LIMPOPO Wildlife Resorts (LWR), the commercial wing of Limpopo Tourism and Parks responsible for rendering tourism and hospitality services in Provincial reserves will give the public an opportunity to experience our Provincial Reserves without paying entrance fees. Operating under the slogan: Accessible, affordable and incredibly wild, Limpopo Wildlife Resorts operate in excess of 14 resorts that offers a plethora of exciting activities at an affordable rate. Furthermore, there are a number of small resorts that are privately operated by emerging entrepreneurs within various nature reserves on a lease basis that also offer a range of exciting outdoor experiences.
This campaign is part of September Tourism Month celebration aimed at promoting domestic tourism. Currently, approximately 57% of all visitors to these resorts come from Limpopo, with at least 42% coming from Gauteng with the rest of the remaining percentage shared between Western Cape, Mpumalanga, Free State, KZN, SADC and overseas visitors. We believe that all these resorts have something to offer to our domestic market, especially the Limpopo residents who wouldn’t have to travel long distances to relax freely in the wild.
The Wildlife Mahala Week is scheduled to take place as follows:
Date : September 19-23
Time : 6am–6pm
Venue : All Provincial nature reserves and resorts namely Nwanedi, Acacia, Mphephu, Makuya, Nylsvley, D’nyala, Schuinsdraai, Doorndraai Dam, Lekgalameetse, Rust de Winter, Shona-Langa.
We would like to put it on record that entrance will be free, but however all the other activities such as accommodation, game drive, angling, water tubing, and boat cruise will be at their usual fees and that activities will vary from one Resort to the other. For more information on activities per resort the public is encouraged to visit www.golimpopo.com or www.lwr.co.za or call 015 293 3611/2/3
