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 game farms; the last 40km stretch is a dirt road, a higher clearance vehicle is recommended, especially in the rainy season.
The self-catering cottage (76sqm) is nicely tucked away in the forest, it offers two equal size bedrooms, both with a single and a queen size bed. The open-plan living and kitchen area lead out to a covered stoep area. The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher, gas stove, micro wave, fridge/freezer and coffee maker (no oven). The lounge features a large fire place and 2 daybeds which can sleep a further 2. The bathroom has a shower, basin and toilet, there is a second toilet and a utility area with a washing machine.
The outside braai area is the ideal spot to enjoy a sun downer and relax around the braai. Wildlife, including kudu, eland, zebra and giraffe, roam the farm freely and the nearby wetland is a good spot to look for a variety of bird life.
Explore the farm on foot or mountain bike, game drives are available on request.
Apart from the Forest cottage, there is a campsite and another smaller cottage on the farm. The Syringa Sands Bush Camp Site (max 8 people/no overlanders) is at a distance of 2.5 km from the cottage and the Syringa Sands Mountain Cottage for 2 is located about 5km from the Forest Cottage.
