With demand for isolated, nature-focused escapes on the rise and an upsurge in group bookings now that families and friends can reunite, Lepogo Lodges’ Noka Camp has launched a timely 10% discount offer for exclusive hire bookings. The offer is available for stays before 15 December, 2021.

Lepogo Lodges, one of Africa’s few 100% not-for-profit luxury safari operators, set within the 50,000-hectare, malaria-free Lapalala Wilderness Reserve and home to the ‘big five’, extends a wealth of diverse activities and experiences.

Luxury camp South Africa

Guests who choose to book the entire camp will enjoy exclusive access to its facilities and amenities, all the while experiencing the utmost privacy and world-class personal service that Noka Camp is renowned for.

With only one other commercial lodge on the reserve, this is the ideal pick for luxury travellers in search of a remote wilderness escape.

The luxury camp consists of five stilted villas with private pool, including one villa especially designed for families. The villas are joined by a main lodge comprised of dining room, bar, lounge area and sprawling outdoor terrace, all perched atop a 100ft cliff overlooking the winding Palala River below and the endless bush ahead. The camp is entirely off-grid, with all energy self-generated by a bespoke, 250m solar walkway.

Excursions and activities range from game-drives and water safaris, to tree top yoga and tours of iron-age settlements and bushman paintings in the cliffs below the lodge. Lepogo also offers ‘luxury bush sleep outs’ which allow one to follow in the footsteps of the forefathers of Lapalala.

Open-air and in-room dining experiences

A choice of open-air and in-room dining experiences will provide ample opportunity to relax and recharge, with a team of world-class chefs headed by the Heston Blumenthal-trained Thapelo Letsogo.

Lepogo Lodges is the very first luxury safari operator in Africa to launch a carbon offset programme. Based on careful research of emission figures, Lepogo Lodges calculates the carbon emissions resulting from each guest’s journey, from the time they leave their home to the moment they return. The figure is converted into a monetary value which is then donated by the camp into one of three conservation projects chosen by the guest.
