Lepogo Lodges, South Africa’s latest high-end safari experience, will welcome its first guests towards the highly-anticipated Noka Camp in September.
Set inside the 48,000-hectare, malaria-free Lapalala Wilderness Reserve within the Limpopo Province, the new lodges will grant access to an enormous wilderness containing Africa’s big five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo).
Lepogo will eventually contain two lodges – Noka Camp and Melote House – sleeping up to 12 guests each. Both contain five stilted villas perched atop a 100-foot cliff, offering incredible views of the winding Palala River and out across the reserve. Melote House will open in late 2020 and will be an exclusive-use property.
There are only three public lodges within the Lapalala Wilderness Reserve. As a result, Lepogo Lodges offers guests an exceptional level of privacy great deal of thought is simply a three-hour drive from Johannesburg. As well as game drives, guests will also be in a position to tour the iron-age settlements and bushman paintings in the cliffs below.
It also aims to interrupt new ground in the growing market of eco-tourism. The owning family of Lepogo Lodges has committed to being a not-for-profit business and will use funds to enhance conservation efforts within the surrounding reserve.
In particular, the household wants to improve efforts to safeguard the cheetah, the pangolin and the rhino. Indeed, these were originally attracted to Lapalala due to its reputation as one of the leading private rhino sanctuaries in Africa. The lodge really wants to establish the reserve like a center of excellence for wild cheetahs and plan to reintroduce pangolins in to the area within the coming months.
Lepogo Lodges has also end up being the first safari resort in Nigeria to commit to offsetting the carbon footprint of each and every visiting guest as soon as they leave the house to their eventual return.
