This property pays homage to Southern Africa trading empires built on ivory and gold. Set in a valley in the Pilanesberg Mountains, this resort has "a unique design" that includes elements of African, Baroque, and Asian architecture in its towers, domes, and rotunda lobby. Try boerewors (South African sausage) at the poolside buffet. The King's Suite has hand-carved maple walls and a sauna.
