02 Aug Bushveld Accommodation and Lodge
Convenient Bushveld Accommodation and a 5-Star Game Lodge in Limpopo
With the rand hovering around record low levels, the option of an overseas vacation is no longer within reach of many South Africans. On the other hand, these same meagre exchange rates have served to make this country an exceptionally attractive destination for foreign visitors, and a welcome source of hard currency for the local tourism industry. Together, these circumstances have contributed to a growing number of both locals and visitors who wish to experience the local beauty and, in turn, there has been an increased demand for bushveld accommodation, such as campsites and game lodges.
Exotic flora and fauna are to be found in abundance throughout most of South Africa, but few regions are able to match the numbers and diversity of these that are typical of the northernmost part of the country. The adjacent provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga are particularly well blessed in this respect and together, they form the site of the world-famous Kruger National Park. Along with its many other lesser but, nevertheless, substantial game reserves, Limpopo boasts a number of additional attractions that have made it a favoured choice, not just for wildlife lovers, but also for those in search of their cultural roots or seeking a destination that strives to promote the principles of eco-tourism.
Many of those who visit Limpopo tend to make a beeline for the Waterberg Plateau, and more often than not, they are hoping to find suitable bushveld accommodation either in or at least, fairly close to the sprawling Welgevonden Game Reserve. While some may be content to spend their nights under canvas, there are many more that prefer to relax in the comfort of a luxury game lodge when darkness falls.
Noted for its natural beauty and overlooked by the magnificent Waterberg Mountain Range, the reserve covers 35 thousand hectares and is home to more than 50 species of mammals, including each of Africa’s famed Big Five. The appeal for birdwatchers is certainly no less, given that the park also hosts more than 300 raptor species, including a breeding colony of rare blue cranes.
To enjoy these and the many other wonders of the plateau, we offer a haven of peace and tranquillity with luxury bushveld accommodation in the form of a comfortable and exceptionally well-appointed game lodge. No expense has been spared when choosing fittings and furnishings, and in addition to the king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms, study desk and comfortable armchairs, each of the 5 spacious suites has its own private patio, providing an unobstructed view of the reserve beyond and a perfect place to relax with a sundowner under the African sky.
