About Impressions Retreat

Impressions Retreat is situated a convenient 1.5 hours from Johannesberg, between Magaliesberg and Rustenburg on the R24. We offer a single, self-catering private log cabin situated on a hill in the bush, overlooking the Magaliesberg Mountains and the surrounding foothills. This is ideal for a romantic bush break, or just to get away from the city.

Enjoy an early morning coffee on your private deck while watching the sunrise and listening to the birds calling. Take a lazy swim in the pool overlooking the mountain, or enjoy a nightcap around your own fire pit. Feel the freedom of space, bush sounds and a sky filled with stars.

Lovely, private and cozy cabin, peaceful surroundings, including the swimming pool, braai areas and the Hex river hiking trail under a leave roof. Two nights are definitely not enough - the true tranquility and silence of the bush veld atmosphere were overwhelming. Although it was very hot, we were blessed with an afternoon rain shower which contributed to an even more beautiful view and sunset! We appreciate the hospitality and friendliness of the hosts, Frans and Runel!

We had a wonderful time at Impressions Retreat! When we arrived we were greeted with chocolates on the bed and a complementary bottle of wine in the fridge, congratulating us on our wedding anniversary. We pre-ordered a breakfast basket for Saturday morning and what a treat it was! Everything was neatly packed into a beautiful basket.There is a wide variety of birds that we enjoyed watching every morning. There are a few books at the cottage on birds, reptiles, trees, etc. that came in quite handy in identifying everything we saw.Before we left on Sunday we went on one of the (three) hiking... see more
