INDABA 2012: Legend Lodges reveals new runway

INDABA 2012: Legend Lodges reveals new runway

It is famed for having longest par-three golf hole in the world, its luxurious accommodation, the world’s first baby rhino orphanage and the Big 5 roaming wild and free on its safari conservancy.

Visitors – many of them A-list celebrities – come from far and wide to experience Legend Golf & Safari Resort (LGSR), in the Waterberg area of Limpopo.

But now, thanks to the latest addition to the award-winning destination, getting there has become a whole lot easier.

A new 1.3 kilometre Legend Airstrip at LGSR has already welcomed its first commercial landings and can accommodate planes as large as a DC3.

Visitors are already familiar with the sight of helicopters at the resort, as the only way to reach the tee on the Extreme 19th golf hole – atop Hanglip Mountain – is by chopper.

But now the skies around the development – named Africa’s Leading Sports Resort and South Africa’s Leading Golf Resort for the last two years at the World Travel Awards – will welcome larger aircraft as journey times to Legend are consequently shortened drastically.

But pilots or passengers hoping to enjoy a fly-over of the golf course or conservancy will miss out as aircraft are not allowed to enter the airspace above either – and fines are applied to those who do not adhere to the rules.

Take a look at the official website for more information.
