The tent was spacious, clean and well-equipped. It was wonderful waking up in the morning with animals grazing close-by. We also enjoyed the swimming pools. Overall we had a lovely relaxing stay in the bush.

We enjoyed breakfast on the beautiful porch and had a perfect last day of our road trip through Botswana. The cottage is very tidy and the beds were really comfortable. The staff was really friendly and helpful.

Although it was difficult, at first, to get a hold of someone there, when I did, everything went perfectly and the service and facilities were awesome! Beautiful farm, fun facilities and just overall relaxation! Thank you!

The place is amazing from the surrounding nature, animals and the swimming pool. Not forgetting the cute squirrels that will eat your food if you don't pack them away properly. My family and I had the best weekend and surely going back soon. The owners go above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable. The foreman Joe took us on a feeding game drive, our toddler was soo happy to interact with some of the friendly animals closely.

The tent was very nice and the kitchen was well equipped. The hosts (Hendrik and Madrè) went above and beyond to meet our needs - they sorted out a problem caused by extremely heavy rain and gave us a bottle of wine and a self-grown watermelon as gifts. The free fire wood was also a plus. The tents are quite far apart so as to provide privacy and a feeling of seclusion amongst the other guests. The tents, lodges and campsite were fully booked, yet it felt like there were only a few guests on the reserve. There is quite a nice array of wildlife and some even came quite close to the tents. Some game can be spotted during private game drives, but Hendrik showed as a lot more in neighbouring camps during an actual game drive. We will definitely visit again.

We really enjoyed the quite and tranquility of our stay at Limpopo Bushveld Retreat, we loved sitting at the fire and enjoy the night sounds. Our days was relaxing, we took walks to see the buffalo's and other animals.

The overall experience was good. This is surely a retreat where you distance yourself from the rat race. Minimum people and limited cell phone reception. It was very relaxing. We enjoyed the wild non-invasive animals among us. They are well fed and in a great condition. After the winter there are some maintenance to be done to some of the facilities.
