Waaigras Cottage in Hills and Dales, north-west of Johannesburg, overlooks the rolling grasslands of the Rhenosterspruit Nature Reserve which straddles the Jukskei, Crocodile and Hennops Rivers south of the Schurveberg range. It is situated about 30 kms from northern Johannesburg and Pretoria. Waaigras Cottage is a place for connecting with yourself, space and silence - not recommended if you crave entertainment and activity! A good place for "chilling out".

Rambling walks or hikes can be taken through the lush Bankenveld grasslands and the views stretching in every direction are a balm to the soul. During the day the korhaan's raspy call echoes over the veld and in the evenings the night birds, frogs and jackals take over. The cloudscapes are beautiful and the sunsets are often stunning. A bird list is available - 298 bird species have been spotted in the Reserve. For the more energetic there is a floodlit volleyball court.

Waaigras Cottage is a member of the Crocodile Ramble and it is AA Recommended Accommodation. It is within reach of the Sterkfontein Caves (the Cradle of Mankind World Heritage Site), game reserves, art and craft galleries, and other attractions.

Accommodation at Waaigras Cottage offers six beds in all, with an option of king-size beds or singles. It has one en-suite bedroom plus a two-bedroom family unit, also en-suite. The two units are separated by a sitting-cum-dining room and kitchen. Waaigras Cottage is never let to separate groups at the same time - your privacy is respected. (There are extra beds in the main house for workshops and retreats.)

There are no shops in the vicinity, so bring all you need. If you forget something crucial, we'll help you out.

For those who prefer to snuggle in bed with a good book, we have hundreds to choose from. And gardeners are welcome to take slips, seed and cuttings or just wander through the Wild Garden. Music lovers can bring their own CDs or take their pick from ours. There is no TV.
