aha Casa do Sol
Kruger and surrounds, South Africa
A little piece of the Mediterranean in Africa’s safari land, this rustic yet refined retreat may be rooted in the Med (think terracotta tiles, patio dining, and pretty garden swimming pools), but beyond its architectural styling, everything’s decidedly South African. In the 500 hectare Ilanga Nature and Game Reserve, with an elephant sanctuary as one of its nearest neighbours, aha Casa do Sol Hotel & Resort is just five minutes’ drive from Hazyview’s restaurants and shops, and makes a scenic home-from-home for those exploring the sub-tropical Lowveld – with the Phabeni Gate of Kruger National Park just 20 minutes’ drive away.
