Legôla Wildlife Estate

The malaria-free Waterberg area of South Africa has been described as one of the country’s best-kept secrets, and with good reason. Just as big a secret is the Legôla Wildlife Estate, situated within this magical region.



Legôla is a unique bushveld development situated away from the hustle, bustle and everyday stresses of city living. Legôla is exclusively marketed to nature lovers who can afford the luxury of their own game farm, but don’t want to deal with the day-today maintenance hassles it brings.

The uniqueness of this development and the scarcity of stands will ensure a decent investment growth. To further ensure value for the investor wishing to re-sell at a later date, only a few of these one-hectare full title stands will be made available to the public.

Legôla Wildlife Estate is an exclusive 5600 hectare private game reserve, nestling in the foothills of the UNESCO-acclaimed Waterberg Biosphere region, situated within the Limpopo Province, 300 km north-west of Gauteng. This spectacular piece of realestate is an easy three-hour scenic drive from OR Tambo International airport or a quick 45 minute flight by helicopter.

Stands are cleverly placed around the resident waterhole, so as to encourage the game to roam freely between the lodges. All lodges are placed in such a way that it has total privacy.

Wildlife and Conservation

Wildlife conservation has become increasingly popular in this area with a negotiations with neighboring farmers to lower their fences and become part of this wildlife reserve in future.

As no hunting is allowed you will be able to get very close to any of the abundance of game, which include White Rhino, Buffalo and Sable. Other game species that roam freely and unhindered on the Legôla Wildlife Reserve include: Rooihartbeest, Brown Hyena, Blue Wildebeest, Blesbuck, Warthog,
Leopard, Eland, Giraffe, Waterbuck, Klipspringer, Bush Pig, Ostrich, Kudu, Zebra, Impala, Steenbuck, Aardvark and many other wildlife and small mammals, amphibians and fish species.

Discovering the Reserve

The 5,600 ha reserve has a 1,200 ha conservation area and another 800 ha is set aside specific for the breeding of rare game species. Lodge owners will have full transfer rights on the remaining 3,600 ha. For this purpose a circular road has specially been laid out to enable owners to explore all the wonders the reserve offers.

There are 4×4 vehicles especially equipped for game and bird viewing and for the more adventurous a five-seater turbine helicopter is available to residents to explore the farm, game and beautiful surroundings from a bird’s-eye perspective.
