About Iphupho Bush Lodge

This Lodge is best suited for two couples or a family looking for that African Experience. The lodge is situated away from the fairways and is very private.

It offers the visitor a unique opportunity to experience life in the wild while staying in a comfortable home.

Hans Merensky Golf Estate is located in the city of Phalaborwa which is synonymous with the Kruger National Park Aand its bustling tourism industry. Also known as the valley of the elephants, the area is abundant with wildlife.

The estate itself which started out as a hotel with golf course, was later converted into a residential estate. Because of the property’s proximity to the eco sensitive area which surrounds it, only 79 sites were allowed to be sold for this purpose, each 1ha in size.

The estate boasts a large compliment of wildlife, including warthogs, giraffe, zebra, impala, crocodile, hippos, wild dogs, lion, leopard etc. The wildlife are allowed to freely roam the golf course and residential areas which are highly sensitive to their presence.

The golf course is a 18 hole championship course designed by Bob Grimsdell. The golf course is complemented by a hotel with conference facilities and several restaurants.

There is also a curio shop, hair dresser / beautician, pro shop and club house.

The estate has excellent security, with 24 hour security patrol and boomed entrance with access control for residents and members.

The finishes of the house are typical bush lodge, from thatch roof with 45deg pitch for that large double volume feeling, to the iron oxide screeded floors.

The light fittings, vanity bowls in the toilets are all pottery from the local area. All timber in the lodge used for windows and doors including frames are made from sleeper would (Teak).

The kitchen is custom made from Teak with high quality fitting, including granite tops.

      The whole place is of such beauty and space, we loved it . What can be improved is a toaster will be a nice addition as well all the pans can be replaced and some braai utensils can be added. Your weber has also seen better days. A pity how dry it is with the drought at the moment.

      A real bush hideaway. Lovely cottage although a little tired and in need of some maintenance. Surprised that it was not serviced.
