The Legend Golf & Safari Resort is famous for its unusual golf course, which boasts a 19th hole that players can only access via helicopter. Situated in the gorgeous Entabeni Safari Conservancy in Limpopo province, the combination of wildlife, bushveld and award-winning golf is an attractive option for those searching for something extraordinary.

Did you know?

The Waterberg Biosphere Reserve covers an area of about 400 000 hectares. There is rich rock art in the area.

The Legend Golf & Safari Resort is situated in the Entabeni Safari Conservancy in the attractive Waterberg region of Limpopo province. The resort is renowned for its superb (and unique) golf course, as well as the phenomenal wildlife that roams across 22 000ha of bushveld landscape.

The topography of the area surrounding Legend Golf & Safari Resort is spectacular, with majestic mountains creating an idyllic backdrop to the bushveld plains that are home to the Big Five.

The resort has world-class facilities, including a wellness centre and a sports centre. The signature course, which was designed by 18 of the world’s great golfers (each designed a hole), including Padraig Harrington, Trevor Immelman, Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia and Gary Player, is the pièce de résistance.

Its outstanding feature is its 'Extreme 19 th', the longest par 3 in the world. Its tee, set on the Hangklip Mountain, is about 400m above the green and is accessible only by helicopter. Golfers play to the Africa-shaped green hundreds of metres below. Needless to say, the views are spectacular and the hole is perfect for those who want to get some practise in high-altitude golfing.

There is also a golf academy and a driving range.

This resort is unique in terms of design and architecture. Curved lines at the entrance represent the ancient African kingdom of Monomotapa, and the entire complex was designed for minimum impact on the environment. Rooms and suites are decorated with an African theme and offer every luxury.

Legend Golf & Safari Resort is also known for its excellent cuisine – and eating under the stars is a delight for visitors.

Highly trained rangers take guests out on game drives across the conservancy; the area is known for the Big Five, so wildlife sightings are generally eventful. The birdlife in the Entabeni Safari Conservancy is also superb.

An authentic African safari that includes one of the world’s finest golf courses is a formidable combination indeed.
