Take in the best of both worlds and combine your holiday, staying at the Mopane Bush Lodge nearby the Limpopo River in South Africa, with fantastic birding possibilities.
Adjoining the new Mapungubwe National Park, South Africa’s northernmost National Park, Mopane Bush Lodge is situated on the 6 000 hectare Mapesu Nature Reserve. It is a working game farm, not only protecting mammals but also birds. The lodge and the nature reserve offers particularly rewarding birding and plans are on the table to incorporate this Mapesu Nature Reserve into the proposed Limpopo Shashe Transfrontier Park, incorporating the Northern Tuli Game Reserve in Botswana and adjacent areas of Zimbabwe, and the Venetia Limpopo Nature Reserve in South Africa.
