About Lokovhela Mountain Cottage

Lokovhela Mountain Cottage is situated on top of the Soutpansberg Mountains on the Morning Sun Nature Reserve which is a Natural Heritage Site. There are crystal clear mountain streams, waterfalls, indigenous forests and spectacular scenery.

Warm days allow for walking and picnics or just to relax in the tranquility of the lodge next to our swimming pool. For the cooler evenings and when the mountain mist comes in, you can sink into a sofa in front of a wood fire.

The cottage is ideally situated to explore the area as the northern Kruger National Park, the Mapungubwe World Heritage Site and Venda, which is full of scared sites, are all in striking distance. A one-day Venda culture or Venda arts and crafts tour can be organised, which are fascinating and well worth the experience. Once you have ventured into this area, you will always return to this Louis Trichardt accommodation.

Wedding Venues: The perfect place to have your wedding, beautiful setting, friendly staff. This is a must see in order to imagine your most perfect day.

Conference Venues: We offer conference facilities, inside as well as bush conferences. We can accommodate your delegates at our Big Boabab tree or at the small waterfall. We also have space for 20 - 60 delegates for your conference.

Romantic: Our bush meals are the prefect romantic gesture, take your loved one to a romantic setting whether it is at our small waterfall or the Mashovhela Rock pool or even the big baobab tree where you will be served a delicious bush meal.
