Tzaneen Country Lodge is the greenest hotel in Limpopo, probably in all Southern Africa. We did not become green, we started Green and we stay Green. We are truly committed and believe in eco sustainability. For us it is not a fad or an advertising necessity.
Solar energy is used for all water heating. Energy saving lighting is used in every possible situation. Evaporator coolers are used extensively and air-conditioners only where unavoidable.
We sanitise and purify all water we use and then re-cycle it for irrigating our gardens and mango farm. This 100% re-cycling of water not only conserves this precious resource but also safeguards the pristine uncontaminated quality of our groundwater, which is drawn from wells 120m below the surface. The quality of aquatic and bird life in our surface waters is a testament to our concern for our environment. By using solid wood dining tables and laminated conference tables in conjunction with a guest linen replacement policy, we further save significant quantities of water.
We farm a small portion intensively and we have returned 60% of previous agricultural land to indigenous forest, where over 3000 indigenous species of flora and fauna have been re-established. Re-cycling here is not a catch word but a way of life. Besides following the prescribed best practices policies on solid waste we even recycle buildings.
Please contact us for greater detail on our practices and policies. We hope that if you do visit your can help us in practical ways to improve on what we are doing.
Activities at our Hotel
The Lodge offers a choice of activities to suit a wide variety of interests and age groups. There are different trails of various lengths which can be used for walking, jogging or cycling. They can also be used by those interested in the trees, birds and animals of the region. If you don't want to walk or cycle you can also take a horse. If you wish to neither walk or ride there is even a canoe or two for paddling, fishing or birding from the water. We have a barge for both serious Bass fishermen and for relaxation.
A family can combine all these activities with a picnic where we can deliver not only the picnic to the site near the water but also Grandpa and Grandma if they don't wish to walk, paddle or ride. You could be doing all this while our baby sitting service takes care of the kids at the Animal Farm and Playground or Spa lovers are being pampered at the Spa. Serious fishermen can enjoy trophy bass fishing on a catch and release basis. We also have swimming pools to relieve the boredom or the summer heat and a fitness studio for the healthy.
To add variety and keep the family busy in the evenings or on a rainy day, there is a pool table, table tennis, darts, table soccer and many board games for fun and stimulation.
We shall soon have a guided quad bike trail with a riverside picnic, game drives, farm tours, a horse carriage and donkey cart. We will also open a library with an internet facility. Please inquire if you are interested as some of these things may already be in operation.
