Hakunamatata which means "No Problem" is situated 30 minutes from Johannesburg and Pretoria in the Muldersdrift / Honeydew area, near the Cradle of Humankind. Our fully secured 21 acre estate features luxury accommodation, a fully staffed health spa, conference and wedding facilities.
Set in rolling lawns with water features where indigenous birds abound, filled with trees and fragrant flowers we invite you to experience the ultimate in exclusivity at a country estate with a difference. Our décor boasts a combination of ultra – modern and African flair, original ethnic artefacts and paintings.
Rustic elements include African prints, recycled glass, wrought iron, thatch and carved wood. At night, the light of burning torches and the tranquillity of the Highveld countryside enhances this most picturesque African rural setting.
