Towering trees, sweeping mountain tops, clear skies and amazing sunsets is what makes for an idyllic backdrop at Thabaphaswa Mountain Sanctuary in the Mokopane District of Limpopo (formerly Potgietersrus).

The lodge is in the Witvinger Nature Reserve and is placed between 2 national routes mainly the N1 and N11 and is on-route to The Kruger National Park as well as the neighbouring northern countries of Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

The individually designed shelters which are nestled amongst large boulders and the presence of bird and game life is what makes this haven so attractive for nature lovers, families, friends and couples who are in need of a mountain getaway.

The one of a kind bush camps each convey their own distinctive look and are separated into three types, each linked by winding concrete walkways. “The Dome Rock”, “Kanniedood” and “Fig Tree” camps offer single and bunk beds, built in braai areas, ablution facilities, wash up areas, heated showers and a semi-equipped kitchen, with some sharing a communal kitchen. The camp equipment includes braai grids, pots/pans, kettles, 2 plate gas stove, and gas lamps. No fridges are provided, guests are required to bring own cooking and eating utensils and cooler box.

The 4 separate units which comprise the unique Dome Rock units are made from glass walls which are situated amongst huge boulders which afford guests both privacy and the experience of being close to nature – whilst still enjoying the comfort of beds with thick mattresses.

Sheltered amongst the soaring Commiphora trees lies the triple storey Kanniedood Camp. This 14 sleeper camp is quaintly rustic - built from reeds and boasting magnificent views from its lofty perch, high up on a steep rock face..

The Fig Tree Camp caters for a total of 16 persons on bunk beds. The camp comprises a reed shelter with an iron roof and is situated adjacent to a communal braai area.

The Pump House is a quaint stone and thatched cottage furnished with a Victorian style bath, paraffin lamps and a brass double bed creating a romantic ambience for honeymooners to enjoy.

The endless network of hiking, 4x4 and biking trails beckon nature lovers to the variety of bird, game and plant life in the area. Discover the surroundings of Mokopane and open your heart to new experiences including Mopani Worms at the Mashashane Cultural Village and visiting the regal white lions at a neighbouring reserve.
