After a long 7hr drive from Gaborone we arrived at the reception around 5pm, met a lady there who was not expecting us and told us that there was no booking under our name for the bush camp even though we had prepaid and received confirmation the day before. She then proceeded to call her manager and quite hilariously although unprofessionally dished out a piece of her mind to the manager who had obviously messed up. Because it was late and the bush camp hadn't been prepared for us, her only option was to send us down to the lodge for the night and she said it would have to be sorted the next day. We thanked her and took a slow drive to the lodge, met some friendly staff who were quickly making up our rooms. The lodge accommodation and kitchen is simple and straight forward, nothing too amazing. We quickly prepared our dinner and sat around the camp fire, unfortunately missing sundown with the delays. The highlight of the trip were the elephants that swam across the river to the opposite shore of our room to munch on the vegetation on the other side, and waking up all the baboons in the trees in the process. We also had a visit from a very friendly young Genet that had obviously been fed by previous guests as he waited patiently for something to eat and was almost tame. We don't feed wild animals period, so he went hungry - Next morning we moved across to the bush camp, where we wanted to be originally as our friends were camping in the campsite. We had a nice braai that evening, but did not sleep at all due to the ferocious mosquitoes that plagued us the whole night, even though we drenched ourselves in Peaceful Sleep they were relentless.
Suggestions for management:
1. Improve your communication to your staff - there seems to be a breakdown, as they told us the booking problem happens all the time and in fact it happened again on the same weekend we were there with someone else.
2. Invest in some mosquito nets for the Bush camp - they not expensive.
3. Clear some of the underbrush between the rooms and the river, it would greatly improve the view.
4. Make a few signs discouraging the feeding of animals.
5. Fix the creaky bed at the bush camp
To be totally honest I doubt we will be returning to Limpopo River Lodge, maybe my expectation was too high, but I left disappointed. We will try other facilities in the area to compare, who knows maybe it will turn out to be the best in the bunch.
Note to travelers, avoid the A1 road on Sundays! You've been warned!

Response from Judi G, Bookings at Limpopo River Lodge
Responded 22 Jun 2019
Good Morning, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Limpopo River Lodge - all feedback is valuable to us in order to improve our offering. We apologise for you having to bear witness to the interaction with the reception staff and this will not happen again. The genets are wild but seem to habituate quite easily to lodges - I have personally seen three at a time in the outdoor kitchens just sitting on the walls or in the trees near the braais. I have also witnessed them hunting rats which they are masters at so fortunately they are not reliant on being fed at all. We will discreetly discourage guests from feeding them. We do hope that you will reconsider visiting Limpopo River Lodge - it is a magnificent Reserve with great wildlife viewings - only this week guests have seen wild dog, lion, leopard and all the plains game which calls this part of the world their home. Thank you for visiting us and let's make sure you come back for another visit. Best Regards Limpopo River Lodge

A friend recommended this place and we stayed one night on our way from South Africa to Tanzania. Its was magical. As we were driving into the road after we checked in a big leopard was drinking at the waterhole!!!! We arrived at the site and the bungalow was clean and comfy. The swimming pool was lovely and refreshing!!! We were the only ones there that night so it was peaceful. Had sundowners watching the sunset and it was amazing!!! Hot showers and the fan in the room was welcome. The fridge and freezer was very handy as we could freeze and keep supplies for our onward journey. Thank goodness we were told to bring our own supplies as there is nothing there. Everything else like cuttlery and pans and plates were plentiful.
Would revisit and stay for a few days.

This is camping with a difference! A charming camp kitted out with everything one could need in the kitchen including a fridge, cooker and bar - all pots & pans, crockery and cutlery provided so no need to bring tons of equipment, just your own food and drink.

A BBQ and a fire pit surrounded by chairs are situated in a clearing between the bedroom cottages, stocked with a stack of wood for burning so the only work you have to do is light the BBQ and cook your meal then sit and watch the stars or see if you can spot anything in the river or on the riverbank. The staff wash up for you in the morning and make your bed. Talk about being cosseted!

Comfortably furnished twin bedded room (extra blankets supplied for the chillier winter months) and a separate open-air bathroom thoughtfully plumbed with hot water - both have a great view of the riverbank.

Delightful place with the opportunity to walk along the river bank to spot the wildlife.

A lovely quiet place for a few days or even just an overnight stay. /a well equipped basic kitchen and very comfortable bedroom and bathroom. Really no complaints and the position is lovely. Individual rooms are nice and private.
