This beautiful property is situated in Grietjie Private Nature Reserve, in the heart of Greater Kruger. Here you experience the thrill of living amongst Africa’s big 5. The land is 26 Ha in size and is full title ownership. The home has been lovingly renovated and offers 4 en-suite bedrooms, all opening onto the wrap-around veranda. There is a large undercover, open-air lounge with fire-place, a guest cloak and separate kitchen and dining room that leads out to an open patio from where you can enjoy the spectacular sunset views. There is also a boma and water hole.

The swimming pool is set in a lush, inviting garden with large trees and is a welcome reprieve from the summer heat.

There are multiple patio’s and verandas each offering a different view of the surrounding bushveld.

Four carports, a large shed which is ideal for storage or extra garaging space, plus a wendy house and two staff rooms forms part of the outbuildings. There are also 3 old cottages that could be renovated for additional accommodation, should it be required. Water to the property is supplied via a strong borehole and electricity is supplied via Eskom.

The property’s one boundary is formed by the seasonal Swartspruit, ensuring a lot of animal movement through the property. The homestead has been secured with elephant-proof electric fencing, creating a safe space to move around in.

Grietjie is a 2,800 ha Big 5 game reserve located within the Balule Region of the greater Kruger National park. Balule is a member of the APNR (Associated Private Nature Reserves), which is made up of Balule, Klaserie, Timbavati and Umbabat and is linked to the Kruger National Park. There are no fences dividing the individual reserves and thus game roam freely between Kruger and Balule, and several other private game reserves.

Grietjie is located on the Northern banks of the Olifants River. The other three neighbouring reserves on the northern bank of the Olifant river include: Olifants North, Parsons and Doreen.

Grietjie is made up of 118 full title portions ranging from 8 ha to 21 ha portions in size.

This Reserve accommodates all the different species of game to be found in the Kruger Park. There are regular sightings of “Big 5” animals, as well as a wide variety of plains game to be spotted on a daily basis. Game species include: Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo, Giraffe, Kudu, Nyala, Hippo, Hyena, Impala, Waterbuck, Warthog, Duiker, Steenbuck and many more… Grietjie has also recently received Protected areas status.

Water is provided via individual owners’ boreholes and electricity by Eskom. Owners can acquire a 1 ha fenced off area around their houses and pets are allowed. Commercialization is strictly controlled by only permitting 12 commercial licences to lodges/facilities in this area. There is good security and the reserve is well-managed.

Grietjie is located off the R40 heading towards Phalaborwa and approximately 80 km from the town of Hoedspruit and 20 km from Phalaborwa.
