LukAfrica - Riverside Chalets and Safaris

This last weekend was a great treat.

We packed the car and headed off to the Limpopo Province for a short road trip.

Needing a place to stay we looked up where to stay near Letsitele and came across this quaint place called LukAfrica.

The view from our balcony

Luke was kind and informative on the phone and was quick to respond to any queries we may have had.

On arrival you drive down a rough bush-veld drive, giving you the impression that you're actually entering a game farm. The reception area is neat, but at the time of writing very dry due to the lack of rain this time of year.

Luke was very friendly and on arrival offered us a welcome drink (Freshly squeezed orange juice) before showing us around the place and giving us a history of the place from the last great 100yr flood-line to how it is now.  I was personally impressed with what he's accomplished so far.

They mainly serve breakfast as they market themselves as a B&B, but do offer dinner on request (Which I'm led to believe is delicious). That night we were spoiled to an evening around the Lapa where we braaied our own meat and hung around the fire keeping warm in the cool evening air of Autumn in Limpopo.

The Cabins were well stocked and the amenities neat and functional. We slept well that evening and awoke the next day to a FULL English breakfast along with Fruit, Yogurt, Cereal and French Pressed Coffee or Tea and once again the amazing freshly squeezed orange juice.

All in all a very pleasant experience and we highly recommend LukAfrica to anyone traveling in that vicinity.
