A remarkable experience and memories I will keep with me forever! Limpopo Lipadi is a beautiful reserve and we were spoiled to see lions, leopards, eland, cheetah, elephants, antelope and the famous wild dogs during my stay.  It was a privilege to be so welcomed by the lovely staff.

Highlights

Highlights

Limpopo Lipadi is 20,500 hectares in size and contains 40 different mammal species and 372 birds with only a few volunteers at a time making it a meaningful small group experience.  Set on the banks of the famous Limpopo River, and one of the most beautiful wilderness locations in the world, Limpopo-Lipadi Game Reserve offers a wide array of activities to volunteers.

Location

Location

The game reserve is located in the Tuli Block, which is a narrow fringe of land at Botswana’s eastern border wedged between Zimbabwe in the north and east and South Africa in the south.  The surrounding area is rural and it does offer a special opportunity to live and work with local people and to experience the everyday hardships of living in rural Africa.

Free Time

Free Time

In your free time, volunteers can go hiking along the Limpopo river with a chance to observe crocodile, hippo, when flowing and impressive bird life, go on safari or on night drives, spotlighting for rare creatures such as bush babies, aardvarks and bat eared foxes, go climbing on Lipadi Hill which towers about 300m above the reserve, or visit nearby villages.
