Dear Ralph and Elspeth Thank you very much for the nice days spent in The Herb Cottage! Thank you for the moths! Your mysterious garden is fantastic! Hope to visit again soon!
Thank you very much for an unforgettable experience! Just the break away that we needed. A beautiful private space where we could connect to what is important in life. Nature heals! Thank you for a clean and well thought out cottage that has brought us so much joy!
Beste Kampplek ooit! Nou gaan geen ander Kampplek kan kers opsteek nie. Pragtige uitsig en heerlike geriewe, wat veral help as dit reen.
This is a fantastic area for mountain biking, with beautiful scenery – routes range from laid back to seriously challenging. There are several major bike races during the year which are very popular as well as laid out trails. The Herb Cottage is well situated for your biking enjoyment in the Haenertsburg area and surrounding mountains.
The Kruger Park
The biggest game reserve in the country is only 1 ½ hours away, so a day trip is an easy option, going via Tzaneen and Phalaborwa. Or why stop there – you can go through the game reserve directly into Mozambique and on to the coast!
Lovely natural waterfalls ½ an hour away – take a picnic and your swimming gear. Enjoy the majesty of the falls, where you can walk, braai, swim and sunbathe or just relax to the sound of the rushing water. The birds and butterflies are abundant so look out for the Cambridge Blue butterfly or Mountain Wagtails flitting between the pools.
The local town of Haenertsburg has several fairs during the year which are well worth visiting – The Spring fair, Berry festival and Kiwi festival to name a few. The Holistic fair will bring you back in touch with your inner self! Plan your visit around them – they’re lots of fun with all sorts of food to taste and you can take home some wonderful mementos.
Golf and Other Sports
For the golfer there is the beautiful Tzaneen Country Club, offering a challenging 18 holes. The famous Merensky Golf course at Phalaborwa (where lions , elephant and other wildlife often join your four ball) and the Polokwane course are top class venues and bowls, squash, tennis and horse riding are also available.
Magoebaskloof has some of the most stunning trout waters in the country,You can fish the local dams and rivers by prior arrangement with the Haenertsburg Trout Association or private land owners. Brown and Rainbow trout cruise our waters. For bass, carp, kurper and yellowfish. The nearby Tzaneen and Ebernezer dams offer wonderful sport, spectacular birds and wildlife.
