Take the whole family on a luxury holiday in Nyati Blyde Villas on the exclusive Blyde Wildlife Estate. This amazing private reserve covers more than 380 hectares (950 acres) and is located very close to Great Kruger National Park in one of the best areas in terms of wildlife experiences that South Africa has to offer.
Four kilometres (2.5 miles) of the beautiful Blyde River cuts through the Blyde Wildlife Estate, where the luxury villas are set in a secluded situation among typical bush vegetation. The villas create the setting for a perfect stay. They are all comfortably decorated with large living rooms complete with fireplaces, well-equipped kitchens and large panoramic terraces with pools. All buildings are well connected with paved roads, making it easy and safe to get around the estate. The whole area is walled and there is a guard at the gate 24 hours a day.
In case you would like to prepare some food yourself. There are excellent opportunities to do some food shopping in the nearby city of Hoedspruit. As you can have your own car and driver, it is easy to travel the 12 kilometres (8 miles) to get the supplies you need for cooking.
Comfort and gastronomy
Blyde Wildlife Estate's club house serves as a meeting point for all guests where they can enjoy a drink in the bar or on the spacious terrace. Breakfast is served in Blyde's comfortable restaurant where you can also order lunch and dinner. All the delicious dishes are prepared by the chef using only the best of local produce.
Accommodation and choice of house is decided at the time of booking and it is therefore important for us to know exactly what you require and need. The largest villas have two large bedrooms, each with a king-size bed and private bathroom. In addition there are one or two smaller double bedrooms that share a bathroom. The smaller villas have two bedrooms with large king-size beds and private bathrooms. All rooms are accessed through a shared living room. All bedrooms are fitted with air conditioning and fans. Outside, each villa has a private African Boma.
Blyde Wildlife Estate has its own restaurant which serves meals both inside and outside on the large, partly covered terrace. Furthermore, the restaurant has its own Boma which can be used to arrange a Braai, a traditional African barbecue evening. The kitchen is of a very high standard and serves a healthy and filling morning meal every weekday. Gourmet menus and more basic cafe-style dishes are on offer all the evenings of the week. The dishes are inspired by both traditional African and international cuisine. During the weekend the restaurant offers a generous breakfast buffet. In the evening a selection of lighter cafe-style dishes such as pizzas, salads and omelettes are served.
