A quiet & peaceful four star country house, tucked away in the mountains at the heart of the scenic Panorama Route, yet only 5 minutes from Sabie village and 40 minutes from the Kruger National Park, via More Phabeni Gate. The friendly ambiance invites you to relax and unwind, surrounded by rambling gardens and glorious mountain scenery. Porcupine Ridge has five luxuriously appointed en-suite bedrooms, a cosy guest lounge, free WiFi and plenty of free safe parking. A delicious English breakfast is served in the dining room or on the large covered view verandas. Hiking, birding and waterfall on the Estate. Less
