Nestled in the heart of the Magaliesberg, just two hours from the city lies an haven, a tranquil escape where you can relax the body, and rejuvenate the soul. It's the perfect getaway for a couple, a small family or friends, looking for a self-catering space to indulge nature and live simply.

The space
‘Tonquani’ means “Beautiful place". A stylish self-catering space where you can relax and rejuvenate. The chalet is off the grid (no electricity), thus bringing you closer to nature. Gas operated geyser, stove and fridge/freezer, with limited light and soft ambience, surrounded by nature, bush walks and river streams, panoramic views and star gazing make for a unique experience.

The living space is homely and cosy, with Rosewood and Oregon pine and offers a sleeper couch. By contrast, the loft bedroom upstairs is light and airy with a queen-sized bed. There is one bathroom with a bath (outside shower to follow in summer!).

The chalet is well-equipped for self catering, with 180 degree panoramic views. Surrounded by nature, birdlife and small wildlife, bush walks, river streams, and stargazing makes for a unique bush experience. It is also fairly private, with your nearest neighbour some distance away.

(This chalet was previously called Tonquani)

Guest access
The chalet is within walking distance of the restaurant, convenience shop and facilities which include a children’s playground, tennis courts, putt-putt, giant chess, a games room and three swimming pools. Here you can picnic under shady trees to picnic, or utilise the braai facilities by the pool.

There are several bush walks around the estate, a great opportunity to drink in your natural surrounds. Alternately, if you would like a day out hiking in the magnificent Tonquani Gorge, please let me know so I can arrange a day pass (R80).
