In South Africa’s Limpopo Province there is a magical wildlife reserve where the animals own the land and humans are merely the custodians. Here rescued wildlife can live their lives and raise their young in perfect safety.
Situated in the heart of this amazing reserve is the Sticky Tongue Luxury Private Bush Camp. Here you will find so much more than just a wildlife experience. Awareness tourism is a brand new concept for the discerning guests that would like to learn more about modern day conservation and the daily challenges threatening to push more and more endangered species over the edge as poaching continues to spread across the African continent like a wildfire.
Successful wildlife rescues and rehabilitation was instrumental to repopulate this 8000 acre wildlife reserve and species found in the protected refuge include: Impala, Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Waterbuck, Common and Mountain Reedbuck, Grey Duiker, Nyala, Giraffe, Burchell’s Zebras, Steenbok, Sharpe’s Grysbok, Klipspringer and all of the Big Five.
Some very elusive and rare creatures like Pangolin and Aardvark have also chosen of their own accord to make this protected reserve their home. Wild leopard and cheetahs roam freely and a pack of rescued African Wild Dogs will be introduced shortly.
Many small predators like serval, caracal and civets can also be seen in the reserve and the Sanctuary’s large predator sanctuary is home to some lions rescued from South Africa’s sordid canned lion breeding and hunting industry that will live out their lives in large natural habitat enclosures in their respective prides.
The camp consists of five luxury double safari style tents. Each tent contains two ¾ beds that can be used as a single king-size bed and an on-suite bathroom. All tents have electricity, air conditioning and free Wi-Fi.
The main area consists of a lounge, dining area and pub with a fireplace and an outdoor rock pool overlooking a waterhole just below the camp.
A minimum stay of two nights is required and additional game drives are available as an optional extra.
