Our grown up daughter and son are both on their own( hence our ability to do some travelling) . John is a keen antique book collector as well as restoring old cars, mainly English. Elche’and our two children are all very qualified chefs so our kitchen lends itself to lots of experimenting in the culinary arts.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The abovementioned home, in Da Gama Lake Estate, is situated midway between the towns of White River and Hazyview each approx 25 kms away. The main entrance gate to the Kruger National Park, Skukuza, is 20 kms from Hazyview, which is in the province of Mpumalanga. The immediate area is considered to be one of the most beautiful in SA, being close to the Park, historical towns, magnificent mountain ranges and scenery, and within 2 hours by road from the borders of Swaziland and Mocambique. There is an International airport, KMIA, within 30 minutes drive from our home, and adjacent to the city of Nelspruit, and which has a daily flight to Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Many interesting and historical towns with good shopping and eating places are all less than a leisurely one hour drive from our home, and a visitor to the area could spend many days without getting bored. It is a summer rainfall area which can be very hot, but is known for its balmy winter weather. Our immediate area is malaria free but precautions have to be taken when visiting the Park.
