Classy accommodation in layers of earthy textures and local art

Nwanedi Guest suite

Ideal for those who love to surround themselves in simple, luxurious beauty and comfort.

This self catering suite is part of the Heritage & Culture centre-building with its own private veranda and braai and a wide view on the surrounding mountains. It is far enough from the Farmhouse to be private but close enough for spoiling yourselves to our wholesome, home cooked meals in the restaurant just around the corner or to laze around the pool and lapa close by. This suite is named after the Nwanedi dam with its twin walls and reflects the textured bush-veld of the arid parts of  Venda north of the Soutpansberg.



This is a one bedroom suite with king size double bed and en-suite bathroom with a bath and a shower. There is a fire place and extra bed in the spacious lounge/dining area and kitchen. The suite has TV and Wi-Fi. The braai on the veranda has a beautiful view on the mountain.

This suite has a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge, stove, oven and microwave. There is a roof fan, heater, hairdryer, coffee and tea facilities, extra blankets and mosquito nets. A laundry service is available on request.
