Description

This is a NON SELF CATERING property!

Enjoy a stay in the true wilderness at Lubbesrust eco-lodge, a contemporary lodge with an African touch, part of a 20.500 hectares fully fenced reserve with a private airstrip.

Available for exclusive use with a maximum of 8 persons, your stay at Lubbesrust lodge will enable you to experience true wilderness and will help you to unwind totally from your normal hectic life.

The reserve is only a 450 km drive from Johannesburg Airport, taking an easy 7 or 8 hours to complete by car. A private airstrip makes it possible to also fly to the reserve.

Another possibility to travel to Lubbesrust is to take a transfer from Johannesburg to Gaborone. Transfer (by car) from Gaborone to Lubbesrust can be arranged. The drive up to the lodge will take about 5 hours (only tar road).

Situated perfectly for guests who would like to add a Botswana experience at the end of their South African trip and for guests who would like to start in the Tuli Block as part of their self-drive safari in Botswana.

As animals roam free around your lodge, a minimum age of 14 years is advised. The Property has 4 private lodges, designed for the best indoor/outdoor living.

Spacious air-conditioned open plan living and dining rooms lead effortlessly onto several patios, inviting you to sit and absorb the peaceful environment

The accommodations have a kitchenette, lounge area, bedroom area, bathroom, and outside shower. Every lodge has a lookout deck overlooking the main waterhole or its private waterhole.

Main building with lounge area, dining area, and kitchen with breakfast bar (and staff kitchen). Upstairs ‘family’ room with balcony overlooking the waterhole and a view on the hill.

Pool, lounge set, lounge beds, boma area and braai area with outside dining room area, lookout deck in a Kirkia tree overlooking the waterhole. Don’t forget to go up the lookout deck after dinner again to experience the most beautiful night skies!

Savannah, mountains, and bush come together in the Tuli Block, creating a unique ecosystem that supports incredible biodiversity.

Rhinos, elephants, lions, leopards, and hippos roam the vast area of the reserve on what was once farmland but is being restored into its true wilderness state. The reserve is a birding paradise as it is home to 350 different species of birds.

The fully fenced game & wilderness reserve offers an excellent network of tracks, leading up to a variety of waterholes, picnic spots, and viewing hides. Encountering other explorers is a rarity, with only limited tourism being permitted.

Spectacular taste of Botswana

We began our family dream trip to Africa at Lubberust and were blown away by the incredible hospitality, beauty, knowledge and vibe of this property. Maifala, the private guide, and Kelly , the private chef, are top notch in all that they provide. ”

Absolutely fantastic stay!

We've been at Lubbesrust this January for a week, with a group of 6 friends. We already had some previous experience with high-end Game Lodges, but Lubbesrust sits in its own category! The unique location within a private area of 210km2, the wonderful and extremely competent staff, the architecture and interior design of the lodge and its various buildings are all just outstanding. We very much enjoyed the morning and afternoon drives into nature and were able to seeing a wide range of wild animals. Maifala was the perfect guide, he literally knows everything about the wilderness in Botswana. Coming back from the drives, Kelly had already prepared very tasteful menus with fish, meat and vegetables. We spent our leisure time mostly on the various terraces and pools, only being interrupted by stunning herds of wild animals visiting the close by waterholes. Overall, the stay was absolutely top, we will always remember and we highly recommend Lubbesrust to anyone who is seeking a combination of wild life and luxury accommodation.”

Top of the line

Amazing camp and staff. As it was off peak season so we had essentially a private reserve. Maifala was excellent and Kelli in the kitchen was wonderful. In this time of year your long range visibility is limited but when you find the animals they are very close. Had baby elephant walk right up to us. Wild dogs on a fresh kill. Surrounded by 10 giraffes another day. The lodges are incredible. Highly recommend if near Botswanna. Sylvia was also very helpful in the planning process.”
