With a population of 5.8 Million people there is a diversity of all cultures which is evident by taking a city tour through this metropolis. Visiting the Apartheid Museum and Soweto we get a better picture of what this great African city can provide.

Both the manicured Bushwillow and the Firethorn 18 hole courses are found on the property and either can be played depending on the day of booking.

Day 04: Zebula Golf Course (B, D) (Mabula Game Lodge Lodge)

Set within the typical African Bushveld and surrounded by wildlife, the Zebula Golf Course is an 18 hole course that offers a little something different. Designed by Peter Matkovich. He followed the natural contours of the area and in doing so shows no impact on the natural environment, the course promises to be both challenging, playable and enjoyable for all levels.

Day 05: Bela-Bela to Phalaborwa (B, D) (428km)

Travelling in a northerly direction, our route passes through the small town of Mokopane and Tzaneen. Arriving mid-afternoon at our Lodge for the next two nights, the rest of the day is spent at leisure before an included night game drive in the Kruger National Park or a quick 9 holes before sunset. Should you opt for a quick 9 holes on own account its strongly advised to return to the club house before sunset as there are wild animals roaming the course after dark such as the resident Giraffe, Hippo and Crocodiles.

Day 06: Hans Merensky Golf Course

The Hans Merensky par 72 championship course was established in 1967, designed by Bob Grimsdell and named after a German geologist that arrived seeking his fortune in 1904. The course promises to show its reputation in being where golf meets wildlife.

Most of the day is dedicated playing this one of a kind course after returning from a morning open vehicle game drive in the Kruger National Park. Opt in for a night game drive in the Kruger National Park on own account before settling in for the evening.

Day 08:  Sabie River Sun Golf Course

The Sabie River Sun Golf course, located in the small town of Hazyview offers an 18 hole par 71 of only 5618 meters. Only 4 of the 18 holes do not have water hazards making for a challenging experience. As the course is located at the Kruger National Park, be aware of the resident Hippo and Crocodile in the main dam on the course.

Most of the day is spent at leisure enjoying a full 18 hole round and relaxing late afternoon at the Hotel pool before sunset.

Day 09: Kruger National Park (Gecko Lodge) (B, D)

The Kruger National Park at 19 485 km² is one of Africa’s largest game reserves and is home to all of the Big 5 with regular sightings of all the Big 5 in a day due to its high density of wildlife more specifically around the Skukuza area
