Earlier this year, hubby received amazing news….he had won a competition! Now we are not the luckiest of people…but to win a weekend away valued at R10 000 was a dream come true.
The prize was a weekend away for eight people at the KweKwe Private Game Lodge near Marble Hall.
After waiting anxiously for the day to arrive, we set out on our first family holiday in over 10 years.
If any of you have ventured to Limpopo, you know that it isn’t one of the most exciting drives. However, our destination was definitely worth it.
The game lodge has three private and fully equipped residences each with its very own swimming pool and games rooms.
We had the privilege of spending the weekend in the TaTa Somba lodge….wow wow wow 🙂
Our lodge had a rustic African feel to it and so much thought was put into the design. The main house consisted of 3 bedrooms (each ensuite), a guest loo, gorgeous kitchen, dinning room and lounge area. We had our very own patio and boma which we relaxed around at the end of each day.
The lodge had a little private rondavel which hubby and I fell in love with and called home for the weekend.
TaTa Somba had a private swimming pool as well as a games room with a pool table and table tennis.
What fascinated us the most was that we were surround by the most beautiful landscape and the mystical animals that roamed it.
The lodges are not fenced off as there are no predators on the farm. This meant that we had the privilege of being greeted by giraffe, Rosie the Ostrich (as named by us), wildebeest and different types of buck.
On Saturday morning we ventured out on a game drive which allowed us to get up close to a family of giraffe….definitely a highlight of our trip.
To be able to walk freely with such amazingly magical creatures was a dream come true.
The lodges are fully serviced and the staff were the best.
We were so sad to leave but will definitely be back.
