Looking for peace and tranquility? Syringa Sands is the perfect destination for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Situated on the Kransberg plateau in the malaria free Waterberg in Limpopo, you will find us halfway Vaalwater and Thabazimbi, 38km from the Marakele National Park gate and 14km from the Welgevonden South Gate and Kololo lodge. The route to the gate is a scenic journey passed several large game farms; the last 40km stretch is a dirt road, a higher clearance vehicle is recommended, especially in the rainy season.
The Bush Camp Site is beautifully located on the edge of a large farm dam. With the Seven Sisters mountain range in the background and a view of the dam and wetland. The site allows for great sunsets, good bird watching and game viewing. Wildlife, including zebra, impala, bushbuck and giraffe, roam this area freely and the nearby wetlands are a haven for a variety of bird life with kingfishers being regular summer visitors.
There is only one campsite on the 1,000 HA farm - suitable for up to 8 campers (4 tents/4 cars). With your booking you automatically reserve the entire camp and you and your party will have exclusive use of the site. There is a neat thatched ablution facility with one toilet and one (hot and cold gas geyser) shower and dish washing area. Campers can make use of the large thatched Lapa, dining table and chairs as well as the braai area.
If you are keen on some activity; there is a demarcated walking trail from the bridge; the dam offers some nice bass fishing, swimming and boating. Explore the farm on foot or mountain bike, game drives are available on request.
Apart from the campsite there are 2 cottages on the farm; the Syringa Sands Forest Cottage for 4 at a distance of 2.5 km from the camp site and the Syringa Sands Mountain Cottage for 2 at a distance of 5km from the forest cottage. Guests staying in the cottages may also visit the dam for some fishing and swimming.
