Our story

Our Story
Tava Lingwe game lodge is situated on the cusp of the Vredefort Dome Heritage site and is itself a place of beauty and destiny. Before owning the lodge, Dries and Santie Visagie received a word from God about Tava Lingwe. The word was clear and confirmed several times, that one day they would own the 170-hectare farm and together with their family, they would turn this place of destiny into a sanctuary and safe haven for God's people. Years passed by, with the word remaining unfulfilled, until it was time. In June 2017, they visited the farm and in July 2017 they moved into their home at Tava Lingwe, destiny collided powerfully with life.
The original name of the game lodge was Jabulani, but Tava Lingwe was birthed from the Scriptures and given to the Visagie family as the name for the lodge. The original word for Noah’s Ark is the Hebrew word Tava, which also means a place of safety in the midst of suffering. With this at the heart of Tava Lingwe, guests and visitors from across South Africa and the globe, experience warmth, hospitality, peace and goodness during their stay at Tava Lingwe.
