We camped there over the long weekend and it really exceeded our expectations. Knowing that it did not fall within a nature reserve or national park, we expected good birding by the river but we did not expect to see the amount of game we saw. We saw elephants at each waterhole, plenty of plains game, wild dog tracks and great birding but the highlight must be hearing the resident leopard calling next to the river each evening. The campsites are very well kept and there was always hot water availible, even early morning. Will definately be back and recommend to others.

Morning Theo, Thank you very much for visiting us and for your review of our Reserve. We are delighted that you saw so much. Just after you left guests saw the wild dogs at Motswiri Pan - seven of them - so they are back on the Reserve. Thank you very much for the pictures of your cam trap - the leopard was incredible to see! Please do visit us again. Best Regards Limpopo River Lodge

A group of friends recently spent 3 days at the campsites of Limpopo River lodge. It was perfect! Camping on the unspoilt bank of the Limpopo river. Excellent birding. The campsites are shady under giant trees and right on the bank of the river. The ablution facilities are clean, modern and well kept. Isak saw to it that we never ran out of hot water. Some of the group stayed in the cabins so we had the kitchen available to us. It is well equipped with a gas stove and fridge. We will always think back with fondest memories to the calls of the fish eagle, the soothing sound of the river and the light of our campfires in this beautiful camp.

Morning Eben, Thank you so much for visiting us and reviewing our facilities. We are very proud of the experience we provide and get to share with guests in this special part of Botswana. There is nothing better than to get away from it all, have no comms and just absorb what nature offers. We hope to welcome you and your friends back in the future. Best Regards Limpopo River Lodge

We camped for 2 nights and found the campsites clean, ablutions were basic but clean and water was hot. Game viewing from our own vehicle yielded spectacular photos of elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, kudu and of course many other smaller buck like impala and duiker, many stunning birds including African fish eagle. Of course, a trip to the Limpopo would not b complete without a croc or two floating by and my highlight was a rather heated chat with a line hippo at 4am...all in all we really enjoyed the time close to nature..and far away from cell towers.

Morning Brett, Thank you for your review of our Reserve - much appreciated. Great news that you got good pictures of our creatures great and small. How lucky to have the hippo nearby - they are not always there but do put on a good show when they arrive. We are now starting to see the predators again and this last week guests saw wild dog,lion and leopard to add to the collection of sightings. Best Regards Limpopo River Lodge

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,

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

First time staying there and when we arrived we thought camp site was awesome, then around 4pm across the river a neighbor switched on a water jump we had to endure for the 4 days we where there almost 24/7. Maybe Limpopo river lodge can’t do anything about it but should inform there guests about it

Good Morning, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with Limpopo River Lodge. Point taken about the pump which, sadly, we are unable to control because it is used by a farmer on the SA side of the river. We do strive to only book this camp site if all others are full and will certainly take your advice and inform future guests of this issue. We hope that you enjoyed your stay otherwise and that you had some good game viewing. Best Regards Limpopo River Lodge
