Take a swift drive away from the Kruger National Park and you will be forgiven for believing you have been transported to a different country entirely. Standing on a 64-hectare farm and at the end of a Jacaranda-lined dirt road, the 200-year-old Highgrove House boutique hotel is ready to show born-romantics the dreamy country getaway of a lifetime.
With Highgrove House Luxury Tours conveniently operating from the hotel, visitors will be shuttled from and to OR Tambo and Kruger Mpumalanga Airport. Day trips to the picturesque Panorama Route and Kruger National Park are available at the snap of a finger, while animal interaction tours to Moholoholo Sanctuary and the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre are also on offer.
With only eight elegantly decorated suites, this five-star country hotel has made personalised and dedicated service a priority. Guests can choose to stay in the Standard Luxury Suites, the Executive Garden Suites, or the Executive Orchard Suites. Spend a morning working up a sweat on the numerous trails, and prolong the afternoon with a swim or treatment at the Orchard Spa before dinner at Highgrove’s award-winning restaurant, The Royal.
