Let’s go on a summer holiday!
A wealth of family fun to be had in Hoedspruit
Summer is one of the best seasons to be in the African bush. With the wilderness around us lush and green, the air filled with the songs of diverse birdlife and a rich variety of tourism attractions, places of interest and things to do and see on our doorstep, eKhaya Bush Villa is the perfect base from which to explore the Greater Kruger region.
It’s time for a break. Not just a weekend getaway but a proper, family break, treating your loved ones and friends to some serious downtime far from home, surrounded by the richness of the African wilderness. Enter eKhaya Bush Villa – your home from home in the Greater Kruger, perfectly positioning you on the edge of everything that makes this sensational part of South Africa so amazing.
With lots of room for family and friends in our wonderfully luxurious guest suites and a sumptuous breakfast included in our rates, all that there is to do is arrange some amazing activities and exciting trips that will show you the incredible scenery, phenomenal wildlife and introduce you to some of the places that make Hoedspruit and its surrounds so special.
Starting with your wonderful accommodation, eKhaya Bush Villa has been designed to pamper and spoil you at every turn, from your spacious and luxuriously appointed rooms to the wonderful lounge and deck areas and the sparkling pool which is perfect for cooling off in when the summer heat kicks in.
EKhaya is surrounded by the wonderful bush of the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate – home, as its name implies, to a diversity of plains game from antelope and zebra to giraffe, hyena and even leopard! At its centre is a beautifully pristine green belt of around 400ha that’s traversed by a series of sand roads, hiking and mountain bike trails, taking you away from all vestiges of urban existence and giving you a taste of remote, wild Africa.
You’re free to explore the estate on foot, on a mountain bike, in your own car, on a guided game drive or bush walk or even on horseback. But if you are wanting more in the way of wildlife experiences, then why not consider a morning or afternoon game drive on a nearby private game reserve? We can easily arrange this for you and your family and friends at an additional cost.
Of course, the Kruger National Park is just a short drive away and full-day guided game drives here are an absolute must. Talk to us about making a booking for you or just go and explore in your own vehicle or hire car.
Hoedspruit itself is more than worth exploring. This little bushveld town is the de facto safari capital of South Africa so you’ll see lots of people in khaki and game viewers wherever you go. There are some lovely restaurants and cafés on offer, so chat to us for our recommendations. A few of our favourites are the Thirsty Giraffe Pub and Grill, Hogfathers, The Brewery, Hoedspruit Cafe, Kasava Cafe, Yum Food Truck, Sleepers and The Hat and Creek.
Sometimes it’s better just to do nothing at all and stay put at eKhaya with a few bottles of fine South African wine, great conversation and some serious pool time. Whatever your fancy, we’re here to make your holiday truly special. See you soon!
