Travellers' Choice
Situated on the outskirts of Graskop and overlooking the beautiful Mpumalanga escarpment you will find our Guest farm. The name ZUR ALTEN MINE is German and means "to the old mine". In the old days there was a private gold mine on this 10.5 Hectare property. Our guest farm is ideally situated to explore the Panorama Route with its spectacular view sites such as Gods Window, the Bourke's Luck Potholes and the Blyde River Canyon .

Although we only stayed one night, we wish we could have stayed longer. Gorgeous, comfy cabins that are clean. Loved hearing the nature all day and night. Our cabin had a wonderful fireplace and heater in the bathroom which definitely came in handy. Short hikes around the property was a great stress reliever. This place is truly amazing. We were greeted and shown around then left to relax. We were given great recommendations on places to visit. These places ended up being the highlights of our trip! Honestly, 10/10. Thank you Zur Alten Mine! Hope to be back!

We have been fortunate to stay at Zur Alten Mine a few times now, each time it has been an exceptional experience. The chalets are welcoming, comfortable and well laid out. The service is perfect and the hosts are very friendly and attentive. Very clean. The cookies add a special touch. Every time we have been here it's so hard to leave. It is beautiful and peaceful and has a lovely hiking trail.

This was our favorite stop on the recent road trip we took to Kruger and Blyde Canyon. We stayed there on our way back home. We would have happily stayed for longer. We were in number 3, which has a bedroom and loft area which was perfect for our kids. We enjoyed the hike to the old mine and along the river. The grounds are beautiful and the accommodations cozy, comfortable and well-provisioned. The homemade cookies were a nice touch. Very good value.

Such a lovely place and a nice warm welcome too! We stayed in a 4 bed cottage and it was so nice, a fireplace really was the cherry on top because it was cold, wet and misty when we arrived. A cozy cottage with a full kitchen and a nice clean bathroom, the whole place was neat and tidy and tastefully furnished. Unfortunately we were there for only one night but we did manage to do a forest walk the next morning and it was absolutely magical! Words cannot do justice to this beautiful place and we would love to return again one day.
