Nestled in the heart of the South African nation is an idyllic rest place - close-enough for comfort and far-enough for tranquility. We offer self-catering or bed and breakfast, with dinners and lunches in your preferred environment, on request. On the doorstep of the origin of man - The Cradle of Humankind. Experience exquisite bird-life and unusual and rare indigenous plants. The Guesthouse and B&B is set in a private garden surrounded by the bushveld of Africa. Your options are endless - choose to braai in the various braai and guest areas; lounge around and enjoy the silence; explore nature walks and bird-watching; arrange pre-booked tourist attractions; pick pre-made home-cooked meals for heating; join Meerkatplaats bar for meals and drinks; or simply explore the many attractions yourselves. Set in a beautiful home, with a bar and guest lounge - and a warm homely fireplace for winter days and nights. Two cosy bedrooms with all the amenities you may need, the Magick and Fire rooms truly sparkle with delight. With a view of the African bushveld. These rooms features a double or queen-sized bed with a spacious shared bathroom (bath only). These rooms have the full DStv bouquet, hair dryer and a mini-bar with snacks. The fully self-catering guesthouse features a main bedroom en-suite with a queen-sized bed; a loft-room with double-sleeper filled with character and the Elephant section with a double sleeper couch.

We come back here every time. The owner is amazing. Personal attention, good service and a warm welcome are standard. A perfect place to stay for a couple of nights when you want to spend time in the region west of Jo'burg.

Thank you Cynthia For helping us with this wonderful little cottage tonight. It feels like being in the bush although you are in Urban area. We received a very warm welcome from them with a little shot of Moonlight Liquor and an umbrella for the rain. Thank you from the Cordia's and Ferreira.

Dear Yolanda and family Thank you very much for taking time out to do us a review. It was a pleasure hosting you and we are very pleased that you enjoyed the Bush Log Cabin - off the grid, just in time for load shedding :) We trust that your flight back to the Cape was comfortable and we hope to see you all again soon.

Beautiful off grid log cabin in the bush. Very warm couple that runs the B&B. They was so lovely and accommodating for our last minute check in. Literally called ahead only 40 mins and they were able to help us since our other accommodations fell through. Loved chatting with them both over a lovely home cooked English breakfast with a view of colorful birds eating and playing. Nice personal touches in bathroom. Very clean!!! We visited Maropeng and the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve. Definitely worth a visit!

we enjoyed our 2 night stay at Meerkatplaats just outside Krugersdorp, the well kitted out 2 bedroom unit was nestled in peaceful, natural surroundings, which we enjoyed being nature lovers. The beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed for a pleasant stay, including attentive hosts!

We used Meerkatplaats for a one night stay while in Johannesburg. the cottage we stayed in was well appointed and very comfortable. Cynthia & Fran were excellent hosts and Cynthia even got up at 5 am on Sunday to let me out. The only minor irritation was the fact that the only bathroom in the cottage is leading out of the main bedroom. This was a slight inconvenience for my son & his fiance using the second bedroom. I recommend Meerkatplaats.

We stayed in the log cabin.. It was lovely,clean and cozy! They had everything we needed there ( extra blankets and pillows incase we got cold and a stocked bar fridge). It was so peaceful and while we could call on Fran and Cynthia at any time they also gave us our own space. They were very helpful about the attractions in the area and where we could go if we wanted to see anything.

This was a wonderful experience just a few minutes from home. The Guesthouse was lovely and the set up is really nice. The boys surely enjoyed the outing. Fran and Cynthia are very friendly and makes one feel special. Will definitely book another visit in the summer when the boys can catch bugs..!!

Thank you so much for taking time out to do us a review, we truly appreciate it. It was such a pleasure hosting you and your family, and although there were two young boys - you really looked after the room so beautifully. A big thank you for that. We look forward to hosting you again in the summer and perhaps you can have a lekker braai in the bush with us! Warm regards Cynthia & Fran
