Our beautiful farm Thabametsi (meaning Mountain Water) lies between two koppies overlooking the valley to the Witwatersrand Mountains. We have a mixture of agricultural and wilderness areas making it fairly unique. Grasslands for the animals to graze on and the wilderness areas that provide shelter for the little creatures – squirrels, monkeys, buck, mongoose, porcupines, jackal, civets and even a serval that has made the farm it’s home. We cater for families and couples in our self catering cottages. Children are welcome and there are many activities to keep them occupied whilst our dog visitors are free to run and explore the open spaces. #petfriendly

We spend two lovely days at squirrels nest. Three generations with enough space and things to do. The beds were so big and comfortable. Beautiful open stoep where we celebrated my birthday. The kids loved the donkey cart and tractor rides. My favorite was to canoe on the peaceful dam.

What a fun weekend with family snd friends. This is the perfect place for a family weekend get away. Close enough to Joburg to get there for a good weekend , beautiful surroundings

Allot of space for the kids to run around, ride their bikes and swim. Animals and tractor rides were a highlight.

Cottage was clean and comfortable, although the power went due to a storm but there were no candles or lanterns to use
