Leshiba Wilderness is a magical game reserve situated high up in the breathtakingly beautiful Soutpansberg Mountains in the north of Limpopo, South Africa. With more than 380 species of indigenous tree and abundant animal and bird life, Leshiba is also a celebration of the local Venda culture, with its Venda Village Lodge a loving recreation of a traditional community by renowned artist Noria Mabasa. It is an extraordinary and definitely off-the-beaten-path destination offering a completely authentic African experience.
Activities at Leshiba include the opportunity to walk throughout the magnificent reserve, with the chance to observe giraffe, leopard, porcupines and pangolins along spectacular trails through forests, across plains and down breathtaking gorges with sparkling pools. Guests can visit ancient Bushmen rock art sites and enjoy sundowner game drives, guided walks and adventure horse riding trails. Accommodation is offered in the Venda Village Lodge, Mwedzi and Dhuva luxury suites and Hamasha Bushcamp.
Leshiba is committed to preserving and encouraging the culture and heritage of the indigenous Venda people. In conjunction with the local Venda community it established its Centre for Indigenous Knowledge to research, develop and promote the rich culture and heritage of the people of the area. This facility is open to everyone interested in the area and its people with the purpose of creating a cross-cultural dialogue. The Centre is set to become a “think tank” to secure indigenous knowledge and emerging technologies in fields as diverse as music, dance, healing, traditional medicine, medicinal plant harvesting, traditional building, agriculture, wood carving, rock art, pottery, oratory, textiles, dress-making and beadwork.
