Legend Golf & Safari Resort is a one-of-its-kind dream-getaway for golfers who are also lovers of the wilderness. This outstanding golfing resort is situated in Limpopo’s scenic Waterberg, two and a half hours by road or 35 minutes by air from Johannesburg. Play on an awesomely unique golf course that has been created in the shape of Africa, each hole designed by a world golfing champ. The Extreme 19th is the cherry on the top, quite literally, because it’s accessible only by helicopter. In addition to unrivalled golf, kick back to a bumper safari in the Entabeni Safari Conservancy. It’s a terrific golf and safari experience, all rolled into one. There is also a Golf Academy and Family Golf Centre, and a Pro Shop, on site. And if there are any non-golfers travelling in your party, there will be plenty to keep them happily occupied.

Play to your heart’s content, and when you’re not on the fairways, you’ll be enjoying award-winning continental food, oodles of warm hospitality, and the offerings of a wellness clinic. Do a day trip into the Kruger National Park and see the sights of the Panorama Route.
