The bar doubles as a cigar lounge and is a lovely place to retreat to for coffee and a brandy after a sumptuous dinner. There is a full sized snooker table in its own room in the main area.

Quad biking at Timamoon


If you have to leave the tranquillity, activities include horse-riding, quad-biking, abseiling, canoeing the Sabie River, walking, and cycling. The Long Tom Toboggan and Graksop’s Big Swing are nearby.

River picnic

The attractions of the Blyde Canyon and Panorama Route are close by, and you can head further into the hills to the trails and rainforests of Magoebaskloof or to the Cycad Gardens of the Rain Queen Modjadji. Staff will happily pack a picnic for you to take on these adventures, or to just wander down to sit on the banks of the river and while away the day in peace.
