Tee off in the African wilds when you head out on the Limpopo Golf & Safari Route. This is where you get to play golf in the heart of the African bush while staying at exclusive game lodges and enjoying close encounters with the Big Five and other wildlife.

Did you know?

The earliest golf ball was a 'featherie', a hand-sewn pouch stuffed with down and coated in paint.

The Limpopo Golf & Safari Route is a combination of two wonderful pursuits – golfing and game viewing.

The Limpopo Golf & Safari Route takes you and your golf clubs into the heart of the famous Waterberg, a scenic region known for its excellent golf courses, plentiful wildlife and many game reserves. A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Waterberg is a 400 000 ha protected wilderness area.

On the Limpopo Golf & Safari Route you get to play and stay at four of Limpopo's finest golf resorts – Legend Golf & Safari Resort, Elements Private Golf Reserve, Zebula Golf Estate & Spa and Euphoria Golf Estate & Hydro.

First stop is Zebula Golf Estate & Spa, a Peter Makovitch-designed Bushveld Links Course. Here you'll get your first taste of teeing off in the African wild, followed by spa pampering, fine dining and bushveld luxury.

Next is Elements Private Golf Reserve, where the calm bushveld surroundings offer a peaceful respite from a challenging day on one of Limpopo's most beautiful golf courses.

Euphoria Golf Estate & Hydro is your third stop. After a memorable game of golf, head out for sundowners and a decadent dinner at the Sundowner Deck Restaurant, which you get to by cable car! Euphoria also offers game drives as well as various spa treatments.

At Legend Golf & Safari Resort, your last stop, you can play the highest and longest par three in the world – the Extreme 19th, accessed only by helicopter. Legends is in the heart of Big Five country and you'll also get to go on a game drive into the Waterberg wilderness.
