The Kruger National Park is one of Southern Africa’s largest wildlife sanctuaries while the Panorama Route - set along Mpumalanga’s escarpment - is home to the Blyde River Canyon, the world’s third-largest canyon. Settled amid this natural beauty on a working avocado and macadamia nut farm is Highgrove House.

Built at the end of the 1900s, this colonial farmstead lies in a hidden pastoral setting with sweeping views over the Mpumalanga Lowveld valley. Offering exquisite accommodation and award-winning cuisine, this is a haven of tropical tranquillity that seamlessly meshes modern amenities and old-world charm.

Perfect as a base from which to explore the wonders of the Panorama Route, the Kruger National Park and the many attractions of the region, like Pilgrim’s Rest and God’s Window, return to Highgrove House for a wander in the tropical gardens and among the purple-flowered jacaranda trees, a refreshing dip in the pool and for sumptuous meals and impeccable service.

Harking back to an era of gracious country house living, Highgrove House offers a classic retreat without compromising on modern comforts and amenities.

To truly relax, have a soothing massage or doze on a sun lounger.

General Facilities

    Swimming Pool


The award-winning restaurant offers alfresco continental and full English breakfasts in the Victorian gazebo to start off the day, and evenings are given over to sumptuous culinary affairs coupled with wines from the sensational wine cellar. The elegance of the candlelit dining room is only offset by the gourmet experience that the a la carte menu offers. Highgrove House produces its own honey and much of its own fresh produce.

Eight exquisitely-decorated garden suites feature separate sitting areas with open fireplaces, and secluded verandahs facing out over the valley and avocado orchards. Overhead fans add a classic touch of old Africa in keeping with the elegant furnishings, and the en suite bathrooms feature a shower and an enticing tub, perfect for a blissful soak.

  • It was outstanding. I’m glad the first venue that you considered for use didn’t work out because we were so happy with the accommodations.
