Property description

A luxury thatched villa on an enclosed, secure, golf & wildlife estate with fantastic facilities, 10 mins from the world renowned Kruger National Park. A magnificent base for a most wonderful Safari experience. Commanding the highest point on the whole estate, Phabeni offers premium views!
We overlook the 5th tee of a superb 9-hole (18 tee)Gary Player designed golf course complete with grazing impala, troops of monkeys, hippo pool and hide with growing resident family of hippo and crocodile. Imagine warm relaxing evenings & golden sunsets from your 40 square meter teak deck. The house has a fully fitted granite kitchen with all modern appliances, sitting & dining room and the sumptuous bedrooms each have an en-suite with fitted granite tops, power shower & bath. The master bedroom leads through French doors onto a private balcony. A thatched private carport affords space for 2 cars and the massive decking incorporates a large in-built barbecue with work-surface & seating for 8 people.

Kruger Park Lodge: Kruger Park Lodge is a beautiful, secure and private estate with a Gary Player designed golf course and resident impala, hippo and monkeys. The house is set in a perfect location for Kruger National Park and magnificent safaris being about 10 minutes drive away. With many sight-seeing trips such as God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes in the Blyde River Canyon, the Cheetah Sanctuary, Pilgrim's Rest and Shangana Cultural Village to name but a few, there are plenty of things to do in the area and beyond. If you fancy a day at the beach, with the opening of the Mozambique borders you can be enjoying sun, white beaches and the warm Indian Ocean 1.5 hours away. There is an array of sporting activities for the restless, arranged from and within Kruger Park Lodge, as well as the opportunity to just relax, do nothing and enjoy the house and your holiday in a luxurious setting. Settle back on your decking, a cool sun-downer in hand and appreciate the drama of your own golden African sunset

Kruger National Park: The Kruger National Park, 10 minutes drive from Kruger Park Lodge, is a true haven of the wild and one of the great natural sanctuaries of the world. The 'Big 5'(Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino and Buffalo) are present in abundance as well as cheetah, monkeys, giraffe and hippo alongside many other species of mammal, bird and reptile. The thrill of a sighting - perhaps a lioness with cubs, a shy bush-buck hiding among riverside bush or a leopard stalking in the warm late evening while vultures glide overhead - is the most memorable of experiences. Take an early morning or evening game drive with an experienced and knowledgeable guide in an open-topped landrover at one of the magnificent neighbouring private game reserves. Alternatively, explore the wildlife paradise at your own pace in your own vehicle through Kruger National Park and its 2000km of path, keeping your eyes open for action - incredibly exciting!

Car: Necessary

Kruger Park Lodge is 12Km from Kruger National Park and 45Km from Kruger Mpumulanga International Airport (MQP).

All the major car hire companies have offices at Johannesberg International Airport (a beautiful and scenic four to five hour drive on excellent roads) and Mpumalanga International Airport. (a forty minute drive). We are located within an hours drive of all the 'must see's' and 'must do's' in the vicinity of the Kruger National Park (God's Window Escarpment, Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrim's Rest, Kapama Cheetah Sanctuary and much, much more!) There are a number of excellent golf courses in this area.

In short Phabeni is ideally located for safari, golf , sporting activities and all sightseeing attractions.

Other Activities: game drives, safari, golf, hot air ballooning,sight-seeing, river rafting - everything you could imagine.

Golf: The house is ideally situated on the 5th and the 14th tee which makes it an ideal 'watering hole' whether you are playing 9 or 18 holes under the African sun - just park up your golf buggy next to the deck.

All the holes are very challenging -just check out 'Vultures Drop' taking care to watch out for crocs and hippos!

We are ideal for golf breaks as there are some excellent golf courses within driving range, the nearest being the top class Sabi River Sun only 5 minutes away.

Kruger Park Lodge has recently upgraded its Driving Range which is two minutes walk from the house.

There is a well-stocked Pro-shop on-site and clubs, buggies and caddies can be hired from here.
