Shalimpo is a small, unassuming, yet stylish lodge accommodating a maximum number of eight guests. All facilities have exquisite, panoramic views of the reserve, confluence of the Shashe and Limpopo rivers and/or the sandstone hills and rock formations on the Zimbabwean/South African sides of the rivers … setting the tone for your exclusive and stylish, yet informal and relaxed stay in one of Africa's most beautiful destinations.

Our facilities at Shalimpo include a well appointed comfortable and functional open plan indoor dining and lounge area, roofed patio flowing into an open air braai facility in an old African boma configuration to spend those crisp clear African nights around the campfire with friends and family. There are four tastefully furnished African safari styled en suite bedrooms to retire to for some solitude, creating a superb alternative to spending time in the lookout shelter, or just sitting admiring the views from the unique natural vantage points on the precipice of the lodge grounds or relaxing at the plunge pool.

For the more adventurous there is a solar heated open air shower to wash off the dust after participating in one of the safari activities on offer at the lodge, or for those who can not drag themselves away from the star studded heavens for even a second. The large farm styled kitchen is fully equipped and the addition of the old Dover wood stove and two gas rings brings a feeling of old world charm to the kitchen as well as an instant cup of tea when reading your favorite novel on a lazy afternoon.
