Her Excellency Noluthando Mayende-Sibiya, South Africa’s Ambassador to Egypt

It's another double for one of the world’s most exciting new leisure developments. Legend Golf & Safari Resort at the Big 5 Entabeni Safari Conservancy in the Waterberg area of Limpopo has been named Africa's Leading Sports Resort and South Africa’s Leading Golf Resort at the prestigious World Travel Awards – for the second year running. The award ceremony was held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
Hailed as the “Oscars of the travel industry”, the World Travel Awards is the most influential and comprehensive awards programme for the travel sector.

The world-class event saw global travel professionals acknowledge the uniqueness of the world-class resort situated in the African bush which boasts a world first Signature Golf Course, a golf academy, a unique 10-hole Tribute golf course in addition to conference facilities, a Field of Legends sports complex, a wildlife and cultural centre and a host of other facilities and activities.

Peet Cilliers, CEO of Legend Lodges, Hotels & Resorts, said: “As I said last year, it is a great honour that our vision and passion have been recognised by our peers in the global travel and tourism industry. The resort is proving to be a great success and increasingly popular with tour operators, conference and event organisers and travelers from around the world. And we continue to strive to deliver a truly 21st century experience in the heart of the African bush”.

Legend Golf & Safari Resort, located on the 22,000 hectare, malaria-free Big 5 Entabeni game reserve, is also home to the Signature Course, designed by 18 of the world's leading golfers, as well as the planet's most extreme golf hole - the Extreme 19th.

It sprang to global prominence when more than three million people across the world experienced the longest and highest Par 3 on the globe thanks to a short video of former Open Champion Padraig Harrington in a play-off against French tour star Raphael Jacquelin.

Since then hundreds and hundreds of people have enjoyed the adrenaline rush of this unique golfing experience.


The resort boasts more than 200 luxury resort suites, with 50 more due for completion by the end of the year and a new clubhouse and new additional conference centre the highlights of early 2012.
