As shareholders of Limpopo Lipadi one of the great privileges and responsibilities is to help protect and develop this wonderful 20,500 hectares of African wilderness that we own. The land was originally farmed and was badly damaged by overgrazing and ploughing to grow crops. Restoring the natural balance and beauty of this magnificent piece of wilderness is challenging and exciting. Is this something you would like to be involved in?
