Breakaways with family/friend groups wanting to enjoy, the peace of the Northern Limpopo bush is perfect for this exclusive hideaway.

Notably the tree species detected are the Wild Seringa also known as the “Pierneef Tree”. The Wild fig and, the largest fruited Bush willow. In addition the Indian Almond, the Karee, the Acacia, together with the Cabbage tree as well as other Waterberg savannah tree species.
