The ultimate back to nature experience

Ribbokkloof Lodge is a unique holiday farm situated in Mpumalanga, offering an unforgettable holiday experience. With its breathtaking natural setting, the lodge is a piece of African Paradise, yet conveniently located just 2 hours drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Apart from providing the perfect break away from civilisation and an ideal family holiday spot, Ribbokkloof also offers a unique Farm Wedding Venue The Sugar Bean @ Ribbokkloof for an authentic, vintage Farm wedding.

Ribbokkloof combines the best of rustic charm and old fashioned farmhouse hospitality with absolute comfort, with a choice of B&B chalets, self catering chalets or camping site accommodation. Our chalets are privately positioned in the kloof, where the gentle murmuring of a mountain stream and rock pools will lull you to sleep every night. Or, for the more adventurous, camping under the stars is the perfect way to enjoy being close to nature.

Ribbokkloof forms part of a series of Gelykwater Bonsmara Cattle Farms, so every morning guests wake up to the sound of the cattle walking down the kloof path to drink from the stream near the chalets, while the calves play in their crèche. In addition, Ribbokkloof’s beautiful horses will enthral all visitors, young and old alike.

Going Green

We at Ribbokkloof want to do everything we can to protect Mother Earth, which is why we do not use any conventional electricity. But don’t worry; we have many clever, environmentally friendly solutions to make sure that our guests are as comfortable as ever. Hot water is made possible by solar panels (or gas on not-so-sunny days) while gas runs the stoves and fridges. In the evenings, you can always enjoy a little romantic candlelight, or use our enviro-friendly 12v solar systems or alternative power supply. Each chalet is equipped with a power supply, so you needn’t worry about a thing. Because we have no electricity, we have no plugs… so leave your hairdryer and tech gadgets at home, and simply enjoy the bliss of a true back to nature experience.
