Climb – Hike – Bike – Fish – Relax...
Tegwaan is the perfect place to stay to have access to a lot of fun outdoor activities while staying in a comfortable place!
Immersed in nature, Tegwaan is a little ecosystem of its own: with fresh water springs, several fish ponds and a creek, the grass is always green, the trees are tall and the birds are happy! :-)

The Pine Cottage sleeps 6 adults and is ideal for two couples with kids, big families, or small groups of friends – especially with dogs.

The space
Set just outside of Waterval Boven (one of the most popular weekend destinations among climbers and mountain bikers form Joburg and Pretoria), Tegwaan is a destination in itself: it is the closest place to the Restaurant(-At-The-End-Of-The-Universe) and Triple Tier crags, and closely connected to some of the hiking and biking trails. We also have our own ponds and fish, so bring your rope, your hiking shoes, your bike, your fishing rod or your hammock! Your dogs will also love it – with so much space to run around and water to splash in, they will be happy and exhausted by the end of the weekend!

Tegwaan is also an ideal stopover for travellers: being just a few kms off the N4 on a good road, just halfway between Jo’burg and Kruger National Park, it’s an easily accessible place to break up the drive and enjoy a properly relaxing day by the pool, followed by a braai under the stars and an evening by the fire.

Tegwaan has only 4 units (two cottages, one studio and one tiny house) but 34 hectares of land, and the Pine Cottage is a few hundred meters away from the rest, so you’ll have privacy and quietness.

The Pine Cottage is nested in a cosy little pine grove overlooking the Rock Fairies creek. It can accommodate 6 people (+1 on the couch), so it's ideal for big families or groups of friends: there’s one master bedroom (en-suite with tub and shower), one twin bedroom (en-suite with shower) and one room with two bunks.
The rest of the cottage is open-plan, with the living room opening up to a naturally shaded patio with pic-nic table and braai area.
The kitchen is almost fully-equipped (no oven).

Location

Emgwenya, South Africa

Tegwaan is just off the road going from Waterval Boven up into the hills. In Boven you’ll find all the essentials: a supermarket and some shops, a petrol station, ATMs, a couple restaurants and pubs (try the Stone Circle in town or Aloes for a good burger or local trout, it's just a couple kms down the N4)... and in the hills you’ll find all the climbing crags, the hiking and biking trails, the fish ponds, etc.
Tegwaan is surrounded by wild “lowveld”, and within just a couple of hundred meters you’ll find some of the mysterious Stone Circles that are still a hot topic of discussion among archaeologists.

During your stay
We’re assuming you’re coming to Tegwaan for quietness and relaxation so we won’t disturb you, but definitely feel free to come say hi if you see that we’re around. We’re always happy to chat!
Our friends at Roc n’ Rope are incredibly knowledgeable on activities in the area, and always willing to help. They run a climbing shop/rental/school in town and they organise all sorts of outings and activities (we strongly recommend the Elandsriver waterfall abseiling daytrip!), so don’t hesitate to ask them – they’ll always understand your specific needs (even if you don’t) and make your stay in Boven something that you won’t forget!
