In the electronic era of talking fridges that give you
dietary advice, man has become more and more detached from nature. Confused by whether that banjo-playing
squirrel is a robot or real or whether said fridge is going to know if you
cheat on your diet or not – it’s all a little overwhelming. Curb that claustrophobia and let Groupon take
you back to simpler times: Pay R940 for a two night stay for two people,
including a hot stone massage and pedicure each at the rustic Ingwe Historical
If you’re happier when marching to the beat of your own drum circle, the Ingwe Historical Lodge is the ideal location to escape from city confines and take time off from tedious town routines. Set 3km outside of Phalaborwa, one of the Kruger National Parks’ gates, this lodge is rich with history and bursting with nature’s most beautiful forms of entertainment. Mirroring the original layout of the chalets built by Icke Lombard– one of the first white settlers in the Lowveld – the charming two-man chalets are built in a circle facing inwards, keeping it cosy and protective against any wild predators.As a self-catering unit, bundle up your cuddle buddy, some groceries and your adventurous spirit and get ready to experience the African bush in all its natural beauty. Charming and rustic, the lodge boasts a swimming pool, tuck shop and some great braai facilities – making it the ideal spot to sit down with a fresh brew and braai to your heart’s content while taking in spectacular sunsets and feeling of absolute freedom.
