Description


Good lodge near Kiepersol with personal attention from the owners. Views out over the bush-clad hills, a swimming pool and short walks on the estate (many birds). There are two types of rooms: Standard rooms and the bigger Suites, and also a Honeymoon Suite. Chestnut is well situated for the various attractions in the area. Firstly, of course Kruger Park (Numbi Gate 20 minutes), the rather touristy but quite adequate Shangana Cultural Village and a number of golf courses. It’s also a springboard for visiting the attractions along the so-called Panorama Route, such as Blyde Rivier Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes (90 minutes) and the Sudwala Caves. Hot-air balloon flights can be arranged nearby.
