Client Feedback

  • Thank you more particularly for arranging my trip to nDzuti, at such short notice and against all the odds of stolen passport and therefore also no currency exchange! I did so appreciate the utter trust you placed in me when you paid for the entire trip yourself! I hope you did not have a sleepless night! In recommending nDzuti I think you interpreted my wishes exactly! The style of the place suited me perfectly and it was the most marvellous experience. The facilities, as you will have found, were fairly basic but quite adequate for a comfortable stay. Brett and Sherie were welcoming and hospitable. Sherie supplied plenty of nourishing food for breakfast, lunch and supper in a friendly, homely fashion. Brett was a great guide on our safari drives. The lodge was full for the first night, including a lively and talkative family group, but when they departed midday on Monday it was then calm and peaceful, with just a young couple and myself, and it was a real joy to be in the midst of the vastness of the bush with no other people within sight or sound! The wildlife, apart from fairly ubiquitous impala, was somewhat scarce (not that I have any measure of experience to go by!) but I liked the feeling that there was no guarantee of seeing game that was free to roam far and wide. Sometimes fleeting glimpses were all the more exciting for being so brief! We did get very good viewings as well! On the first evening we saw quite a wide range of wildlife, including a close-up of a very large rhino who was not in any hurry! On the way home in the dark we came across a lioness with two 6 week old cubs (what a great guide we had!). I was amazed how unperturbed she was by our presence and was moving in a very leisurely way, so we had extremely good viewing. Brett found them again the following evening, just as relaxed, with the cubs playing within yards of the landrover - fantastic! Talking of lions, that same evening, as we relaxed after supper, Brett heard a couple of lions roaring some distance away and said "Let's go and find them!" - so he did, and in the spotlight we saw two fine males unhurriedly patrolling their territory. Again they were totally unfazed by our presence, stopping for a scratch and a lie down. While the lights were turned off to conserve batteries, a roar from a far distant lion prompted a response from our two, and their roaring just a few yards from us in the darkness was a spine-tingling experience! We spent some time tracking a leopard which was stalking impala and which Brett was determined to find, but we had to be content with leopard tracks! Elephant were unusually elusive and it was only on the final morning that Brett located a fine 25 year old male after hearing a solitary trumpet from across the river, so I did see all the big five except the leopard. Together with sightings of many other mammals, birds and reptiles as well as the bush, the scenery and stunning panoramic views it was a wonderful and memorable safari trip! Some people might want slightly more sophisticated accommodation and cuisine but the style of nDzuti in the hands of Brett and Sherie suited me very well. With many thanks for your excellent arrangements of my safari trip, best wishes, Gervase.

Limpopo is the Northern most Province of South Africa and takes it’s name from the Limpopo River that forms the boundary between South Africa and Zimbabwe to the north. The Limpopo River was imortalised by Rudyard Kipling’s tale of the “Great grey greasy Limpopo River all set about with fever trees.” The Great North is a land of legends, home to the Rain Queen and the mystical Venda people as well as the ancient Kingdom of Mapungubwe. Limpopo is home to a large chunk of The Kruger National Park and what is now The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park that links Kruger National Park with Mozambique and Zimbabwe.  It is rich in natural beauty, with majestic mountain ranges and dramatic landscapes. The vegetation is of the  savannah biome known as the Bushveld and has some noteworthy components such as the enormous Baobabs, forests of Lebombo Iron woods and the beautiful fever tree-once  thought by the pioneers to be responsible for malaria!
Limpopo enjoys a summer rainfall and although it is generally a fairly dry province it has many lush pockets and the northern and eastern areas are subtropical with hot and humid summers.  Limpopo Province contains much of the UNESCO proclaimed Waterberg Biosphere as well as The Kruger to Canyon Biosphere Reserve.
The history of Limpopo is the stuff of story books, in the past, due to the remote and inhospitable nature of the hot, fever ridden Limpopo Province, the area attracted many fugitives and their stories and legacies are woven into the tapestry of the Limpopo and make and mystery of the “Great North”.
Limpopo has an international airport in Polokwane and many smaller ones close to tourist attractions.
