LEGÔLA WILDLIFE ESTATE IS AN EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE GAME FARM SITUATED IN THE LIMPOPO PROVINCE.

The Estate, at the foothills of the acclaimed UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere,  falls in the malaria-free area and is closer to Marken, about 70km from Ellisras/Lephalale. The perennial Palala River running through the estate has a variety of fish species and the occasional hippo sightings. There is a gravel landing strip of 920m for a fly-in. With only about 2,5 hours’ drive from Pretoria, this is the place for a perfect weekend break-away.

The region is a fascinating destination with a rich cultural legacy and heritage coupled with a natural splendour that is particularly appealing to those in need of a place to unwind.
