About Zvakanaka Farm

Zvakanaka Farm is located on the south-facing slopes of the eastern Soutpansberg and is just 11kms from Makhado.

Our fabulous farm offers breathtaking beauty, tranquility and a number of walks to satisfy the more energetic.

There are numerous trails cut on the farm and a path across the wetland takes you directly into the bush favoured by Robins, Shrikes and Turacos. You can choose whether to wander gently or take a steeper hike to the very top of the cliffs where, if you are lucky, you will look down on the Lanner Falcons which nest on them.

Self Catering Accommodation

The farm offers self catering accommodation in either a cabin, chalet or camp site. Please note smoking is strictly forbidden in both the cabin and cottage.

Ingaba Cabin:
This private cabin is popular for both romantic getaways and nature lovers. The cabin consists of a large bedroom / living area complete with a fireplace and a separate kitchen and bathroom (toilet, basin and shower). The cabin can only accommodate two people in a double bed: it is not suitable for children.

The cabin is fully equipped for self-catering with a four-plate gas stove, a microwave oven, kettle, toaster and necessary utensils. Braai facilities are provided as is a reasonable amount of firewood together with firelighters, candles and matches.

Linen and towels are provided but the cabin is not serviced.

Madala’s Cottage:
Madala’s cottage is ideal for a small family but it is equally delightful for couples! There is a small pool in front of the cottage with spectacular mountain views.

The cottage has a main bedroom furnished with a double bed and has an en-suite toilet and separate shower. Leading from the shower, through sliding glass doors, is an outdoor shower and double bath in an enclosed garden.

The second bedroom is small with two single beds. This bedroom has access to its own shower and toilet.

The living room is open plan with the kitchen and dining room. There is a jet master fireplace. It is fully equipped for self-catering with a four plate gas stove, a microwave, fridge / freezer and braai facilities (firewood is provided).

Camp Site:
Zvakanaka campsite, with its wonderful mountain views, is situated down near the wetland, far from the cabin and cottage. There are four camps; William’s, Sam’s, Chimangy Moonrise, and Shady John - named after our employees who work on the farm and who helped to build them. The four camps share the ablution block consisting of four toilets and two showers.

The campsites are relatively far apart and each camp is designed for maximum privacy.

Sam's and William's sites have a shelter offering shade and some protection from the weather, an electric light and a power point, a braai stand and ground fireplace, a water point and a number of sites for tents.

Chimangy Moonrise and Shady John sites have braai stands, a waterpoint and a ground fire place.

In November 2014, my wife and I stayed at the self-catering Igababa Cabin. It is private with everything you want for a comfortable stay. From Igababa, there are several trails for walking or hiking to the the top of the cliffs facing the cabin. There is a private driveway entrance to the cabin from the road and it is completely quiet and self-contained. Over several years, we have stayed at many self-catering cottages in South Africa and this one is clearly the best we have used.
