This stunning self catering house is a charming thatched home overlooking the 7th hole of the Gary Player designed
golf course. It’s one of our very best lodges with the most incredible views from the main bedroom over the dam.

The large wooden deck, overlooking the dam provides tranquil views across the valley and boasts a built in braai.
The house is also fully mosquito gauzed.

Kruger Park Lodge – Hazyview
‘It’s a wonderful day at the Kruger Park Lodge’ – the standard greeting when phoning through to one of the best resorts in the country and a more truer saying there could not be.
For 17 years we’ve been coming to the Kruger Park Lodge and I know we’ll keep coming back year after year for as long as we can. It’s the most special, peaceful place you could dream of coming to. The sunsets are one of the best in the world with the hazy mountains of Hazyview surrounding the resort. It;s the perfect place to get away from the cold Joburg winter in June / July as temperatures are often in the high 20’s – it honestly feels like summer!!
It has everything a family could want for in a holiday:
– A beautiful 9 hole course hole where Impala roam freely,
– A hippo hide where one can sit for ages watching the bird life and hippos play
– River walks, a restaurant, swimming pools, tennis courts, putt putt, kids play area with trampolines, jungle gyms, giant chess board etc make it a kids paradise
– The staff are so friendly
The Phabeni Gate is only 10 minutes away making a trip to the Kruger National Park a must … go in at 06h00 .. drive just short of 2 hours to Skukuza, have a wonderful breakfast overlooking the Sabie river and make your way back to the Kruger Park Lodge in time for lunch.
Renting a self catering chalet which happens to be serviced daily is the ideal holiday break
It’s a place to come to, to recharge your batteries, get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and to sit and enjoy great times with friends and family
It’s a place you’ll want to go back to time and time again.

Mpumalanga,the place of the rising sun, is one of South Africa ‘s fastest growing provinces. Most people are attracted by the splendid panorama, others by the fauna and flora, and yet others by the saga of the 1870’s gold rush era and a wealth of fascinating tribal legends.
Appropriately branded as ‘Paradise Country’ a small number of regions in the world can contest the extraordinary beauty of the lowveld and escarpment. Mountains, panoramic passes, valleys, rivers, waterfalls and forests typify the landscape.
This is also Big Game country, the setting for dozens of sanctuaries teeming with wildlife and birds. Among them, the Kruger National Park is world renowned, as are several of the luxurious private reserves on its western boundary.
The entire area offers incomparable opportunities for bird watching, hiking, horse riding and fishing. Streams once panned for gold have become the haunts of eager anglers and lazy trout. Steeped in the history of pioneers, hunters and fortune seekers, fascinating gold rush towns abound.
Barberton and Pilgrim’s Rest are among the most famed. A unique, additional dimension occurs in the Middleveld region, which is occupied by the Ndebele people, noteworthy for their traditional gear and attractively decorated houses.
En route to the Kruger National Park through Mpumalanga , you have the opportunity to see breathtaking vistas of the locale. Turn off the N4 to the village of Dullstroom , journey over the Long Tom Pass and its magnificent panoramic views to Lone Creek Falls and the amiable forestry town of Sabie . Just beyond Sabie, the Mac Mac Falls are worth stopping for; and you can indulge yourself in a swim in the crystal-clear pools.
