We had a fantastic stay at Tomjachu! If you are looking for a place to just relax and spend some time outdoors, this is it. We loved star gazing at night from our hammock while impala grazed a few feet away, and we loved the walking trails where we saw impala, kudu, ostrich, bushbuck, and lots of birds and butterflies. We stayed in the Rock House and it was very comfortable and private with great views of the mountains. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need and firewood was provided. Lots of special little touches to make you feel welcome. We were amazed at how nice it was given the very reasonable price. Great value!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to your Bush Retreat Tomjachu is an exclusive, third generation family-owned private nature reserve set in over 550 hectares (1300 acres) of game fenced mountain bushveld, located within the Crocodile Valley Nature Conservancy. Just 20 minutes from Nelspruit it overlooks the southern boundary of the Kruger National Park and the great Crocodile River valley. Regularly remarked upon as being one of the most beautiful and serene locations in the area, Tomjachu is in its own valley with breath-taking views across the Bekker Mountains. The Homestead and nearby cottages are surrounded by beautiful gardens, lawns and terraces, all sharing the greater splendours of nature. Perched high above the Homestead, our 5-star self-catering Valbonne Villa also offers spectacular views from its extensive veranda and infinity pool, which lies at eye level with the soaring eagles. Whether you are looking for adventure or relaxation, with family, friends, or your loved one, Tomjachu offers something for everyone. On our trails, tracks and roads you can mountain bike through the bush on easy or challenging routes, hike amongst the abundant plains game and through mountains and valleys, go for a game drive or guided walk with our experienced ranger, and try your hand at fishing for bass and bream in our dams. Or simply unwind by the pool, listening to the orchestra of over 265 bird species, as the fresh mountain air trickles up from the valley below. Tomjachu is the ideal place to explore all the wonders of the Lowveld. We accommodate 14 Guests at the Homestead and three delightful cottages, each with their own unique character and romance. We are additionally blessed with spectacular bush locations to enjoy spectacular bush dinners under the stars, lit only with the flicker of lanterns or picnics by the water's edge or in one of our other picnic sites around the property.
