About Highgrove House Country Hotel
Highgrove House Country Hotel is situated between White River and Hazyview just off the R40 in a Malaria Free area in the Mpumalanga Escarpment on a 64 hectare Avocado & Macadamia Farm. 20 minutes drive to the Kruger National Park, and 46km to the Panorama route with God’s Window and the Blyde River Canyon all in a day visit. Our Guests love our location and normally stay for 3 nights. First day they will visit the Panorama route, and the second day they love getting pampered in our 10 treatment Wellness Spa. On day three they will sleep in and order breakfast in bed and depart at 11am.
Our Guest list is narrowed down to 16 guests. The old farmstead build around 1893 by Colonel Wick is today the heart of the business.
