December is a popular season for Mpumalanga and the Kruger National Park region as local and international holiday-makers descend on the destination for their annual dose of rest and relaxation. A bushveld break brings the most rejuvenating experiences to any visitor, but one cannot ignore the extreme weather that makes this a true African holiday.
Destiny Lodge, situated in White River, has offered some relief to visitors in the area by opening up their swimming pool, restaurant and bar facilities to day visitors. The 4-star lodge is situated a mere 40 minutes from the Kruger National Park’s Numbi Gate and is already proving a welcome diversion –in any bushveld itinerary.
Visitors can enjoy the facilities on a pay-per-day basis at a nominal fee or complimentary for those booking a lunch or dinner for more than 10 people. Zamani’s, the in-house restaurant, serves up a delicious à la carte lunch and dinner and Zeta, the lodge’s poolside cigar and cocktail lounge will indulge any summer sundowner or cocktail request.
White River enjoys an average December day-time temperature of 30°C; no doubt a refreshing swim will be highly popular, never mind a sundowner with a view.
