Wonderful villa with paradise feeling

  • 4 of 5

We can highly recommend this wonderful villa set in the well-kept lush Sefapane park. Nicely decorated, clean and proper and the perfect place for a wonderful holiday that gave us chance to lazy relaxing at the pool, evening safaris and new year festivities in the friendly Sefapane restaurant. A place in paradise.

Reetdachhaus direkt am Krüger

  • 5 of 5

Im Februar 2015 durften wir (2 Ehepaare) das wunderschöne Haus in der ruhigen und sehr sicheren Anlage Sefapane in Phalaborwa bewohnen. Das Haus ist sehr groß, komplett ausgestattet und in einem sehr gepflegten Zustand. Auf der schönen Gesamtanlage mit 2 Pools befindet sich ein empfehlenswertes, fußläufig erreichbares Restaurant . Die Betreuung war in jeder Hinsicht bestens und wir können das Haus absolut empfehlen

Protea is een prachtige vakantiewoning op een schitterend park, vlakbij de Phalaborwa ingang tot het Kruger Park.

Phalaborwa is a town at the edge of the Kruger Park. It has an extensive shopping center with good supermarkets and many other stores. Phalaborwa has the reputation of being one of the cleanest cities in South Africa. It is not a big city but has all the amenities. There is a wide choice of restaurants, which are easily accessible from our home.

Our Protea House is 3 km at a small airport from. This small airport serves three times a day the tourists who come flying in from Johannesburg. These are small 29 seater aircraft and the only three flights a day there countries. Car rental companies like Avis, Europcar and Hertz have an office here.

Phalaborwa is situated 2km from the entrance to the Kruger National Park and therefore has been given the nickname "Gateway To The Kruger. Here are many options to enjoy a safari so you can create a self-drive safari with your rental car, but there are also many opportunities to book a safari in an open jeep safari, mountain bike, or on foot. You can opt for a morning or an evening safari. There is also the possibility to create a river safari on the Olifants River. Most tourists come to Phalaborwa because it's such a great base to visit the Kruger Park, but there is much more to enjoy.

1 hour drive from the magnificent Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon in the world. Here you can follow the beautiful Panorama Route with many attractions including oaThree Rondavels, Bourke's Lock Potholes and enjoy lunch in Graskop. Also this area is good for hiking and mountain bike tours.

Shortly before Blyde River Canyon is a Silk Farm, guided tours are available, with the manufacturing process of silk is shown. You can also buy ao beautiful duvet covers.

Magoebaskloof is a 1 1/2 hour drive from our house, you will find the pekoe tea plantation is back in operation for a few years. Atop a hill at the plantation is a teahouse where you have a wonderful view over the tea plantation and surrounding areas area.

This gap is a crocodile farm that is to visit and where can perform these animals. Just down the gorge are the Debengeni waterfalls where you can picnic and can use the braais are there. Daredevils can take a canopy tour where you "float" over the gorge. This area is also ideal for hiking and mountain biking. Along the way there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy while enjoying a snack and drink all the beauty. In this environment, a baobab, so big and old and so hollow that there is a small bar is made.

Moholoholo sanctuary for endangered animals is 1 hour away from Phalaborwa. They do very good work, and try if possible to turn the animals back into nature. Twice a day there is a guided tour, so you have the opportunity to see these animals and their behavior closely. For children this is a very interesting and fun outing.

Near Moholoholo is a reptile park, where you can view native snakes, iguanas and other reptiles. Here are also guided tours, but you can also choose your route.

Another center for cheetahs is HESC, located in Hoedspruit, about 1 hour away from us. In an open Jeep Safari you will be guided along the course cheetah, but there are also wild dogs, hyenas and leopards. This is also great fun for kids to do.

Towards Tzaneen is a 2000 year old baobab tree, which you can go and see a small fee. This trip can easily be combined with a visit to Tzaneen. This is a medium-sized town has a regional market function, you can find many things that you need in the many shops, museums, restaurants, etc.

Also in Hoedspruit you can find everything you need, this is a good place for buying souvenirs. Here are some nice shops and there are several restaurants where you can enjoy all the goodies they have to offer. You are already after 1 hour in Hoedspruit.

In our house is an information which you can find even more opportunities for beautiful trips, also opening hours and times of the various tours mentioned. We ourselves come 2x per year a month in Phalaborwa, so we can help you where needed.
