About our home

We are the owners of a lovely, spacious holiday home in South Africa. The house is on a private game reserve with about 800 large antelope (no dangerous animals). It is located in the mountains of the Eastern Free State near a picturesque town called Memel, about 3 hours drive to the south-east of Johannesburg. It is advisable to have your own vehicle, preferably a SUV type or 4x4. The house has all the modern amenities like a washing machine, dishwasher, tumble dryer, heated towel rails, fireplace, fridge/freezer, and is in a secure and safe location. There is full time staff on the reserve and a cleaning service is available at a nominal extra cost. Activities include game drives, hiking, fishing, horse-riding, mountain-biking, birding and star-gazing. Internet access is limited due to the mountains, but we are planning install satellite connectivity in the near future. This is our vacation residence and we will assist guests to get there and back from Johannesburg. The charm of this house is that it feels as if you are the only people on earth, yet it is quite easy to get there and it is not far removed from civilisation ...
