Limpopo Adventures

Limpopo, South Africa

My parents have a lodge in Limpopo which we go to pretty often. It is one of my favorite places in the world and the most wonderful place to relax.

It’s difficult to describe what makes it so incredible; the winding dirt roads, long hot days, the pressing silence, tumultuous storms, open veld, the luminous stars…

We spend our days taking long walks in the bush, swimming, riding, cycling, fishing, reading, paddling, braaing, playing with the dogs, baking, taking photos and napping.

There is something amazing about sitting on the balcony and watching the sun slip below the horizon as the chirping of crickets begins to fill the air.
