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. The large bathroom is shared amongst your guests with a shower and bath. There is a full kitchen with stove, microwave and fridge plus a dining area both inside and outside as well as a comfortable lounge. Own entrance and garden situated in bushveld.

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!
