About Grootfontein Private Nature Reserve
Grootfontein Private Nature Reserve is a 1,200-hectare bushveld farm located just three hours from Gauteng in the beautiful Limpopo Province, near the eco-tourism town of Thabazimbi. This fourth generation working family farm welcomes all lovers of the great African outdoors. Grootfontein is proudly OFF-THE-GRID (but embraces the "glamping" lifestyle!)The reserve offers accommodation in four bush lodges and two campsites that are all unique from each other and perfect for short or long stays. Guests can enjoy hot showers powered by paraffin, gas fridges, and solar powered lights. We now offer breakfasts! So if you and your group would like a cooked breakfast, please let us know when you book! Here, guests will find tranquility and pristine, untouched bushveld landscape that is home to over 150 species of birds, 160 species of trees, and a wonderful range of animals including zebra, giraffe, kudu, impala, waterbuck, bushbuck, Blue wildebeest, nyala, warthog, and leopard. Since the farm does not offer the Big 5, guests are free to explore the area on foot. We are also only an hour’s drive from Pilanesburg and Marekele National Parks where the Big 5 can be viewed. In addition, we offer hiking, birding, 4x4 trails, kayaking, mountain biking, as well as themed weekends for mountinbikers, photographers and art lovers. We guarantee that your stay with us will leave you with fond memories that will remain with you for a long time after your stay at Grootfontein and we look forward to meeting you!
