A small, exclusive Shareblock situated about 16 kms from Hoedspruit. Umfula Estate on Olifants River used to be known as Hippo Pools.
With Hoedspruit being a quick drive away, Umfula has all the benefits of tranquil living while enjoying all the conveniences of a fast-growing bush veld town.
Umfula Estate on Olifants River has come in to its own as more and more people discover the benefits of living here permanently.
Umfula is unique in its reduced number of properties. It is accessed off the main R40 between Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa and is about 3 kms from the main road. Crime is unheard of except for maybe the odd T shirt disappearing off a washing line.
Magnificent trees. Incredible bird life – including the Pels Fishing Owl – a must for all bird lovers.
The properties within the Umfula Estate on Olifants River slope gently down towards the river. A few ‘inland’ stands are situated just across the resident access road. Only one of these is currently on the market – at a very good price too.
Game from the Kruger Park does wander down the river. The excitement is shared on a Whatsapp Group when this happens. Lion and Leopard are obviously the most exciting with elephant and the other game following close behind. Residents can enjoy watching from their own decks as hippo announce their presence at the end of another magnificent day in Limpopo, South Africa.
Take your time to explore the area and all that it has to offer. Panorama Route, activities in and around the Kruger2Canyon Biosphere Region and Blyde Dam. Explore the small towns of Graskop, Sabie and Pilgrims Rest. Or go on a shopping trip to Nelspruit, Tzaneen or Phalaborwa, all of which have a variety of shops, restaurants, AND Woolworths!
