“Idyllic Bush Breakaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2008

Shakati is a small, private game lodge situated in the bushveld region of Limpopo. It offers serviced self-catering accommodation in three fully equipped chalets, each of which accommodate six people. There is a central bar, barbecue and dining area adjacent to the swimming pool for larger groups. The setting is perfect for a relaxed breakaway. Daily guided game drives are available, and maps are provided for bush walking trails.

The management is very friendly and accommodating, and we were made very welcome. The accommodation is comfortable, but basic - it is a bush setting! Pricing is very reasonable - about US$100 per night for a chalet, and well worth the 2 1/2 hour drive from Pretoria. We will definitely return there.
