About Killarney Farm House

Luxury self-catering accommodation close to the Kruger National Park sleeping a maximum of 14 people (as long as a number of them are children).

Killarney Farm House has incredible views across the Schagen valley with fabulous bird life and nocturnal wildlife. Our guests have access to wonderful river walks and roaming rights over the whole farm of 1,240 acres (500 hectares). Killarney Farm House is ideally located for trips to the Kruger National Park as well as Mozambique and Swaziland. We are the perfect holiday destination for people of all ages - whether you want a traditional family holiday or an action-packed adventure.

The 7-bedroom house is separate from the working farm and surrounded by 6 acres (2.4 hectares), of beautiful gardens and lawns with an inviting swimming pool, veranda, sunbathing deck and outdoor dining area. The house is cleaned and serviced on a daily basis.

There are mosquitoes around, but Nelspruit and the farm are considered to be a very low-risk malarial area. This means it is highly unlikely you will contract malaria when staying with us. Most local people don’t take malaria prophylactics unless they’re staying over-night in the Kruger Park or environs. That said, Killarney Farm House can't take responsibility for anyone who contracts malaria, so please consult your doctor or travel clinic prior to departure.


Nelspruit is the provincial capital of Mpumalanga and the gateway to the Bushveld - in particular the world-famous Kruger National Park, (Malelane gate is 100 km's away), one of the biggest and oldest 'Big Five' wildlife parks in the world. Mpumalanga is a lush, land-locked province, filled with deep ravines, verdant valleys, crystal-clear streams, magnificent waterfalls and plenty of wildlife. It is found north-east of Gauteng, and shares a long border with Mozambique.
