Shaded by age-old Leadwood trees this owner-run property stands in a quiet part of the reserve, its tranquil air enhanced by classic colonial styling melded with subtle African influences. Five beautifully appointed luxury villas, each with their own rim-flow pool and wrap-around decks, have an en-suite bathroom, spacious bedroom and separate lounge, with views over to the local waterhole. Feast on gourmet food overseen by award winning chef Nico Verster, dining alfresco under the spectacular night sky. This is Big 5 terrain and a favoured habitat of the endangered African wild dog, the dry season bringing game to the waterhole in large numbers. Relax with a good book in the lounge or library, work out in the well-equipped gym or allow yourself to be cossetted in the spa where the Charlotte Rhys products are approved by Beauty without Cruelty.
A year round destination, but expect cooler weather in the Eastern and Western Capes during winter, between June and August. Mpumalanga stays warm year round with temperatures, humidity and rainfall all increasing in the summer months between October and March. The whales return to the waters around Hermanus from July to November, and the spring months of August and September are particularly colourful along the Garden Route.
The prime time for game viewing is generally the drier winter and spring months from April to September when animals frequent the waterholes. During the wetter summer months between October and March, animals can still be viewed but are more widely dispersed – from December to February there may be more sightings of newborn animals.
