The lodge is situated in an oasis of Fever Trees, Sausage Trees and the ever present Mopane Trees. With the Mogalakwena River flowing in front of the lodge, with it comes an abundance of bird life that can be seen by simply taking a short stroll through the camp grounds. Limpokwena has over 350 recorded bird species which would keep any keen birder occupied for hours. Along with the colorful array of bird species, a regular sighting from the banks is a number of Nile Crocodiles that spend their day’s sun tanning on the shores.
The main area consists of a communal lounge and dining area, as well as a fully equipped kitchen. We offer self-catering accommodation at this stage, although meals can be booked prior to arrival. There is also a communal swimming pool for the warm summer days.
Our lodge is best suited for family groups looking to get away for a while and regroup, or couples wanting to spend some quality time together in a tranquil and relaxing environment. Bivack is a small, unassuming lodge that prides itself on simplicity and appreciating the wilderness from a new perspective. Take a game drive with our knowledgeable guide who will introduce you to the small intricacies of nature that often go unnoticed; track an elephant who may paid us a midnight visit; or take a night drive to discover the nocturnal life that surrounds us in our sleep with the chance at spotting Porcupine, spotted Hyena, or the ever elusive Leopard!
