About Saamrus Guest Farm

Saamrus Guest Farm is situated in a woodland valley between a tranquil stream and the foothills of the ancient Magaliesberg, just one hour's drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria. We offer comfortable and charming self catering farm cottages surrounded by 500 hectares of unspoiled nature, bird life and walking freedom. The ideal getaway for nature lovers and hikers.

If you would rather stay at home than leave the four legged members of your family behind, why not bring them along? Saamrus is a home-from-home for you and your best friend. The owners of Saamrus Guest Farm: Chris and Annatjie Geldenhuys and Leonard, their son, treat their two dogs and 3 cats as beloved family members. They understand completely that while you want comfort, safety and charm for yourselves, you want the same for your pets - after all, they are your four legged children.

A special pet welcome awaits all breeds of socialised and house-trained dogs. Even cats and caged birds will feel at home. Each cottage has a fenced garden to keep your pets safe while you take a nap or generally indulge in some human-only relaxation. When you're strolling with your dogs along the river banks or heading out on longer hill-rambles on the 500 hectares of Saamrus walking freedom, socialised and non-aggressive dogs are allowed to run freely off the lead.

Most of the cottages are at least 50m apart, except Tarentaal and Kiewiet which are about 15m apart. We have used reeds and hedges for screening to give you maximum privacy and seclusion.
