Stay for the bush at Karkloof Safari Villas

March 30, 2018, Author: Bianca Spinner

Along the winding misty roads of the Midlands Meander is this majestic sanctuary. Showing off with mountainous backdrops and evergreen scenery, it’s quite difficult to challenge such natural beauty. Having just undergone new ownership, all eyes are on these sixteen secluded villas.

The new owner is Colleen Glaeser, who started off in the telecommunications industry and moved into security and surveillance when she saw the need for intelligent, tailor-made surveillance solutions in Southern Africa. She met with the global president of AxxonSoft and realized it was the match she was looking for.

The rest is history. Today, AxxonSoft Southern Africa is considered one of the top security and surveillance companies in the region. So, imagine her delight when she merely visited the reserve for surveillance and ended up owning a once in-a-lifetime property.

It’s no wonder this location has such a reputable reputation; it’s the most striking, luscious landscape – 3000 hectares in size! You’ll fall in love with the peaceful space. With views that will take your breath away, it’s no wonder nearly 300 bird species reside here.

You’ll wake up to the songs of the trumpeter hornbill and fall asleep to the reverberations of the waterfall. Each villa is in the middle of the forest; expect complete solitude and unlimited exclusivity. The doors and shutters open fully, allowing you to feel even closer to nature.

Rising to the jaw-dropping views that overlook the hypnotizing scenery from your villa, it’s no wonder this property is championed. Time drifts away as you sip on your cappuccino and focus on the environment and all its glory.

There are also a vast range of activities available; game drives, romantic picnics, bush braais, bike riding, bird watching, guided walks, hikes to the Karkloof Waterfall, fishing at Albert Falls Dam as well as exceptional day spa packages at the Karkloof Safari Spa.

They have flourishing giraffe, rhino, buffalo and leopard in the reserve, so expect to be bowled over.

Three exclusive packages will be on offer to guests and range from R 3950 per person sharing to R 10 200 per person sharing. Each package has been carefully created to offer all guests a spectacular and bespoke experience.
