Our unique Tree Top Cabin, romantic Tree Top Tent,luxury Rock Cottages,and isolated Farmhouse are spread kilometers apart on 3500ha of hills, savannah, wetlands and grass plains. Romantic break-aways, family gatherings, weddings and affordable group accommodation, we have anything for every occasion.

We are situated only 2,5 hours north of Pretoria where the majestic Waterberg meets the beautiful Bushveld. The reserve is home to 21 species of plains game like Kudu, Eland, Gemsbuck, Hartebeest, Zebra, etc. When the sun sets over the Waterberg, predators like Leopard, Cheetah, crocodile and Hyena often leave their tracks in the pathways to remind us of their presence. We are also part of the De Wild cheetah management program.

Rock lodge
The lodge has two individual thatched cottages, built a short distance apart with privacy in mind. Each cottage has a fully equipped kitchen opening onto a elevated patio with a spectacular view and an intimate rock boma to enjoy the music of the Bushveld nightlife around a cozy fire.
The cottages share a entertainment area with a swimming pool, pooltable and DSTV. The lodge can accommodate 24 people.

Tamboti Tree Top Cabin
Ideal for a romantic getaway or quality time with family and friends. Built in the branches of a huge Tamboti tree, it surely is the ultimate regarding privacy and uniqueness. The two bedroom cabin has a private swimming pool, intimate fireplace, fully equipped kitchen and a deck overlooking a bird rich wetland. The cabin can accommodate 5 people. Any birdwatcher's dream!

Enjoy the spectacular view from the front deck equipped with a gas braai and outside shower,or spoil your over-worked body in the ouitside spa bath.

Wow, we have been nature lovers all our lives, visiting lodges but never have we been so close to nature. Walking onto the deck that takes you to your eating and living quarters and being so high off the ground was awesome. Having nobody around you, only you and the wild was what truly made this remarkable. Thanks, will recommend to everyone.

Did not enjoy time wasted at Rock Lodge, do not recommended for nature lovers that enjoy peace and quiet. Got lost several times on roads.. Money wasted. Will not return.

Ek en my vrou was op soek na 'n lekker wegbreek plekkie in die bosveld toe kom ons af op GNU RANCH. Wat 'n stukkie hemel op aarde.Ons gasheer was Anton Erasmus en hy het ons dadelik laat tuis voel. Die boomhuis is 'n moet ver enige persoon wat graag bietjie wil weg kom en privaatheid hê. Ons sal dit vir almal aan beveel en ons sal verseker weer die bosveld gem besoek.

Lephalale (Ellisras) Reviews

Lephalale (Ellisras) is very convenient for the border posts to Botswana.

Construction activities in the region makes it difficult for general tourism. Shopping Centres are of high quality but very crowded at times. Lots of places just outside of Lephalale offers typical African experience and is perhaps better for tourism.
