Zebula a truly great course to play

Zebula Golf Course is a classic Bushveld par 72 course, set in the open plains of the reserve with herds of game roaming freely. The course is relatively flat yet undulating, inviting to play with generous fairways and clusters of trees that act as hazards. Voted the Golf Digest’s Best New Golf Course 2004 and awarded the 5 star Golf Experience for 2010 by Compleat Golfer, Zebula has matured wonderfully over the past few years into a truly great course to play.

Zebula was designed by the legendary Peter Matkovich, a golf professional for 25 years, and a world-respected golf course designer for more than 15 years. When it comes to golf course design, first and foremost Peter is an environmentalist – seamlessly blending nature and design to create golf courses that are inherently sensitive to local environments. In fact, love for the indigenous remains a cornerstone of his designs; to him, golf should offer a retreat, an escape, from one’s busy life.

The layout, built to USGA specifications with kikuyu fairways and bent grass greens is so much part of the bushveld experience that one wouldn’t be surprised to encounter a lofty giraffe or a shy zebra or two during your golfing experience. The wonderful year-round climate and the judicious use of naturally occurring water practically guarantees the course will be green year round.

Complemented as it is by an excellent Clubhouse with a location that defies description, a well-stocked Pro Shop and superb practice facilities, Zebula is a joy to play. You are destined to keep coming back again and again to experience it. As we like to say: if you have Africa in your blood and you love the game of golf, life just doesn’t get better than this!

Golf Design, the Peter Matkovich way.

“Golf course design is an area where we have immense responsibility. Besides trying to create the most enjoyable and memorable courses for golfers to play on, we need to ensure that we do it in such a way that those who come after us, can do so with the same wonder and awe at all of nature’s beauty.Golf courses can and should have a positive impact on their surrounds, which is essential for the game to grow.”

African Safari

Hot Africa is one of the goals of our expeditions. The Kruger Park 4-day safari trip will surely last long in your memory.

The tour starts in Johannesburg. We cross the spectacular Eastern Transvaal, called Mpumalanga since 1995. We are heading for the legendary Kruger National Park. We will spend the afternoon in Nkambeni concession. During the evening meal by the fire, we actively participate in the performances of the local population.

Next day we start our Kruger Park tour, then we take the truck to our first Kruger safari. Watch carefully if you want to spot rare bird species and alert animals. Additionally, a night safari with one of the local hunters will be a great way to meet nightly predators.

The third day we devote a whole day to safari in Kruger Park – a perfect opportunity to take pictures. We will be surrounded by fascinating nature and we will certainly be able to see lions, buffalo, rhinoceros and many smaller animals. At night, we can hear elephants walking around, calling out for lurking antlers or baboons.

On the last day of our expedition we will admire the exotic views along the spectacular Panoramic Trail which is part of the Cliffs of the Dragon Mountains. The biggest attraction will always be the green canyon of the Blyde River with adjoining viewpoints, such as: God’s Window, Three Rondavels (three huts), Pinnacle Rock (tower).
The tour ends at Johannesburg Airport.
