Bundox Villas

A South African family escape

In today’s busy world where time is the rarest of luxuries, we offer you the chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with your family and retreat to a quiet place, far from the madding crowd, in the heart of one of South Africa’s most beautiful Lowveld regions. Surrounded by tall riparian trees on the lush banks of the sparkling Olifants River, Bundox Villas is designed to help you switch off, recharge and rediscover the joys of “we” time with your loved ones.

It’s the sound of water running over and between rocks that makes this a truly special destination. Calming, soothing and wonderfully relaxing, the song of the river is the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon braai (the local vernacular for a barbecue) or a siesta on the huge deck hammock alongside an inviting plunge pool. Interrupted by the occasional laughing grunts of the resident pod of hippos and the calls of a myriad birds, this is where stress evaporates like early morning mist.

A river runs past it
