Welcome to Two Rivers Retreat on SA-Venues.com, offering accommodation in Renosterspruit, Magaliesberg.
Deep in the Crocodile River Valley, just 40 minutes from Sandton and 15 minutes from Lanseria airport, you will find Two Rivers Retreat. Nestling in the foothills of the Magaliesberg, perched above the confluence of the Crocodile and Jukskei rivers, is a haven of solitude. Here is a place to restore the mind, body and soul; a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, or just a place for time alone.
Once the home of artist and painter Gordon Vorster, Two Rivers is set in the midst of the Oori Private Reserve. Surrounded by indigenous bush and wildlife and towering over the ancient rock amphitheatre that dominates the ravine below, the haven offers spectacular views.
Two Rivers offers self-catering accommodation for up to four people. The retreat is discreet, private, and exclusive; you will be the only guests. Built out of natural rock, with great solid walls, the property has been immaculately restored by Gina Hall, and offers comfortable and spacious living. The high wooden ceilings compliment the magnificent chiselled Byzantine floors.
A modern well-equipped kitchen allows for efficient self-catering as well as a braai area for outdoor cooking. Tea, coffee and sugar will be provided.
Two large double bedrooms are serviced with the comforts of fine linen, antique furniture and original artworks. Upstairs, a sunny gallery leads on to a high, partly covered, magnificent wooden deck. This is the place to watch the flocks of sacred ibises returning home in the golden glow of the setting sun. In the winter months you will be welcomed by a roaring fire in the hearth and hot water bottles in the beds.
Sleep to the sounds of the bush and the gentle rush of water. Wake at first light and watch the sunrise over the hills in this cradle of mankind. Activities include good fishing, nature walks, birding, and exploring the Cradle of Humankind.
Meals can be served by prior arrangement.
Two Rivers is set in the heart of the Oori Private Reserve. Oori (the original Tswana name for the Crocodile River) is itself within in easy access of the Unesco World Heritage Site, the Cradle of Humankind. Two Rivers is just 40 minutes from Johannesburg and Lanseria Airport with twice-daily flights to Cape Town is only 15 minutes away. There are also numerous restaurants in the area.
We look forward to welcoming you to Two Rivers Retreat!
