Overview

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

‘Big Five’ game drives

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 stay at Swagat @ KPL is a winning choice

  • 4 of 5

Our return stay, with the family at Swagat @ KPL was as pleasant and enjoyable as the previous 2 times. Ideal to set up base to travel to Kruger National Park. The setting has a golf course, hippo hide, 2 pools (one close to the unit), among other things. The unit is free standing and creates an impression of being secluded, even when the lodge is busy. A lovely unit, well maintained and modernly furnished and kitted. A couple, family or even a group of 6 will be very comfortable here. It is the ideal location to set up base to do a Panorama route tour, and visit the nearby attractions. Your host has prepared an informative welcome pack outlining the various activities, and recommendations. If you are driving to the destination from Johannesburg, then a comprehensively detailed direction list is provided. After a tiring day of travelling or exploring, you will welcome the luxury and comfort of the unit.

Lovely house - perfect for Kruger Park

  • 4 of 5

This is our third stay at Kruger Park Lodge and our first at Swagat. The house was beautifully presented and furnished. Perfectly situated within the grounds for a short stroll to the Hippo Hide. Booking was easy and straightforward. I also liked being able to check details etc using the Home Away App. The Park facilities were the usual great standard and the staff friendly and cheerful.

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.

Map

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.
