Set in a sheltered and quiet valley with abundant wildlife, a river, forest and views of the Magaliesberg mountains, the thatch house offers an opportunity for a peaceful and rejuvenating retreat.

The space
The Thatch House includes a dedicated practice space for yoga, meditation, dance, exercise or play, two fireplaces and a cosy lounge nook. It also has a natural swimming pool, outdoor bath and braai area. A hammock, day bed and plenty of trees are available to chill in.

The 115 hectare conservancy we are part of offers short and long hikes, sitings of all kinds of buck and wild ones, and swims in rock pools in summer.

We are pet friendly. We have strong 4G Vodacom reception throughout the farm.

Where you’ll be

Magaliesburg, Gauteng, South Africa

Our valley is unique because of the natural quiet here; we are lucky to be far away from any busy roads or human noise as most neighboring farms are game-farms. This enables us to offer a tranquil refuge in nature to our guests, even though we are only two hours from Joburg/Pretoria.

If you want to drive out at any point, the nearest town is Magaliesburg (35 min), and the nearest garage is Olifants Nek (25 min). The nearest restaurants are Brauhaus Afrika (25 min) and Black Horse Brewery (35 min).
