A luxury retreat in the heart of Mpumalanga’s bush veld accommodating leisure and business travellers will go under Park Village Auctions’ Hammer on 12 November.
“The lodge undoubtedly presents an excellent business opportunity,” says PVA’s Clive Lazarus, commenting on the property’s impressive service bouquet and location, appealing to all manner of guests and encouraging occupancy all year round.
Operating as Ebundu Lodge located on the R40 main road between Nelspruit and Whiteriver, the property compromises 107 en-suite guest bedrooms, six conference facilities for up to 700 pax collectively, banqueting facilities, an entertainment boma, a wedding chapel, a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, a “world-class” spa, two outdoor pools, mini golf, and a fully equipped laundry.
Nearby attractions and amenities include the Lowveld National Botanical Garden, Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, and the White River Crossing shopping mall. The Kruger Park’s Numbi Gate is 40 km away.
The sale, comprising the property and its entire contents as a turnkey operation, falls under the auspices of PVA’s business rescue division, which specialises in selling businesses experiencing difficulties. Clive says that most businesses which PVA sell under this banner simply need a capital injection or restructuring to continue operating and, therefore, represent an excellent opportunity for investors.
Clive, “Pent-up travel desires post-COVID -19 has seen inbound travel steadily increase this year. Local travel has also seen an uptick despite increasing costs as businesses, in particular, seek to rebuild company culture and attract top talent.
“The call of the nearby Kruger Park and convenience of a 3.5 hr drive from Johannesburg to White River along the spectacular panorama route makes the lodge an ideal holiday, team building and conference destination.”
Viewing will be held daily from Monday the 6th to Friday the 10th of November between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The auction commences at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, the 14th of November, in a live webcast format.
