Legend Golf & Safari Resort


Deep in the heart of the Waterberg in Limpopo, on 22 00 hectares of malaria-free Entabeni Safari Conservancy lies Legends Golf and Safari Resort, one of the most innovative golf and safari developments in the world.


At the heart of the resort is Africa’s most innovative golf course: the world’s first championship Signature Course complete with Signature Course Clubhouse – the place where great golfing memories are relived and legendary stories begin.
Guests visiting Legends Golf & Safari Resort have the choice of staying in the centrally located Resort Suites or venturing further afield into the bush in one of the magnificent Entabeni Safari Conservancy Lodges.

All the properties cater to the modern traveller while respecting and embracing the wonders of the surrounding South African bushveld.


Cuisine

The incredible dining experience is one of the hallmarks of Legend’s Golf & Safari Resort. Every meal is exceptionally prepared with quality, locally produced fresh vegetables and game. The Resort’s talented chefs create menus that are as diverse as they are sumptuous. It’s not just the unique combination of flavours that make the dining experience so special; it is also the amazing settings in which you find yourself, which make it a truly memorable experience.

Listen to the beat of the traditional African drums and melodic choral singers while you enjoy your dinner around the fire in the White Lion Boma, just meters away from the ‘Big Cat’ islands.

The Shebeen Brul Bar is a superb watering hole with vibrant music and mouth-watering South African cuisine. This unique, traditional venue has a modern twist, lively atmosphere, bar and games that will make a success of any function.

Hanglip Mountain offers you the most exhilarating open-air feast you will ever be privileged enough to experience. Spy the Big Five from the comfort of a helicopter and then set down atop Hanglip Mountain with its majestic views of the surrounding conservancy. Whether you’re enjoying a champagne breakfast, a simple picnic or a full meal this is one experience you will never forget.

In the heart of the bushveld under the enormous African Sky is the Fig Tree, the ultimate in exclusive and tranquil dining. As night fades to black and the stars begin their dance across the evening sky, you’ll hear the lions roar and the distant trumpeting of an African elephant reverberate on the night air.

The unique Wilde Makou floating bar guarantees guests unforgettable sundowners. For a divine cup of coffee and a delicious slice of cake visit the Baobab Coffee Shop which is set within the walls of the grand Great Enclosure, alongside Inspirations Living and Curio Shop, Land Rover Clothing Boutique, the Legend Wine Boutique and the Legend Health Spa and Greenhouse Hair Salon.

Additional leisure facilities at the Resort include a swimming pool, tennis, football, basketball and other sporting activities, quad-biking, horseback adventure safaris, ballooning and helicopter flights, special children’s activity programmes and self-guided bird and tree walks through the botanical gardens.


Rooms

There are no fences or gardens within this 210-roomed resort. Built across the awe-inspiring African Bushveld, each suite has three or four individual bedrooms linked by walkways. The elegant decor is a timeless reflection of the African wilderness. Large picture windows and glass sliding doors offer panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and lead out onto perfectly secluded outdoor patios.

Resort Suites:

Each bedroom includes a small seating area and ultra-luxurious en-suite bathroom with double vanity, spacious shower and separate bath. Drawing their inspiration from the natural surroundings, the rooms are tastefully dressed in a neutral base accented with gorgeous gold, bold bronzes, spring greens, mushroom browns and shimmering silver.

Entabeni Lodges:

All of the Entabeni Lodges have a true African character and are set in diverse and breath-taking surroundings.

Eagle’s Nest (Upper Escarpment):

Nestled against the Western Cliffs this four-star satellite lodge of Lakeside, has spectacular birds-eye views of Entabeni Lake and Mountain.

The 24 bedrooms are linked by thatched walkways to the main lodge area. Each room has its own private deck overlooking the mirror-like lake where you can enjoy sundowners and watch the passing game and bird watch. Sand-washed walls and thatched roofs in the rooms are complemented by plush animal prints as accents to crisp white linens.

Ravineside Lodge (Upper Escarpment):

You’ll look far and wide before finding a venue with vistas that are more impressive than those found at the four-star Ravineside Lodge. Built on wooden stilts on the edge of the ravine, each wooden thatched lodge has 3 or 4 bedrooms, a private open-plan lounge and bar area and open sundeck. Indulge in bird and game watching while experiencing the beauty of the ravine and the sounds of rippling water, far down in the valley. The luxurious wooden interiors are complemented by a white and tan colour scheme.
