Zwakala River Retreat is situated on a privately owned farm in the beautiful Magoebaskloof Mountains in the Limpopo Province. We offer accommodation and a unique farm venue in the Magoebaskloof area. Our accommodation includes cosy cottages and cabins and a private camp site located next to a tranquil river in the breathtaking mountains.

The cottages and the campsite are right on the banks of the Broederstroom River - the source of the Great Letaba River. The river is perfect for trout fishing, tubing and swimming and it is renowned for its clear waters and restorative qualities. Jump into the mountain waters and revive your soul! Legend also has it that once you have drunk the waters of the Letaba River you will always return.

We are very privileged to live on this little piece of Africa and would like to share with you a slower pace of life. Come and meet our three horses, five dogs and four chickens and when they are home, our three children and usually some more friends.

Mina's Art Cafe & farm Venue is our newly renovated venue, ideal for weddings, family or corporate gatherings, music performances or exhibitions.

My wife and I got married at Mina’s and we can not recommend this place more! Whether it’s for a wedding, a quiet family weekend or a few beers at the brewery, it is a fantastic option in the gorgeous Magoebaskloof area. A family run farm where you leave feeling like friends. The accommodation is wonderfully rustic farm stay in a tranquil setting. It will always be very dear to our hearts and we will be back to visit regularly.

Camping here is the most restful and soulful break for city slickers and country folk alike. The River snakes past the campsite and you sit around the fire listening to it gurgling along. Swing off the rope and plunge into its refreshing water or go for a long forest walk. If you prefer more home comforts book one of the riverside cob houses. No electricity, no WiFi, but so so cozy and relaxing you get to recharge the battery that is most important, your precious life.

No electricity. Light a fire under a donkey boiler for hot water. Cook outdoors on a open fire. Swim in the river in front of your cottage. Walk up to the craft beer brewery on the farm, the beer is great. Cycling or walk for hours on routes in the forests surrounding you. Gaze up into the star filled night sky, you might even catch one shooting through. This place is fabulous!
Stayed in the Cob house. Its basic, but fully kitted out kitchen (no electricity, you don't need it!) the most comfortable beds. The water is pipping hot. Can't wait to return there as soon as we can.

The most idyllic setting for a lodge. Pine trees, mountains, sound of the gushing water, wooden cottages by the river, fireplace, no wifi, pure bliss. Add to that the warmest hosts I have ever met so far, delicious home made food. It doesn't get any better than this.

The cottages themselves are cozy and comfortable with all the basic amenities present for a self-catered place. I am personally partial to the Cob House having stayed there twice. I think it has the best location but I might just be biased.
