Legacy Private Residencies: Kruger Park Lodge- Mpumalanga, South Africa (6563)

Mpumalanga,

Perfectly secluded in a woodland expanse on the banks of the Sabie River, Kruger Park Lodge surrounds you in comfort and luxury against a backdrop of the African bush. Visual splendors abound at the Kruger Park Lodge Estate, whose indigenous gardens are home to an abundance of bird life. One minute you may be watching an impala drink at the Sabie River's water edge, and the next you may be enjoying a superb game of golf on the 9-hole Gary Player-designed golf course. Your garden-adorned, thatch-roofed residence will open to either the golf course or river, or be blissfully secluded by the surrounding woodlands. Soon you will feel well-removed from daily cares and madding crowds in this tranquil and peaceful haven in a harmonious village setting. While many enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and opportunity to get away from it all, others thrill at the chance to observe local hippos in their natural habitat, and to join exciting game drives in the Kruger National Park, one of the most eminent game parks in the world. Kruger Park Lodge remains the premier golf and bush estate in Hazyview, and at just 12 km from the Kruger National Park, is also an elegant home base for extraordinary expeditions.
