 To make a reservation enquiry, click on the "reservation" button at the bottom of the page.
This is the perfect destination for corporate and executive groups of up to 12 persons for a next bush conference and who are looking for personal service, luxury accommodation and excellent cuisine in the heart of the bushveld. It is also the ideal destination for foreign tourists or for that special breakaway when you need “something else and exclusive”. At Kirabo Game Lodge between Thabazimbi and Ellisras direction Botswana in the Limpopo Province (Northern), you will find only the best – be it hospitality, the impressive variety in cuisine, quality hand- and purpose-made rosewood and teak furniture, ensuite privacy with high quality linen and mattresses in a Africa décor-setting with bamboo and porcupine quill lampshades and chandeliers of ostrich egg. You will also find kudu leather coaches and at night gemsbok horn lamps will lead you in the dark – all adding to an “enriching” atmosphere and experience. The double story thatched complex offers 6 ensuite bedrooms – some with views afar as Botswana. Enjoy lunch on the upper sundeck verandah whilst watching eland, gemsbok, kudu and other game at the water hole, spend lazy hours in the cozy lounge gazing into the crackling fire, cool off in the swimming pool with inquisitive warthogs as onlookers or join your hosts on an early morning or late afternoon sunset game drive.
