If you’re looking for the ultimate in luxury, combined with the perfect setting from which to experience the legendary Big 5, you’ll find it all, and more, at the top luxury lodges at the Big Five Game Reserve in Limpopo.

The area in which you’ll find this ideal combination is as far removed from the chaos, noise, pollution and daily grind of the concrete jungle as you can get, just a few hours away from Pretoria and Johannesburg, Gauteng.

In the Xitsonga language of the locals, you’ll find that the translation of the name Tumbeta into ‘secluded hideaway’, couldn’t be a more fitting description of the luxury safari accommodation at Tumbeta Big 5 Game Reserve.

Tumbeta Big 5 Game Reserve is situated in an area that reflects the contrasts in nature you’ll experience in the unspoiled expanses found in the Northwest corner of Limpopo Province, where the starkness of the Kalahari Bushveld gives way to the rich, sweet Bushveld, held within the embrace of the Matlabas River Valley.

This malaria-free region of Northwest Limpopo is over three million years old, where a phenomenal variety of wildlife and birds make this scenic area their home, resulting in one of the top ecotourism and safari destinations in South Africa.
