Authentic Africa in all its glory
Limpopo, the most Northern province in South Africa, shows you the real Africa in South Africa.
Amidst vast savannas with weaving grass lands and rugged mountains, the local population with their villages and customs, the nature reserves and game you find the Pearls of Limpopo. Beautiful lodges that introduce you to the enchanting beauty of this special part of South Africa.
The Pearls of Limpopo offer a combination of wildlife, culture, World Heritage and nature.
Kololo Game Reserve, Madi a Thavha Mountain Lodge and Leshiba Wilderness are Fair Trade in Tourism accredited.
The lodges share the view of social responsibility, developing human potential and capacity building in the local community, supporting the preservation of culture and heritage and the conservation of nature, wildlife and biodiversity. This is executed, among many other initiatives in programs such as Leshiba’s Centre of Indigenous Knowledge, Kololo’s cooperation with the Waterberg Welfare Society and Madi a Thavha’s Arts & Crafts Mentoring Programs.
“We have had a wonderful time. Such interesting and nice people. Everything so personal and pleasant. Service was excellent, food of course very good, game drives fantastic. For me personally most important the personal element. I don’t believe you will find that anywhere else anymore. So much to learn about nature, surroundings and culture. From people with passion!
Thank you for your good care; we will definitely recommend the Pearls of Limpopo to other people thinking about going to South Africa”
