One of Africa’s most exciting new resorts has scooped another prestigious international award.

Legend Golf & Safari Resort, which was recently voted Africa’s Leading Tourism Development Project at the World Travel Awards, is now a winner again as the results of the Europe & Africa Property Awards 2009 in association with CNBC Arabiya have been revealed.

The resort, at the Big 5 malaria-free Entabeni Safari Conservancy in Limpopo, South Africa, has won an award in the category of Best Golf Resort.

Representatives of the resort, which boasts a world first 18-signature golf course designed by many of the world’s best golfers, will now be invited to attend a high profile gala dinner at the Marriott Hotel in London’s Grosvenor Square on Friday, 16 October.

The event is part of the International Property Awards, the competition dedicated to finding the best real estate professionals across the globe. The fact that Legend Golf & Safari Resort has won one of these coveted awards is proof that South Africa is not only able to compete at this level but also triumph within the highly competitive Europe and Africa property arenas.

Later this year, top scoring winners from the Europe & Africa Property Awards will compete against other winning companies from Asia Pacific, the UK, Americas and Arabia to find the ultimate world’s best in each category.

Peet Cilliers, CEO of Legend Lodges, Hotels and Resorts said: “Once again this is testament to the hard work and dedication of a magnificent team of people who all believe in what we are trying to create. And that is a world class golf and leisure resort in the heart of Limpopo here in South Africa.

“We always strive to innovate and drive new ideas and I think with the Extreme 19th and our world first 18 signature golf course designed by some of the world’s leading golfers we are achieving that. I’m extremely proud of what we are doing here and hope we can continue to deliver true excellence.

“And we are extremely lucky to have IFA Hotels & Resorts as our partners in this global project and to share our pride in this award with them.”

The award once again acknowledge the uniqueness of the world-class Legend Golf & Safari Resort, situated in the heart of the African bush, which boasts the Signature Golf Course, an exceptional residential estate, a golf academy, in addition to plans for an internationally branded hotel and wellness centre, recreational facilities and a Field of Legends sports complex.
