Situated just off the N4, known as the Platinum Highway, the little town of Groot Marico lies between Zeerust and Rustenburg. The town Groot-Marico is named after the Groot-Marico river, one of the few perennial rivers in this area. It is the ideal place to come to when you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life.
Groot Marico is small. Blink and you will miss it. But a visit here is almost imperative. There are some enchanting old buildings, including the Information Centre tucked off the main road behind a wall built by Italian prisoners of war during World War II, and a good place to stop to find out local information and a place.
Kearneys Guest Farm is situated in the heart of the Marico Bush Veld surrounded by breath taking nature and the Marico river runs through the lower part of the farm.
We are situated just 13 km from Groot Marico. Come and enjoy a relaxing weekend in a private setting.
Kearneys Guest farm is a large fully furnished farm house which can accommodate up to 20 people. The self-catering house is equipped with electricity, fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, two-plate stove, kettle, toaster and microwave, five bedrooms with bedding included, patio, cosy Lounge with fire place, two bathrooms with showers and two outside showers, braai facilities, bread/pizza oven and lapa.
Activities around the farm include the following: quad-bike trails, 4x4 trail, hiking-trails, fishing, mountain bike trails, tube on the river, jumping of cliffs into river, game drives, star gazing and swimming in the river or pool.
Groot marico is ideal for tree spotting and bird watching as it has 178 tree species and 360 bird species. With the river within walking distance from the house, taking a stride through the green bush fields with surrounding cliffs to the river makes this the ideal place to come unwind and rejuvenate yourself. The eye, Marico oog, is situated 20 km away from Kearneys. It is a crystal clear eye, approximately 17 meters deep, ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving, or just a swim in the summer. Also 20 km from Kearneys, in the opposite direction of The Eye, is Marico Bushveld dam. The dam is ideal for fishing, water sports, skiing and sailing. There is also a Mampoer farm in the area that offers daily tours.
