Mountain Villa

Accommodation

The reserve offers you the freedom to be on your own in the bush to live and explore as you wish. Hikers can stay in our basic overnight hiking huts or if you need a bit more luxury, you can book into one of the self-catering secluded Family Houses or Cabins.

 

All units are basic and rustic, not luxurious – with the emphasis on a beautiful secluded settings with a view and the sound of nature.  On-site facilities include braai areas with grids. Wood can be purchased on the farm.

Once settled at the accommodation of your choice, you are requested to restrict driving to an absolute minimum. The Reserve is best explored on foot. You have the freedom to explore the gorges and rocky krantzes of The Waterberg, or go swimming in the clear bilharzia-free rock pools.  Guests are welcome to enjoy some of the on-site activities which include hiking, game viewing, bird watching, mountain biking, swimming in the dams, and fishing - catch and release. Arrangements are in place with various other Eco Tourism Destinations and Resorts providing for game drives, horse riding, outdoor games, conservation initiatives on a day visit basis.
