Brief introduction to Limpopo-Lipadi:
Limpopo-Lipadi is a privately owned game reserve in Tuli Block, Botswana. Because of the unique ownership structure and dedicated management team at the reserve, shareholders are able to have fun and leave a conservation legacy without having to deal with the complexities and costs of personally managing their own game reserve. Shareholders get to visit the reserve whenever they choose (this is not timeshare), enjoy its facilities (including comfortable lodges on the banks of the Limpopo River) and to get involved in conservation and community projects at their discretion.

Limpopo-Lipadi Game Reserve is owned by Limpopo Lipadi Botswana Investment Ltd (LLBI), a public company registered in Botswana. Shareholders purchase one or more shares in LLBI to enjoy the use of the shareholder game lodge or build their own private lodge, as follows:
Shareholder communal lodges – owners of 1 share (Gold).
Owners of one share (Gold status) have the use of the shareholder game lodges, the reserve and all other communal facilities. This is NOT time-share and there is no limit on time spent in the Reserve, which is subject only to availability and Botswana tourism visa requirements. During their stay on the reserve Gold shareholders have exclusive use of one of seven lodges at River Camp plus shared use of the communal central area with a swimming pool, bar, dining area and free wifi. They also have use of a game-drive vehicle, with or without a guide (self-drive requires the passing of a basic driving and bush skills course). Private vehicles may not be used for game drives. Meals and beverages are either self-catered or fully catered by prior arrangement. Lodges are cleaned and maintained by full time staff. Gold shareholders pay low daily fees for the services described above, and an annual levy. The developer still has Gold shares available at $105,000 per share, compared to our price from private sellers starting at $75,000 per share.
Private lodge sites – owners of 5 shares (Diamond).
Owners of 5 shares (Diamond status) enjoy exclusive use of a private lodge site via a 99-year lease agreement with LLBI. They are entitled to build and maintain their own private lodge, subject to defined standards and environmental requirements. Diamond shareholders pay an annual levy. All 16 private sites initially offered by the developer were sold, although 2 more are planned – at the price of $550,000 per site. Our exclusive mandate price is $387,500 via private sale, for one of the best sites in the reserve.
The game reserve
Limpopo-lipadi is a private game reserve on banks of the Limpopo River in Tuli Block, Botswana – a malaria-free area.
At 20 500 hectares (205 km2) and with 14km of Limpopo River frontage, the reserve is large enough to sustain good populations of lions, leopards, wild dogs, brown and spotted hyenas, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, bushpigs, hippos, crocodiles, many antelope species and smaller mammals such as aardvarks, African wild cats, civets and honey badgers. Birdlife is varied and prolific.
The reserve enjoys various habitat types and magnificent views from the rocky hills that dot the landscape. There are many shady spots under the huge trees along the forested Limpopo River bank for bird watching, fishing, bush meals and just chilling out. You can also enjoy game viewing from hides and waterholes spaced around the reserve.
The owners view the reserve as a “home away from home” in the African bush and some spend months at the reserve per year, often with friends and relatives as guests.
Limpopo-Lipadi is well managed by a passionate team of +/- 80 people, with strategic direction provided by the Board of Directors.
Ownership of a share/s in this respected reserve allows you to have fun and leave a conservation legacy without having to deal with the complexities and costs of personally managing your own game reserve. Owning a share entitles shareholders to visit the reserve whenever they choose, enjoy its facilities (including comfortable lodges on the banks of the Limpopo River) and to get involved in conservation and community projects at their discretion.
Shares in the public company that owns the land (freehold title) are priced in US dollars and investors enjoy the benefit of Botswana’s vibrant economy and status as a safe tourist destination, stable democracy and a member of the Commonwealth.
