About Legola Wildlife Reserve

The Concept

We believe that attention to detail, quality and uniqueness are paramount and are therefor committed to the notion of excellence:

Excellence through experience and excellence through lifestyle.

It is our dream to develop and maintain this place: a sanctuary, not only for you, but also for our animals.


The Location

Nestling in the foothills of the acclaimed UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere in Limpopo, Legola Private Wildlife Reserve is an exclusive 6500 hectare private game reserve north-west from Gauteng in the Limpopo Province. It is within a three hour drive from OR Tambo International Airport and 45 minutes from the Botswana border.

Vast, peaceful and incredibly beautiful, the Waterberg region is a fascinating destination with a rich cultural legacy and heritage coupled with a natural splendor that is particularly appealing to those in need of a place to unwind.
