A girl needs her villa

Gone are the days of roughing it in the bush. Mhondoro private villa is our ‘home-away-from-home’ because every Sandton girl needs her amenities (with a private yoga room thrown in the mix).

Mhondoro Villa is part of the luxurious 5-star safari lodge, Mhondoro Game Lodge, located within the 35 000 hectare, malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg. Perfect for groups of friends, the villa provides a luxurious yet comfortable home-away-from-home.

The Villa sleeps six people, which comprises of 2 Deluxe Suites; a 2-bedroom Executive suite; a 2-bedroom Family suite and a romantic Honeymoon suite.

The Villa is a completely private and exclusive lodge on its own, but if needed, access to all the facilities of the Main Lodge, including its unique underground game viewing hide, are within short walking distance. The ultimate in luxury and privacy, it has been furnished in warm, earthy colours, mixing European elegance and understatement with vibrant African flair.

The magnificent Master Suite has a spacious bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers, and a separate private lounge and study that offers a calm sanctuary in which to enjoy a book. There are another two bedrooms, which both come with en-suite bathrooms, and wooden decks with views of the lodge waterhole and the wilderness beyond.

The large, open-space kitchen, dining and lounge area provides ample opportunity for relaxation and entertainment, leading out to the heated pool and sun loungers. On balmy summer evenings, the Outdoor Lounge sets the scene for relaxing sun downers while watching ‘resident’ elephants stop by the waterhole for a drink, while a cosy indoor and outdoor fireplace means that guests can enjoy the magic of the wilderness even on chilly nights. A private, fully-equipped gym and yoga room are ideally located within the Villa, for those wishing to start the day with a rejuvenating workout, yoga or Pilates session.
