Mashovhela Bush Lodge

Found in: Bushveld, Limpopo, Lodges, Louis Trichardt, Safari Lodges

Morning Sun Nature Reserve is situated in the Soutpansberg Mountains of the Limpopo Province in South Africa, close to Louis Trichardt / Makhado. Due to its convenient location, it is an ideal relaxing stop over en-route to and from Botswana, Zimbabwe, northern Kruger National Park and the Mapungubwe National Park.
Enjoy the unique atmosphere of Mashovhela Bush Lodge in Morning Sun Nature Reserve, sited between cliffs where Black Eagles nest. This Natural Heritage Site is situated in the scenic, malaria-free Soutpansberg Mountains of the Limpopo Province in South Africa.

Be revitalized by the natural beauty and the Venda culture of dance, drums, secret forests and lakes, unique mythology and the magic of the sacred Mashovhela rock pool.

Let our warm and friendly staff pamper you whilst you relax in our cosy Venda-style lodge, which is recognized for its eco-friendly principles and sustainable energy usage all at an affordable rate.

Relax in our matchless ethnically decorated 10 en-suite chalets which evoke a special Venda village atmosphere. In accordance with our eco-friendly principles and desire to minimize our ecological footprint, all our chalets as well as our lodge were built on an abandoned Venda settlement giving you an authentic South African feel.

The call of bush babies, the hooting of Giant Eagle Owls and chirping of cicadas and frogs will break the silence of the night whilst you stretch out on our luxurious “king size” or twin beds. From your own private veranda surrounded by “magube” walls you can enjoy a cocktail under the African sun, whilst watching the Black Eagles returning to their nest.

Experience a wide variety of traditional and exciting new flavours in our pan-African cuisine in an ethnic environment. Our excellent service and warm atmosphere is culturally inspired by the Venda people and will make the dining experiences a special occasion to remember.

The Drumbeat Restaurant, terrace, boma and selected sites in the bush, as well as the fully licensed bar guarantee not only variations in food, fine South African wines, cocktails or a drink of your choice, but a choice of settings for various occasions.

Beautiful year round weather allows you the opportunity to breakfast in the bush at one of many archaeological sites or shadowed beneath a magnificent old, Baobab tree. An individualized lunch can be planned according to the day’s activities.

The memorable dinners start as the sun sets and the drums call you to our African boma to join in a Venda dance to honour the chef for the creative and delicious meal to be served under the star filled sky.
Our exceptional hospitality is typical of the Venda-culture and has won a Welcome award for best lodge by South African Tourism. The lodge is also accredited with two of South Africa’s highest awards for Eco-tourism and has been graded with 3 stars.

Visiting Venda, situated in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, is a truly captivating experience filled with mystical forests, sacred lakes, water spirits, stunning scenery and world famous crafts. The Venda culture is steeped in the spirit world that finds expression in their woodcarvings, pottery and the decoration of their dwellings.

Nature Hikes and Walking Safaris: Explore and investigate the diverse fauna and flora of this beautiful Natural Heritage Site on foot. Marked trails take you across scenic valleys, along sparkling streams and through various indigenous forests.
Guided Walks and Drives: Let our resident guide bring the bush alive whilst sharing knowledge on the natural wonders of the bush and the use thereof to man.

Morning Sun Nature Reserve is not only a bio-diversity hotspot for plants (our Reserve has more tree species and other plant life than the entire Kruger National Park!), but also for birds (up to 400 different species) and butterflies (300 species) as well, making it a truly magical place to come relax and get reacquainted with nature.
