Swagat, meaning 'Welcome' in all Sanskrit-based languages, is a modern & spacious self-catering chalet on the Gary Player designed golf resort. Located minutes from the world famous Kruger National Park and with easy access to the Blyde River Canyon and the Panorama Route, Swagat is your ideal holiday location. With no chalets on either side of us, Swagat feels private and an oasis from the bustle of everyday life.
Our unit has 3 bedrooms: two bedrooms are located downstairs while the third is upstairs. The master bedroom downstairs has an extra long king bed while the other two rooms have two singles each. The upstairs master bedroom has a private balcony overseeing the resort and the dramatic Drakensberg Mountains. We have an open plan living and dining room with updated furnishings along with a fully furnished kitchen. If you want, you can also use the outside braai/bbq on our large deck as you enjoy the sunsets. The unit has a dishwasher and is serviced daily so you do not have to worry about clean up. If you are not in the mood to cook, treat yourself to one of the many local restaurants that cater to all tastes and diets.
Families traveling with children will appreciate that one of three swimming pools on the resort is very close to our unit. Children can also easily be entertained by the mini-golf, tennis courts and kids' playground. the whole family can also spend time at the hippo hide and observe these marvelous creatures.
Most importantly, Swagat offers you the chance to self-drive into the Kruger Park and enjoy the safari of your dreams. We provide helpful self-drive safari tips as well as recommendations for safari tour operators who can take you on guided drives.

About this location
The Mpumalanga region
The Greater Kruger Region is home to amazing natural beauty in the form of the Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon in the world. Kruger National Park houses the broadest variety of animal and bird species in South Africa and remains a flagship national park for self drive safaris. Experience the diverse eco-regions of the Lebombo Mountains to the riverine forests to the savannah bushveld to the granite tops of this magical Park. With its extensive network of roads, camps and facilities, a self drive Kruger safari remains one of the most affordable ways to experience A wonderful safari.
The Blyde River Canyon along the Panorama Route offers amazing scenery, waterfalls and vistas for the nature lover. A day drive along the Panorama Route, easily accessible from Hazyview, is an ideal way to begin or end your Kruger safari.
Hazyview, a small town, remains a popular destination and so caters well to tourists. A number of good restaurants have opened up in the recent years along with very good supermarkets. A number of local safari tour operators offer guided tours into Kruger and the Panorama Route. Visitors can occupy themselves with activities from ab sailing, white water rafting, hot air ballooning, and quad biking, or spend a day at the Elephant Sanctuary. The Gary Player designed golf course on site is also a pleasant break for the avid golf enthusiast.
