About Ekukhuleni Game Farm and Cottages

Ekukhuleni Game Farm is situated in the foothills of the Magaliesburg mountains, on the Magalies Meander near Hekpoort. The peaceful game farm environment provides scenic walks, game viewing and excellent birding opportunities, as well as grand mountain views. This location, only an hour away from Johannesburg, Pretoria and Rustenburg, is ideal for that perfect getaway.

The farm offers four secluded, fully equipped one- and two-bedroom self-catering cottages set in a tranquil natural bush setting. Each cottage features a covered verandah with a built in barbecue and well equipped kitchen with the necessary crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, as well as a gas stove and microwave oven. All linen and bath towels are provided but guests should bring their own swimming towels.

A salt-water swimming pool is situated in the picturesque garden and the farm hosts nyala, impala, blesbuck, zebra, kudu and Black gnu. Frequent visitors include warthogs, small Spotted genets, Black-backed jackal, duiker, bush-babies, and mongoose.

We are also situated in close proximity to the Cradle of Humankind; explore the Sterkfontein Caves and Maropeng which offers a world-class underground attraction, taking you on a journey of discovery through the history of humankind. Other interesting sites and activities in the area include balloon safaris, game drives with the Big 5 and an Elephant Experience at a nearby game lodge, fly-fishing at an eco-friendly venue, and several restaurants and spas.

Alternatively, relax next to the pool or picnic in the shade of the riverine forest where the Doornspruit meanders through Ekukhuleni. Birders will enjoy ticking, and adding to, the 155 species already identified on Ekukhuleni.

Safari: The game farm hosts nyala, impala, blesbuck, zebra, kudu and Black gnu as well as other wildlife.

We had a lovely break at Ekukhuleni: Karen & Carl are great hosts, the fireplace was nice and cosy, the game we saw made us forget we were only an hour out of JHB and there is so much to do in the Magalies area. We'll definitely visit again!

We loved our stay. Karen is a wonderful host, relaxed and helpful, and the house and surroundings are very thoughtfully done. Peaceful and secluded. Will definitely be back!
