Our holiday home in South Africa is called Blaaskans, which means in the South African language: a moment to breathe / to relax. That´s what we are trying to achieve with a stay at Villa Blaaskans, to unwind completely, but still enjoying the beautiful nature and the 'real' South Africa.
Villa Blaaskans was completed in early 2012 and is located on the outskirts of the city of Hoedspruit (Limpopo). The six-person villa is located in one of the most beautiful areas of South Africa and is part of the Zandspruit Bush and Aero Estate. The holiday home is located on 1,000 m2 private ground, which makes it an excellent place for ultimate peace and privacy during your vacation. At the Estate is many (harmless) wildlife like giraffes, zebras, monkeys and monkeys and gnus. Imagine: relaxing in the private pool while you are enjoying the beautiful creatures around you and the view from the terrace to the Drakensberg.
