A touch of autumn delight descends upon eKhayaIt's a lovely time of year to come and visit us here in South Africa's lowveld.
Autumn is in full swing here at eKhaya Bush Villa and the bush is beginning to get dry again, in spite of late rains. All of the lush green grass of summer is gone, meaning that you are able to see further in the bush around the villa and along the roads around us.
It’s a lovely time of year to come and visit us here in South Africa’s lowveld, with the days becoming cooler and the mornings and evenings crisp and clear.
Out on our game drives in the Kruger National Park and in the surrounding private game reserves that make up the Greater Kruger region the viewing is becoming easier thanks to the bush thinning out and the lack of water means that waterholes become hot spots. You’ll need additional layers on your game drives now, so don’t forget to bring a jacket or fleece!
Here at our lovely little villa we’re gearing up for the cooler mornings and evenings, with log fires in our boma offering the perfect way to stay warm and experience the wonder of African nights out under the stars, with blankets and, of course, a good pre-dinner drink.
We’ll be putting some nice, warming dishes together for our autumn and winter menus so that if you decide to have lunch and dinner with us you’ll be able to sample our wonderful home-cooked meals, lovingly prepared by Combricia and Isobel.
And at the end of the day, full and happy, you’ll be able to slip between our wonderful cotton sheets and snuggle under our beautiful down duvets for a wonderful nights’ sleep to the inimitable sounds of the African bush. We hope to see you soon!
