About Ribbokkloof Holiday Farm

Ribbokkloof Lodge is a unique holiday farm situated in Mpumalanga, conveniently located just two hours’ drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Ribbokkloof forms part of a series of Gelykwater Bonsmara Cattle Farms, so every morning guest’s wake up to the sound of the cattle walking down the kloof path to drink from the stream near the chalets, while the calves play in their crèche. Our Bonsmaras are intelligent and inquisitive, so it is very likely that they will come right up to your chalet. In addition, Ribbokkloof’s horses will enthral all visitors, young and old alike.

Ribbokkloof combines the best of rustic charm and old fashioned farmhouse hospitality with absolute comfort, with a choice of B&B rooms, B&B chalets, self-catering chalets or camping site accommodation. Our chalets are privately positioned in the kloof, where the gentle murmuring of a mountain stream and rock pools will lull you to sleep every night. Or, for the more adventurous, camping under the stars is the perfect way to enjoy being close to nature.

Accommodation

Our accommodation consists of fully equipped self-catering chalets are ideal for larger groups of guests, family holidays, or a weekend away with friends. In comfortable, charmingly rustic surrounds and with an indoor braai area, you’re sure to enjoy a wonderful weekend regardless of the weather.

If you’re really want to get down and dirty with Mother Nature, then book a stand in our riverbed campsite and experience the blissful tranquillity of sleeping under the Ribbokkloof stars! In addition, all accommodation can be easily accessed by car (and not only 4 x 4 vehicles).

For chalet and camping guests, please note, that guests are required to bring their own bath and swimming towels, dish cloths, dish washing soap, toilet paper, torches, binoculars and insect repellent – and of course their own groceries. Bringing extra camp chairs will also make your stay more comfortable.

Green / Eco friendly facilities

Sustainable energy systems:
• Solar water heating

• Gas stoves etc. in order to do our bit for the energy saving (by not using Eskom at all)

We have our own recycling programme and the waste that the guests leave behind is taken to a recycle facility. Our activities are eco driven, hiking, bird watching, bass fishing and even our 4x4 routes are ecological sustainable.

Verified reviewvery good

Good day What a wonderful breakaway from the city it was. Nicely done. Just a couple of things. The kettle is leaking water so we used a pot for boiling coffee water. The fridge is also leaking water and the freezer door is broken. We saw the other houses had a bench to sit on by the fire place, we only had a table. Maybe look at putting a bench down at Tolbos as well. No DSTV remote, only a TV emote. We will definitely visit again, the owner is very friendly and helpful and i would recommend this to anyone.
