Magnificent Zebula Gold Estate & Spa Joins Protea Hotels

April 2013: The stunning Zebula Golf Estate and Spa in the malaria-free Waterberg region of Limpopo Province joins the Protea Hotels portfolio this month. This is the second hotel within a month to join Africa’s largest and leading hotel group; the newly renovated Manor Hotel in Pretoria returned to the Protea Hotels portfolio on March 1. The Protea Zebula Lodge is situated on the stunning and totally unique Zebula Golf Estate and Spa, a mere two hours north of Johannesburg. In addition to the cozy free-standing chalets there are other accommodation options available on the estate including superior rooms at the Waterberg Lodge and numerous varied, spacious and luxurious private houses for those who prefer a more relaxed self-catering option. Protea Zebula Lodge is a leisure, conferencing and adventure destination in its own right. The estate is located on 1600 hectares of pristine bushveld in the shadow of the Waterberg and commands a spectacular setting. Game drives are also able to be conducted over neighbouring reserves giving GUESTS an opportunity to view wild animals over thousands of hectares. Undulating, indigenous tree-covered hills and wide-open grasslands are punctuated with a multitude of dams and waterholes – a diverse landscape that supports a wide variety of game, birds and small wildlife. Protea Hospitality Group CEO Arthur Gillis says the Protea Zebula Lodge is a magnificent addition to the Protea Hotels portfolio and will undoubtedly be one of the group’s superior offerings in the domestic and international leisure and MICE markets.
