The villa for 6 people is located in the middle of one of the most beautiful regions of South Africa and is part of Zandspruit Bush and Aero Estate. The holiday house is at 10,000 m2 own ground which provides peace and privacy during your holiday. On the Estate a lot of (harmless) wild animals can be foiund such giraffes, zebras, monkeys and gnus. Imagine, relaxing in your private pool while you enjoy the beautiful animals around you and the view from the terrace on the Drakensbergen.

Villa Blaaskans is surrounded by its own nature reserve where you can find a lot of (harmless) animals, even around the house it’s possible to spot wild animals! Withn the near surroundings of the villa there are a lot of nature reserves where the Big 5 can be found. In the different nature reserves it’s possible to reserve jeep safaris or safari walks.

Kruger Park

Hoedspruit is the final location on the way to the Kruger Park. Therefore it’s only a 45 minute drive before you can imagine yourself between the elephants, lions, leopards and other wild animals. The information package offers you the opening hours, a map and you discover which way you can travel through the Kruger P ark.
