Our home

A typical African style bushvilla with a thatch roof and several big shaded terraces around. A garden that secures privacy where the impalas, waterbuck and wharthogs are regular guests and the elephants and giraffes sometimes drink from the pond. A stunning view overlooking the famous Kruger National park.
There is a livingroom, dining room with open plan kitchen and 3 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms in African style. The house is situated on the 4 star graded Bush Estate( www.silonque.com )where the animals roam freely. The estate has a tennis court and 2 swimming pools. On the stoep is a private splashpool and a braai (BBQ) to live the African lifestyle. Our house is for those who love the pure unspoiled nature. Also see: www.umoja-kruger.com

Property features

Who we are

  1. We, Serge, Chantal and Taro Settels, live in the Netherlands and have bought the house in 2014 after previously travelling around South Africa for many times. We became acquainted with this house during a house swap with the previous owners and fell in love with it. We try to spend as many school holidays in the house and also rent it out commercially, both privately as well as via the estate.
    Since it is a holiday home, house swapping does not have to be simoultaniously for us. Also we are now still enjoying the African Bush but are always interested in other locations, especially in the long run.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is situated 8 km north-east of Phalaborwa (4 km tar road and 4 km dirt road.) The bush estate is adjacent to the kruger National park. In Phalaborwa you will find a shopping mall, good restaurants, sport facilities, 18 hole golf course (the famous Hans Merenski golf club where you can play golf between giraffes).
You can go on all kinds of safari's in the Krugerpark or take a beautiful scenic drive on the Panorama route's, or Tzaneen with the beautiful Magoebaskloof. Hoedspruit with its numerous wildlife rescue centers is not far away and a river safari on the Olifants River is a must to do. But most of all : just enjoy your "stoep" and see the impala's, waterbucks and giraffes roaming in your garden.
Phalaborwa, is safe and the year round sunny and warm.
Phalaborwa is also called the town of two summers.
