Natur pur / Tiere der Wahn - das richtige Haus

  • 5 of 5

Mitte Februar haben wir 5 Tage in diesem traumhaften, grosszügigen und genial gelegenen Haus verbracht. Die beiden sehr netten und freundlichen Angestellten haben uns iim Haus begrüßt und alles erklärt. . Die Lage dieses wunderschönen Hauses kann nicht besser sein. Restaurants, Cafés und Geschäfte sind in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen. Der Krüger Park liegt vor der Haustüre, es ist einfach nur fantastisch - wir waren 4 Tage jeweils einige Stunden im Park - es war Genuss pur. Die Ausstattung des Hauses lässt keine Wünsche offen. Mehr als genug Platz für 4 Personen. Alles super sauber und gepflegt. Reinkommen, Koffer auspacken und sofort wohlfühlen. die Schlafzimmer und Badezimmer sind gross und geräumig. Die Terrasse mit Schwimmbad - ein Genuss und sehr gut unterhalten (keine Langdistanzen!!) aber genau das Richtige bie 40 Grad- lädt zum verweilen und geniessen ein. Die Tiere, die zu Besuch kommen - Zebras waren in 1 Meter Distanz, Giraffen, Strausse, Wildschweine usw - sind für uns der absolute Höhepunkt gewesen - einfach nur traumhaft und genial!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Internet ist nicht verfügbar - für uns der einzige Minuspunkt - aber man hat ja Ferien. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt mehr als genossen und möchten uns auf diesem Weg recht herzlichen bedanken, dass wir ihr traumhaft schönes Haus mieten durften.

Nearest Airport
90 Kilometres
Car: recommended

The house is located in Marloth Park, a community about 15 minutes drive from Crocodilegate (Kruger National Park). Marloth park is the only community in which many animals, such as zebras, giraffes, impalas, etc. run around freely.

The Kruger National Park is one of the most famous national parks in the world and more than 100 years old. It measures over 350 km north-south and 60 km at the widest point. That's almost 2 million hectares. You can look for the big five (leopard, lion, rhinoceros, elephant, buffalo).

You can play golf in Malelane and Komatipoort.

The Blyde River Canyon is a 26-kilometer-long canyon 800 meters deep and mainly made of red sandstone.

Swaziland and the beautiful beaches of Mozambique are just an hour's drive away.
