Iphupho Bush Lodge
Description Yolande and Grant Cuthill welcome you to their luxurious Iphupho Bush Lodge which is surrounded by wildlife. It is situated on the Hans Merensky Golf Estate where wildlife and golfers share the fairways. This Lodge is best suited for two couples or a family looking for that African Experience. The lodge is situated away from the fairways and is very private. It offers the visitor a unique opportunity to experience life in the wild while staying in a comfortable home. Hans Merensky Golf Estate is located in the city of Phalaborwa which is synonymous with the Kruger National Park Aand its bustling tourism industry. Also known as the valley of the elephants, the area is abundant with wildlife. The estate itself which started out as a hotel with golf course, was later converted into a residential estate. Because of the property's proximity to the eco sensitive area which surrounds it, only 79 sites were allowed to be sold for this purpose, each 1ha in size. The sites are full title and had strict guidelines for the building of bush lodges. The estate is now 95% complete and time is running out for would be investors. The estate boasts a large compliment of wildlife, including warthogs, giraffe, zebra, impala, crocodile, hippos, wild dogs, lion, leopard etc. The wildlife are allowed to freely roam the golf course and residential areas which are highly sensitive to their presence. The golf course is a 18 hole championship course designed by Bob Grimsdell. The golf course is complemented by a hotel with conference facilities and several restaurants. There is also a curio shop, hair dresser / beautician, pro shop and club house. The estate has excellent security, with 24 hour security patrol and boomed entrance with access control for residents and members. The finishes of the house are typical bush lodge, from thatch roof with 45deg pitch for that large double volume feeling, to the iron oxide screeded floors. The light fittings, vanity bowls in the toilets are all pottery from the local area. All timber in the lodge used for windows and doors including frames are made from sleeper would (Teak). The kitchen is custom made from Teak with high quality fitting, including granite tops. Location/Address/Phone No./Fax No.

Kruger Park - Letaba ( Website)
The idyllic Letaba Rest Camp is situated on a sweeping bend of the Letaba River, midway between the southern and northern boundaries of the Kruger National Park. The name means "river of sand", and the sandy riverbed is an excellent location for game viewing, particularly elephant, which thrive in the area. Letaba is a green oasis in the surrounding mopane veld, and remains a firm favourite with visitors. At night the stars overlook a symphony of sounds. Owls, nightjars, frogs, fruit bats, crickets and cicadas all vie to be heard, until the lion roars, then all are silent.
