About Porcupine Ridge

Janet and John extend a warm welcome to their beautiful country house, tucked away in the mountains at the heart of the Panorama Route, yet only minutes from the amenities of Sabie village and 50km from Kruger National Park.

Perched above an old gold mine and part of the original mining village, Porcupine Ridge is a stylish, informal retreat combining old world charm with modern comforts. The friendly ambiance invites you to relax and unwind, surrounded by rambling gardens, abundant birdlife and glorious mountain scenery. There are lovely walks on the estate, through indigenous bush, grasslands and plantations. Monkeys, duiker, mongoose, bushbabies and other small game may be seen. A spectacular waterfall with a deep pool for swimming is a special delight.

Porcupine Ridge has five immaculate en-suite bedrooms, a welcoming guest lounge with deep, comfy chairs, satellite TV and cosy fireplace, a spacious dining room and two large covered verandahs for relaxation and alfresco meals. Plenty of enclosed parking with lock up parking available if required.


All the bedrooms have seating areas and beverage trays with teas, coffee, hot chocolate and rusks. Hairdryers, clock radios, ceiling fans, heaters, electric blankets, 2-pin Euro sockets and generous bath sheets are provided in every room. Two superior rooms are extra spacious with lovely views, bar fridges, complimentary sherry and chocolates.

Quality queen or twin (3/4) beds have white percale linen with pure silk duvets in summer and cosy duck down duvets in winter. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with either bath, with shower over, or shower only. Each room sleeps two and one has an extra single sleeper couch.


Leisurely English breakfasts comprise a cold buffet of juices, cereals and yoghurts with home-made tropical fruit salad, fresh fruits, nuts and seeds, a variety of breads with muffins or pastries and home-made preserves, complimented by a cooked breakfast with daily variations and interesting options, a choice of teas and locally grown coffee. A Continental selection of cold meats and cheeses can be served on request. Generous packed breakfasts can be provided for ‘early birds’.

A wide selection of eateries from coffee shops and pancake places to steakhouses, pubs and fine-dining restaurants can be found in Sabie and surrounds.


Porcupine Ridge is perfectly placed for an incredible variety of attractions and activities. Tour the scenic Panorama Route, one of South Africa’s major tourist attractions, with beautiful waterfalls, God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Blyde River Canyon, the largest vegetated canyon in the world. Return via the quaint gold-rush village of Pilgrim’s Rest, declared a National Monument in 1974, and try your hand at gold panning.

Embark on a geological expedition to Sudwala Caves, the oldest known caves in the world. Go on Safari to the Kruger National Park, one of the world’s greatest natural treasures. Experience unusual wildlife encounters at an elephant sanctuary, wildlife rehabilitation centre, cheetah breeding project, bird of prey centre, chimpanzee eden and private game reserves.

Golfers will find a variety of scenic and challenging courses within an hour’s drive. Adrenalin junkies are spoilt for choice with a mind blowing list of adventure activities on the doorstep. Sabie is a well known for trout fishing, mountain biking and hiking. Gentler pursuits include cultural tours, farm tours, craft markets, artist’s studios, country shopping and day spas.
