Jembisa, Waterberg

Jembisa game lodge is only ever booked out to one group at a time, which means that you have complete and uninterrupted access to a rather special place. Set in the heart of the Limpopo province, north of Johannesburg, the Palala River Reserve is a haven for rhino, leopard, hippos and crocodiles, as well as a diversity of fascinating birds and smaller game like aardvark, civet and porcupine.

It’s a haven for people too. The Jembisa Lodge is a harmonious combination of stone and thatch, with a pool and luxurious bedrooms, elegant dining room and a high-rise observation deck set in the tree tops.
