Old-world charm is Plumbago’s saving grace

Hazyview - Plumbago is “your 5-star experience with affordable rates” only 20 minutes from the Kruger National Park and close to the Panorama Route.

Through the wrought-iron gates at the end of a bougainvillea-lined drive you will find Plumbago - as pretty as the flower that shares its name. Set on an avocado and banana farm, it sits above the plantation looking out to the Kruger National Park in the distance.

With 1940s jazz in the background, it has just the right accompaniment to the nostalgic, colonial-inspired setting.

There are charming air-conditioned rooms with sitting areas, en-suite bathrooms, tea trays and fine bed-linen which have the same casual gracefulness about them with subtle, natural tones, Jacobean print curtains, mahogany beds and abundance of vased and water-coloured flowers.

The elegant pool in the beautifully tended bird-filled garden allows for relaxation.

Beauty treatments, activities, transfers and safaris can be arranged. Children and pets by arrangement. Lunch and dinner bookings are essential. Fully licensed. Credit cards accepted.
