Our Lifestyle Farm offer hands on experience with animals like cattle and calves, cows, sheep and lambs, pigs and piglets, chickens, horses and there fowls and donkeys – something the nowadays child from the concrete jungle only read about in books or see on television. Ever went on a donkey cart ride? Well here you can experience it.

Michelle Du Plessis – 10.05.2022
Heaven on earth! Was the best bush experience We had !

Anna Wenhold – 10.05.2022
A Really unique lodge to go and relax as a couple or family, surrounded by lovely Bushveld thorn trees, birds singing in the background, and lot of activities to keep the kids busy while you are relaxing with no city noise around you. While the kids are kept busy outside with bow-hunting and horse-riding, you can go for a relaxing back massage, surrounded by experienced staff. In the late afternoon you see the typical African sunset in lovely gold, orange and red colours while swinging in a hammock, with a sparkling glass of bubbly champagne in your hand. The most delicious meals are served, with vegetables out of their own garden, while the friendly hosts are always around. I will really recommend this lovely, unique lodge, with all amenities to everybody who loves the Bushveld, silence and peace. Not far from Pretoria or the rest of Gauteng, it is a lovely weekend/ long weekend breakaway for a couple or family. Or a group of lady friends can relax at the lodge, while the men are staying at the Bush Camp, hunting their favourite game and enjoying lovely boma fires.

Debora vd Velde – 10.05.2022
