Our beautiful accommodations are situated on Tupelo Honey farm where we grow avocados, macadamias and herbs and which is surrounded by indigenous forest, disappearing up the mountainsides into the mist. You can walk around and explore the area, or visit the Glass Art Studio which is centrally located at the carpentry workshop.
As it’s a working farm, there is fresh produce available during the season.

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.
