Hendriksdal (K 8)

Name: Hendriksdal

This idyllic setting as described on the website

"Situated in the mountains above Sabie and surrounded by lush green pine forests, Hendriksdal is situated on the Panorama Route of Mpumalanga, within a day's drive of all the main tourist sites of the area. The Kruger Park is a mere one-and-a-half hour's drive away.

The restaurant is housed in the former Station Master's house and is run as a casual family Italian Trattoria, offering rural Tuscan dishes. Many ingredients are freshly picked in our own vegetable and herb gardens. The atmosphere of the restaurant is special, relaxing and different. After more than 15 years the restaurant has built a reputation for excellent food together with a small, award winning, wine list.

The Hendriksdal Station Buildings, comprising the Station Master's Office, First and Second Class Waiting Rooms as well as the Ticket Office, have been transformed into en-suite accommodation. Furnishings and decor have been set in the milieu of the 1920's when the station was originally built.

No apology is made if the occasional timber train rumbles by, it only adds to the atmosphere."

Was shattered by an R5 rifle...and two dead bodies.
