Location

Waterval Onder, Mpumalanga, South Africa

Situated on 261 hectares in Waterval Onder 10km from Waterval Boven and 90minutes from Nelspruit. On the banks of the Joubert Spruit in the privacy of Cycad Valley surrounded by jagged cliffs. A mere 2 and a 1/2 hours from Johannesburg off the N4, we are ideally located to give you that complete 'out of the city' feel. Stargazing, hiking and swimming is highly recommended in the many natural rock pools situated along the spruit. We have three, well marked, self-guided hiking trails, a 3km, 8km and 10km. Hiking along the 10km trail will take in all the splendours of the valley including the small stone kraals and shelters used by the Boers who were stationed in the valley during the Anglo-Boer war protecting the ‘Kruger Millions’ as they made their way to Lourenco Marques (Maputo today) with the Boer President Paul Kruger, criss-crossing the spruit and culminating in the majestic Cappy Falls, a 35m waterfall. A sight not to be missed.
