About Shikwaru Lodge

Shikwaru Lodge offers an outdoor experience beyond comparison. A mere two-hour drive from Gauteng, the lodge is situated 28 km south of Mokopane in the Limpopo province of South Africa. The lodge acts as the perfect destination for tourists, conferences, weddings, wildlife enthusiasts, birdwatchers and anglers.

Our accommodation includes luxury chalets, luxury tented camps and a bush camp. We cater for individuals, families and groups. Our conference centre seats up to 150 people and is ideal for corporate meetings and training sessions.

Shikwaru is the Shona name for Pangolin. The farm was named Shikwaru after a Pangolin was seen on the farm. A visit to Shikwaru promises a lasting memory of tranquillity, spectacular scenery and a wealth of historical and cultural treasures nearby. The 1200 hectare farm is a malaria-free environment and the land lies in the summer rainfall zone with wet summers and cool dry winters.

Shikwaru has recently embarked on breeding programmes to establish breeding herds of buffalo, sable antelope and nyala. The main objective of these programmes is to breed exceptional quality stock for re-sale as breeding stock.

At Shikwaru, we have the deepest respect for people and wildlife and we are passionate and thoughtful about our natural surroundings. Our intensive management techniques are testimony to our commitment to the utmost quality and service, and our personnel are our greatest ambassadors.

You are invited to come and enjoy true bushveld hospitality in style and comfort with breathtaking scenery.

                      Very private & secluded.

                      What a great experience staying in Watoto tented camp. Beautiful and comfortable and clean. Will definitely go back!Just a suggestion: warn guests beforehand that there are buffalo! ?? We almost went for a run and that would have been fun if we came across them...

                      The Lodge is situated in a remote location, perfect for someone who has a busy lifestyle and would find having no reception an absolute bliss. The staff are helpful, they go out of their way to make you feel at home. They serve the best food and the portions are good. Bedrooms are kept clean regularly and you are granted lots of privacy. I would love to revisit Shikwaro Lodge and it’s definitely recommendable.

                      We had a great weekend away celebrating our Anniversary. The Staff were friendly and always willing to assist where they could. Weekend was filled with a comedy of errors however we still managed to make the most of our time at Shikwaru Lodge. Accommodation was clean and well maintained. We have decided we will visit Shikwaru Lodge again but this time with friends and family in tow. Special mention goes out to Jabulani (Game Drive Guide) and Peacemaker (Chef) that were both full of smiles and were always willing to go the extra mile.

                      Everything was fine for us during our time spent at Shikwaru Lodge. The room was very clean and the place is nice. I would maybe suggest they have alcoholic beverages or let us know if we need to bring our own.
