Nestled in the heart of the Magaliesberg, just 90 minutes 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 to indulge nature and live simply.

The space
‘TONQUANI’ means “Beautiful place". A stylish self-catering space which 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

The chalet is well-equipped for self catering, with a braai outside, and a balcony either side with 180 degree panoramic views. You are surrounded by nature, and the panoramic views make for a unique experience.

The kitchen and living space is homely and cosy, furnished in rosewood and Oregon, and offering a double bed. By contrast, the loft bedroom is light and airy with a queen-sized bed. Your bathroom is downstairs offers a bath, with a hot/cold shower directly outside.

Guest access
Surrounded by nature, the small wildlife, birdlife and stargazing makes for a unique bush experience. It is also fairly private, with your nearest neighbour some distance away.

‘Tonquani's Rest’ is your own shady picnic spot about 15m away under the trees overlooking the Gorge, with the river and rock pools about 50m below, perfect for swimming and sundowners.

Several short, easy bush walks circuit around the Estate, a great opportunity to indulge your natural surrounds. And Kingfisher Dam is wonderful for birdwatching or a walk-about.

The chalet is within walking distance from the restaurant and facilities: Kid’s playground, tennis courts, putt-putt, giant chess, a Chapel and three swimming pools, braai and picnic areas, rivers and rock pools to swim in and explore.

COVID LEVEL-3: The.pool and facilities are open, but strictly subject to Covid awareness practices like wearing masks and social distancing.
