An African palace

Grand, elegant and palatial, this impressive hotel has been inspired by the myth of a lost African kingdom. Rising like a mirage from the green landscape, it’s a fantastic place to stay for all ages. It's home to one of Africa's greatest water parks and there’s a real emphasis on adventure, with Pilanesberg Game Reserve, Kwena Gardens (crocodile sanctuary) and a zip line nearby. Yet there’s also a sense of relaxation with tranquil gardens laced with trickling streams.
