Our family spent 3 nights here and enjoyed it tremendously. Extremely friendly hosts and their 2 dogs are also great to be with. It's off-the-grid but it's by no means primitive, on the contrary: it's very well equipped.
We make a few beautiful short walks in the immediate surroundings and made a daytrip to Kruger Park, quite OK if you start early. Hope to be back some day.

Paardeplaats is just a few kilometers outside the town of Lydenburg on the Long Tom Pass, so its ideally situated as a base to explore the greater Mpumalanga area such as Sabie, Graskop, etc. The facilities are basic, but very nice, and services such as electricity and water is supplied 'off the grid'. The hosts, Brian and Gerda are wonderful and we had such a wonderful stay that our overnight turned into a few days. If you enjoy nature, peace and quiet, then this is certainly a place to consider

We stayed here as a family on a short trip to Long Tom Pass in Mpumalanga. Beautiful surroundings, no cell phone reception, no electricity apart from solar and gas for hot water that was more than adequate. Total peace for your soul. Ideal place to book out for the whole family or group of friends. Sleeps 12 in 4 beautiful en suite rooms in two separate buildings. You have the full use of the lounge, kitchen and entertainment area. Huge fireplaces everywhere and a aga stove in the kitchen. At night they light paraffin lanterns everywhere. Such a stunning atmosphere. 24 km of hiking trails. The houses are set around a small dam that runs into a small gorge. Brian and his staff were super and even cooked for us on request.

Great place to stay in the middle of a nature reserve. Cosy rooms in old mining buildings. We made a trekking with lots of fantastic views. The owners are very friendly and hospitable, they made some great cookings and they gave us a lot of information about the surroundings. We would love to go back!!

I have visited Paardekraal for a fantastic family weekend on my 60st birthday. The natural beauty of the farm with lots of animal and bird life, a trout dam, waterfall and hiking trails add up to the perfect brake-away. Adding to this the neat and well service accommodation and I can assure you that we really had an unforgettable stay.

If we could have imagined our first place to stay in Africa, this place and these people exceeded everything we dared to hope for. The two days we stayed here were too short not to miss the history of this place, what beautiful stories, how privileged and welcome we felt here: what a loving welcome, what breathtaking natural beauty. We enjoyed the walk with Gerda, Bryan's culinary cooking, the chef's delicious breakfast and the heart-warming hospitality. Here you sit down as if you were with old friends and you always leave too early and have many stories richer!
