Blyde Hillside House

Nestled beneath the breath-taking Drakensberg Mountains Blyde Hillside House offers travellers a unique bush experience whilst soaking up the beauty of the natural surrounds.

Kampersrus is a historical town in Limpopo, secluded within the exquisite foothills of Marieskop Mountain. This mountain range looms over the little town protectively, providing breath-taking views from just about anywhere within its borders.

The town is situated in a biosphere that includes the Kruger National Park and part of the Drakensberg Mountain Range, as well as the famous Blyde Canyon. This makes it a very valuable member of the natural wealth of the Limpopo Province, as it showcases some of its most spectacular areas. As such, it is close to a number of nature reserves and parks, in which the untouched fauna and flora of South Africa can be savoured at leisure.

The Blyde River Dam is close to the town and is significant for being the locale of the Kadishi Waterfall. This is one of very few waterfalls in the world that are made from particular variety of limestone called tufa. Blyde Canyon is the third-largest canyon on the planet, and is also a must for visitors to Kampersrus.

In addition to its natural value, Kampersrus is well-equipped with the necessary shops, restaurants and pubs, which invite visitors to enjoy the local hospitality while languishing in the serene beauty. Hoedspruit is less than 30 kilometres away and the Eastgate Airport is 35 kilometres from Kampersrus.

Set in the tranquil surroundings of a large landscaped garden which blends itself with its open lawn, large trees and backed by the magnificent Drakensberg Mountains. The property is situated along the majestic Panoramic Route of Mpumalanga/Limpopo Province, and is in close proximity to the entrance of the Blyde River Canyon and 30 minutes away from the Orpen gate of the Kruger National Park. The Blyde Hillside House is 10 kms from Blyde River Canyon Lodge.

Great Location. Beautiful Climate. Incredible Mountain Views.

A blend of Colonial and African decor compliments this unique and elegant luxurious four bedroom, four bathroom house which also includes a lounge, dining room, bar, TV lounge and a fully equipped kitchen. The fourth bedroom, which is our luxury double bed private Garden room with shower en suite, has doors leading out to the garden and swimming pool, and is attached to the main house with its own outside entrance. There are also BBQ (Braai) facilities available, both wood and gas. Please bring your own wood. The house is fully serviced. Blyde Hillside House is set in the tranquil surroundings of landscaped gardens, large trees and is backed by the magnificent Drakensberg Mountains. Hear the lions roar and the hyena cry in the silence of the African night.

Max 6 guests. Extra persons on request.

The property is available as self-catering. Bed & Breakfast is available on request. Full English breakfasts can be served at either Blyde Hillside House or Blyde River Canyon Lodge. Delicious dinners are served at the Blyde River Canyon Lodge which is available by arrangement. If you would like to book for breakfast or dinners please let us know.
