The Limpopo Golf & Safari Route Grows in Popularity

Release Date: 2012-09-12

Through collaboration with the private and public sector, the Limpopo Golf & Safari Route was created as a brand and through joint marketing efforts, has been promoted as a key annual golfing destination for golfers from Johannesburg and Pretoria and with the unique offering of safari, has huge appeal to the international market.

Key factors that attribute to the popularity of the Route include its location close to Johannesburg/Pretoria, the close proximity of the golf resorts to each other in the Waterberg, the unique offering that each resort has, the value for money appeal and the year round good weather. But the key selling point of the Route is playing golf alongside wildlife which is unique to Africa and especially to South Africa. Nowhere else in the world can you tee off next to a zebra and then after your round of golf, view the Big 5 from your game drive vehicle! Limpopo also boasts the worlds highest and longest par three, accessed only by helicopter and certainly should be on every golfers bucket list! These combined elements will enable this golfing route to soon match more popular regions such as Cape Town and the Garden Route.

The Limpopo Golf & Safari Route includes the five key golf estates in Limpopo (Zebula Golf Estate & Spa, Elements Private Golf Reserve, Koro Creek Golf Estate, Euphoria Golf Estate & Hydro and Legend Golf & Safari Route) and packages will also be available to suite all pockets including all golfing and tourism products in the Province.

Key projects planned for this year include exhibiting at the largest golf trade show in the world, the International Golf Travel Market taking place in Portugal from the 15th - 18th November 2012.

All trade are encouraged to create golfing packages to this region and ensure that the Limpopo Golf & Safari Route is high on their sales agenda. For more information, contact Natalie van Blerk from PelePele Travel & Marketing on natalie@pelepele.co.za
