About the property

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Settle into our modern and comfortable three bedroom villa within the confines of a secured resort and just 10 minutes from South Africa's flagship Kruger National Park (KNP). Our self-catering unit, in Hazyview, offers a fully equipped kitchen with spacious open plan living and dining rooms, three full bathrooms, and a large outdoor deck with braai/BBQ. One en-suite bedroom has a king bed, another has two twin beds with its own bathroom while the third en-suite upstairs has two twin beds. All bedrooms have air-conditioning and block out curtains. Our self-catering kitchen will meet all your needs including a coffee machine, toaster, microwave, electric kettle, stove, oven and dishwaher. We also offer access to wi-fi from within our unit.

Sip your favorite drink while enjoying the South African sunset over the mountains from the romantic, shaded balcony off the upstairs bedroom. Among the resort’s many amenities are a golf course, tennis courts, a hippo hide and plenty of kids' activities. Our villa is a minute’s walk from one of the resort’s three swimming pools (not the main one so less busy) and close enough to the hippo hide to hear them grunt at night. The villa is located near three supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and shops. Only 10 minutes away, KNP’s Phabeni entrance gate is one of the few that offer guided night drives to safari enthusiasts not staying inside the game reserve.

The open plan living and dining rooms give the downstairs an airy feel with views of the outside and easy access to the patio via two sliding doors. A large wooden deck with built-in grill/braai is an ideal entertainment area and a lovely way to the end the day. Double covered parking is available. A nine-hole 18 Tee Gary Player designed golf course, three swimming pools, and a restaurant are also on site. All bed linens and bathroom towels are provided. The lounge offers a wide selection of DStv channels on our flat screen TV.

Guests have access to all the following amenities provided at The Kruger Park Lodge:

On-site restaurant

Bird watching

4 tennis courts

Hippo hide

Putt putt/mini-golf

About Owner/Property Manager

We are Heeten and Jenny and we own Swagat at Kruger Park Lodge. Heeten is from South Africa and Jenny is from Sweden. We have two kids and have enjoyed the wildlife and safaris for many years. We enjoy self-drive safaris and believe this is a wonderful way to enjoy the world famous Kruger National Park.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Hazyview

Owning Swagat at Kruger Park Lodge is realizing a dream we have had for many years. Both our families love wildlife and are passionate about going on safaris -- we have been on safari in Kenya, Tanzania, and -- of course -- South Africa. We are so 'wild' about Kruger National Park in particular, that we even got married at a bush camp in the park!

The Kruger Park Lodge is a development with many amenities and this remains one of the main reasons we bought a place here. The place is immaculate and well maintained.

What makes this lodge unique

We wanted to find a home that gave us easy access to the Kruger Park. The Phabeni Gate is 10 minutes away so we can enter the park easily and come back to relax at the lodge.

To us, being in Kruger is at once peaceful and exhilarating: it is wonderful to be disconnected from the buzz of the internet and telephones, and to just take in the unique sounds, sights, smells, the air. And nothing beats the excitement of being the ones to spot a leopard or hear a herd of 200 buffalo thundering past the car. There is truly a satisfaction and excitement in spotting animals on your own, feeling like you are really in a wildlife documentary.

A peaceful sanctury

  • 5 of 5

Writing this makes me wish I was back at the oasis in what has to be one of the world's most beautiful locations. It is so rare to have a visit to an adventurous part of the world run so smoothly: from the detailed directions provided by the host, to the warm welcome upon arrival. There is a genuine sense that the staff care from 'hello' to farewell. The kitchen perfectly appointed with everything you need, quality appliances making it easy to cook at home. Amazingly you can even order in from nearby. Safari style for those looking to relax and reconnect with nature rather than online. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are great, the spaces are cool in the heat. I so wish I could be quietly viewing hippos splash about, or playing golf on the magnificent course, or simply sitting on the deck sipping on a Savannah. I will make this special place my Kruger Park stay for now and forever.

A peaceful sanctury

  • 5 of 5

It was such a rare pleasure to have everything go seamlessly when on a adventure. From the detailed descriptions of how to get there to an extremely user-friendly way to get around to local spots. This is luxury safari style with the benefit of being able to cook in an actual kitchen and keep thing cool in proper refrigeration. While comfortably and luxurious, one feels at one with nature, not an imposter but a participant. As I write this review I wish so much that I was sitting on the front porch sipping a Savannah and watching the sunset, or mid day quiet visits to see hippos cavort in the river. The space is cool, comfortable, sensible, stylish. An ideal escape from the world's madness and sadness. And if you so wish, you can swim (which I did) or even play a round of Golf on what has to be one of the most magnificent courses I've seen. This will be the Kruger oasis I return to for future visits.

location wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

the location is so close to everything at Kruger! Only downside is the wifi arrangement (buying data from the front desk that then clonks out after a few hours ) really sucks. Otherwise, great place.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear about your wifi troubles. The wifi is relatively new and we are doing our best given our location and being part of a resort. The wifi does cut off after the amount of data bought is used up.

Beautiful Location in Hazyview

  • 5 of 5

Kruger Park Lodge is is very safe, and a beautiful, quiet location. We enjoyed seeing the impala, hippos, and monkeys at the resort. There are several restaurants and shops nearby. Heeten did a wonderful job of recommending places to dine, shop, and explore. We didn't visit any of the local restaurants, as we ate dinner both nights on the beautiful deck. There was plenty of room for our family of 5. I was super excited to see the house had a dish washer and dish washer tabs! My husband can't wait to go back and golf on the beautiful golf course.

Car: necessary

The on-site Hippo Hide is a fun and relaxing way to observe hippos in the water. Our lodge is ideal to explore the Panorama Route and the Blyde River Canyon -- the third largest canyon in the world. Add fun activities likes zip lining, white water rafting, and a visit to an elephant sanctuary or a cheetah farm to your trip.
