Venetia Limpopo Nature Reserve and Little Muck Lodge

The 36 000ha Venetia Limpopo Nature Reserve on which the mine of the same name is located, lies close to the confluence of the Shashe and Limpopo Rivers. The reserve is home to predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah that have established themselves by natural incursion and continue to do so from Botswana and Zimbabwe. The diverse range of habitats in the reserve vary from riverine forest to impressive sandstone cliffs and it supports a wide range of plant and animal life, including elephant, giraffe, rhino and various antelope species.

Little Muck Lodge:

Little Muck Lodge is situated on a sandstone ridge and offers guests views of the Limpopo River floodplain below and Botswana’s Tuli block in the distance. The lodge is situated within the Mapungubwe National Park, which in the future will form part of a new transfrontier peace-park with Botswana and Zimbabwe.

The lodge is built of stone and thatch and offers simple luxury. All rooms are en-suite, air-conditioned and are set a short distance away from the main lodge area.
