Plan a Christmas Break with Safari Lodge Accommodation in Mpumalanga
Understandably, the appeal of an opportunity to meet the Big Five, up close and personal, is one that can be pretty hard to resist at any time of the year and is certainly not limited to the Christmas holiday period. Whether this is your scene or not, given that the said summer break is now less than two months away, it is definitely time to start planning some form of seasonal getaway for the family, especially if they have set their hearts on one.
The summer vacation is, naturally, a chance to take an overseas trip or, if you prefer to support South African tourism and head, instead, for a local spot, then you could join the many thousands of South Africans who will be flocking to the country’s coastal resorts in search of a B&B and some sun, sea and sand. The Garden Route, too, can be a stunning choice if you have the time and a motor home. It is, however, safari lodge accommodation that a great many locals and international visitors will be busy looking for right now, and more than a few of them will be considering a visit to Mpumalanga and the iconic Kruger National Park.
Although the 324-metre tall, steel structure that is the Eiffel Tower is certainly an impressive sight, it is unlikely to provide as lasting a memory as that of a herd of giraffe in flight when spooked by some would-be predator. Neither can the gothic splendour of Notre Dame de Paris compare with the magnificence of an elephant herd enjoying a welcome cool bath and taking their refreshment at a watering hole. On a more mundane note, in light of the fact that it currently requires around sixteen rand to purchase a single euro, a day and night spent in the comfort of a luxury safari lodge could see your accommodation in this Mpumalanga wildlife paradise costing no more than an evening meal for the family on the Champs-Élysées. Not only that, but air tickets and travel visas are not exactly cheap today, either.
However, a bushveld experience offers a great deal more than just a cheap alternative to the Louvre, Les Invalides and the Jardin des Tuileries, it is a celebration of our heritage and a reminder of how important it has become to preserve it, given the impact of civilisation on Africa’s wildlife population and the huge toll exacted by hunters and poachers. A visit to any one of South Africa’s national parks and game reserves can certainly be just as unforgettable as a tour of a foreign capital. However, the former also offers the added assurance that you are providing some of the much needed support to ensure that these awesome wildlife reserves may continue to be enjoyed by future generations.
While the Eastern Cape, Free State and Limpopo all have much to attract the wildlife enthusiast, The Kruger National Park has long been the name that captures the imagination of most. It is its reputation that draws them from all over the world to Mpumalanga to book their accommodation at an exceptional hostelry, such as our safari lodge known as Lukimbi. So what exactly makes it so exceptional?
Firstly, our location in the southern region of the park means that our lodge is easily accessible. More importantly, once you have arrived, each luxuriously-furnished and spacious suite is designed to offer privacy, while connecting seamlessly with the beauty of the surrounding bushveld, combining air-conditioned comfort with a rustic experience. The daily itinerary offers the choice of bush walks, game drives and birdwatching all under the eye of experienced and knowledgeable guides and trackers.
Also an ideal venue for conferences and weddings, the 5-star accommodation at our superb safari lodge in Mpumalanga also includes fine dining, an award-winning wine list and an extensive choice of relaxing spa treatments, so you better book soon!
