The Louis Trichardt Lodge is located in the charming town Louis Trichardt, (Makhado) Limpopo. It nestles at the foot of the Soutpansberg, a unique wilderness area that accommodates over 500 tree species and about 450 species of birds. The Soutpansberg mountain range is 130 km long and is home to a famous tourist attraction - the giant Baobab tree.

The highest point, called Lajuma is home to scores of eagles, falcons and other predatory bird species. Other bird species including the rare Red-throated Twinspot, Knysna Loerie and the Naringa Togon can be found. This is truly a prime bird watching spot!

Most of the Soutpansberg region is malaria-free, with the exception of the north-eastern areas near the Zimbabwe and Mozambique borders, and the Kruger National Park.
