The Leshiba Experience

Climb above the clouds, walk with the Rhino - game farm in the mountains'. For a magical African experience, try Leshiba Wilderness Game Farm, which stretches along the top of the western Soutpansberg Mountains in the Limpopo province of South Africa. Located in mountainous terrain, the farm is often lost in a morning mist- the high moisture has resulted in rich and varied vegetation, from open plains to natural bushveld and high canopy forest. 

There are more than 335 species of trees and a wide variety of birds, including black eagles, purple crested and Knysna louries and the rare Narina Trogon. The larger game includes white rhino, leopard, giraffe, zebra, sable brown hyena and numerous species of antelope. 

Lesheba is best explored on foot where we offer you the unique opportunity to walk unguided amongst our animals which include the mighty white rhino, giraffe, zebra, sable and the elusive leopard plus kudu, eland, wildebeest and many of the smaller species; red duiker, aardvark, pangolins, porcupines and civets.


There are 2 exclusive bush camps at Lesheba. Both are fully equipped for self catering and full catering is offered from The Venda Village. Several circular walking trails begin at each camp.

The Venda Village:

Internationally acclaimed Venda artist, Noria Mabasa, has created the extraordinary Venda Village. It is a living gallery of her works and overlooks Duluni Valley. There is a luxury outdoor bathroom with sculpted figureheads and a view over the plains below and a thatched lapa with a lounge, diningroom and kitchen. This camp sleeps 8. Truly African, Truly Amazing! 


Another luxurious option. The thatched camp has four en-suite bedrooms offering magnificent views of Hamasha gorge. It has a lounge and fireplace for cosy evenings with French doors opening out onto a braai area. After a long hike, there's nothing more refreshing than enjoying one of the outdoor showers. Secluded and Magical!


Game drives are available, but the best way to experience all the farm has to offer, is on foot. There are 10 marked trails from 2 to 5 hours walking time, with paths meandering through lush bush, over plains and down spectacular gorges, where in summer you can swim in clear rock pools.


For an experience which reflects the soul of Africa walk along the marked trails, join a game drive or take a horse ride within our diverse environment. Visit the ancient rock art sites and meander under dense canopies of indigenous forest or hike down rocky gorges.
