Welcome to your home in the bush. Tomjachu is an exclusive, family-owned private nature reserve set in over 550 hectares of game fenced mountain bushveld, located within the Crocodile Valley Nature Conservancy. Just 20 minutes from Nelspruit it overlooks the southern boundary of the Kruger National Park and the great Crocodile River valley. Whether you are looking for adventure or relaxation, with family, friends, or your loved one, Tomjachu offers something for everyone. On our trails, tracks and roads you can mountain bike through the bush on easy or challenging routes, hike amongst the abundant plains game and through mountains and valleys, go for a game drive or guided walk with a knowledgeable guide, and try your hand at fishing for bass and bream in our dams. Or simply unwind by the pool, listening to the orchestra of over 265 bird species, as the fresh mountain air trickles up from the valley below.

The dirt road to get there isn't great, which acts as a deterrent to leave and return too often during your stay. There is no tv. This means the cottage is really meant for couples that want time alone. In keeping with that, there needs...More

Dear Richard, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Unfortunately, the main gravel road on the way in is currently corrugated and we do petition the local municipality often to repair it. We are currently attending to the maintenance of the...More

Yes, would be great for a 9 year old. The game is zebra and buck, so quite safe and interesting for a child. Lots of places to go walking and exploring.
