Golf estates abound in South Africa but none can match Zebula, a stunning and totally unique lifestyle destination a mere 2 hours’ drive north of Johannesburg in the magnificent malaria-free Waterberg region of Limpopo Province.
Located on 1600 hectares of pristine bushveld in the shadow of the Waterberg mountains, Zebula commands a most spectacular setting. Undulating, indigenous tree-covered hills and wide-open grasslands are punctuated with frequent dams and waterholes – a diverse landscape that supports a wide variety of game, birds and small wildlife.
Upmarket luxury homes are tastefully designed and privately positioned so as not to impose on the surroundings. The Peter Matkovitch-designed golf course respects the environment, following the natural contours of the terrain, a masterful symphony of indigenous bush and landscaped areas. Surprising for its bushveld location, water supply is both abundant and sustainable, ensuring that the quality of the greens is unrivalled and that playing surfaces are always top notch. Unwind in peaceful serenity
The Bush Lodge is situated within walking distance from the Main Clubhouse. Each room is romantically set in a cosy chalet, overlooking either the Golf Course or the Bushveld. This setting enables guests to enjoy the Main Clubhouse with its many facilities, yet remain wonderfully private.
Each standard bedroom features:
Comfortable Oversized Kingsize OR two 3/4 beds
Luxurious en-suite full bathroom
Tea & Coffee station
We also offer Deluxe bedrooms which features all of the above mentioned facilities, but also includes:
A cosy Fireplace
Inside and Outside Shower
Experience the best of both worlds!
Waterberg Lodge is part of Zebula Golf Estate and is located in a quiet corner of the reserve, ensuring an undisturbed bushveld experience for its guests. The lodge features 16 beautifully decorated rooms, Restaurant, Bar, Conference Room as well as a Jacuzzi and a rim-flow swimming pool. Treat yourself to a steaming cup of coffee on your private balcony overlooking a waterhole, or lounge around the pool sipping a refreshing cocktail – and experience the sound of the African Bushveld!
Lodge guests can also enjoy the variety of activities and services offered by the Zebula Golf Estate. Choose from golfing, game drives and walks, live interaction with our elephants, felines and reptiles, or go for some pampering at the Spa at Zebula.
