Louis Trichardt Accommodation

Louis Trichardt is a small town in the far north of Limpopo province, and as with many South African towns, its history is inextricably intertwined with the Voortrekkers. Its humble beginnings were nothing but a few caravans and a vegetable patch, presided over by some Voortrekker women. The leader of the group was named Louis Trichardt, and despite perishing on a journey to Delegoa Bay before the town was officially established, the settlement, once it became official in 1899, was named after him.

Today Louis Trichardt is nestled at the foot of the Soutpansberg, in an exceptionally fertile pocket of land, even by Limpopo’s standards. Due to the subtropical climate, which produces warm, humid summers and summer rainfall, with cooler, more sufferable winter conditions, there are a number of fruit orchards in the surrounding area. The main produce is fruit such as litchis, mangoes, bananas and nuts.

Lying in the shadow of the Soutpansberg gives Louis Trichardt a nice atmosphere as the mountains seem to watch over the town. They are also home to a huge amount of biodiversity including all manner of small insect critters and rodents and birds all the way across the spectrum to members of the big 5 such as rhinos and elephants. Louis Trichardt’s proximity to some of South Africa’s best game reserves is another draw card.

The area of Limpopo in which you’ll find Louis Trichardt is traditionally home to the Venda tribes. Wandering around looking at the wooden carvings, decorated clay pots and other souvenirs at the craft stalls thus adds a cultural dimension to a visit there as these crafts are very often created using traditional techniques and decorated with the same patterns that the forefathers from eons past would have used.

Louis Trichardt
Beautiful town. Friendly people.
- Christo Kellerman

Louis Trichardt
A picturesque town perfectly located from which to explore the area.
- Sean Quinlan

Louis Trichardt
This is a fine area to stay in; away from border buzz and big crowds. The Soutpansberg is beautiful, with a warm feeling of friendly surroundings. One leaves the area with reluctance and wants to return for longer stays. The business centre looks well-kept.
