Zwakala River Retreat is a perfect place to chill and get away from the stress of the city life. Our Limpopo self-catering accommodation is simply beautiful and in some of the accommodation we have chosen not to have electricity. Instead we believe that the simplicity of candle light and lamps, steaming hot water from a donkey boiler and a 'lekka' fire make for romance, talking, dreaming and togetherness. For those of you who need electricity for reasons of your own, our newly renovated Farm House and The Barn House are connected.
Braai facilities outside with a fire pit for sitting around. Log burning fireplaces inside all the cottages!
