About Amohela Ho Spitskop

Amohela ho Spitskop Country Retreat & Conservancy is beautiful, exclusive and close enough to be easily accessible, but far enough to be remote, special and magical. Succumb to our large, comfortably furnished self catering cottages where we offer seldom found seclusion and privacy.

Rediscover your soul in the vast timelessness of the Highlands of the Eastern Free State. The 420 acre Retreat is nestled in a valley between the small rural farming villages of Ficksburg and Clocolan. The self catering cottages are beautifully positioned to enjoy the spectacular views that stretch to the majestic Maluti Mountain in the South-East.

The silence and beauty of our valley, with flocks of birds flying in great V formations to feeding grounds, the rasping noise of the Northern Korhaan, and far away the sound of a dog barking or a cow calling her calf to heal. The magnificent sunsets are followed by nights with stars that take your breath away.

Travellers' Reviews

After far too long, we returned to "Amohela". What a joy it was! We've stayed at many "quiet" places around SA. We know the country better than our own...
