy a relaxing stay with us
We have an array of safari experiences to give you a true feel for South African Bushveld living.
guided game drive
Explore Limpokwena Nature Reserve with a trained and qualified field guide on our game drives. You will be stunned by the transforming scenery.
For the avid birders, our proximity to Botswana and our location at the meeting of two rivers brings a myriad of over 300 species to us including the secretive Pel’s Fishing Owl.
Guided Bush Walks
There is nothing like encountering game on foot without the disturbance of a vehicle. We will spend time on tracks and signs as well as a bit of birding.
WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY
Again thanks for the weekends camping. We had a pair of Black Eagles entertaining us and the Fish Eagles were my wife's favourite.
The birdlife next to the river is outstanding!
Regarding the camp site itself PLEASE DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING!! From the road to the site, the site itself and the setup there are NO faults or ANY complaints to be made!! And there were a lot of game around camp and to be heard.
Well done on the planning and setup of the site on the island. Powerpoints, kitchen and abolition facility is 100%. Couldn't ask for more.
We visit Gonarezhou in Zimbabwe on a regular basis and this is the closest we have found to Gonarezhou in RSA, so well done. Limpokwena will definitely see us again!”

We stayed for 2 nights with the kids in the family cottage - which was wonderfull. The camp with it swimming pool is highly recommended. We enjoyed the game drives and especially wonderful Riley's detailed knowledge of the the bush. a great place to calm down and take in nature.

Big thank you to Riley & Syanne for the excellent few days at Limpokwena. Accommodation clean, comfortable and serviced daily. Make sure you stock up on food and drink before arriving. The communal kitchen, dining room, lounge are big and clean with an outdoors fire place for your bbq. There are more than enough space in the fridge/ freezers provided for all your food and drink. Riley is very knowledgeable and will make every game drive an experience. Camp located in the remote bush. Take your time and enjoy the experience. If nature and quiet spaces (limited internet no 3G) are not for you the reserve will not be an enjoyable experience.
Werner - Dublin, Ireland, October 2018
Hot temperatures, dry air and the warmest welcome we ever had in the bush.
Comfortable chalet, braai ready to use, great drives and a very fresh and nice pool.
Thank to our guests, we really enjoyed the accommodation, the chats with you and the staff and overall the peaceful atmosphere. Great place to discover!
