Limpopo-Lipadi Safari Inspiration

As a gentle guideline, suggestion or inspiration, please find below some ideas of what a stay at Limpopo-Lipadi could comprise. Please note that we will go out of our way to organise your stay with your personalised wishes in mind in order to ensure a memorable time with us.

Day 1

If flying in we will meet you upon arrival at our international airstrip, or at the lodge reception if self-driving to the Reserve. We will then accompany you to our main area for refreshments and a briefing by the lodge managers.

At 16:00 you will embark on your first game drive into the diverse bushveld of Limpopo-Lipadi. Your first stop could be on one of our many “koppies” on the Reserve for sundowner drinks to take in the magnificent vistas.

You will arrive back at camp around 19:30 to freshen up and join us for a sumptuous dinner at the main common area. Here you will also get the opportunity to meet up with your fellow safari companions.


Day 2

Wake up at 06:00 with tea/coffee and a rusk.

Our guide will take you to the meeting point where you will get the opportunity to join our anti-poaching unit or track the wild dogs and don’t forget the amazing animal sightings on the way.

Your game drive will be followed by a bush brunch.

The guide will drive you back to the camp and the rest of the morning is yours to enjoy. You could decide to take a short walk to the hippo hide to watch the hippos, take on a spot of bird watching, or simply laze around the swimming pool on the banks of the Limpopo River.

Meet at the main area at 15:30 for a high tea and then head off into the Reserve for an afternoon game drive, followed by sundowner drinks at one of the many watering holes, followed by a leisurely drive back to camp.
