Escape from the noise of the city and experience the tranquility of nature in a family style atmosphere. The combination of comfort and exclusivity makes Chivhu the ideal retreat if you are looking for personal service and a once in a lifetime experience.
Chivhu can be found on a maize and cattle farm situated between Bothaville and Viljoenskroon, approximately 200 km from Johannesburg and 250 km from Bloemfontein. Chivhu is an ideal venue for breakaways, courses or team building events, with modern conference facilities available.
Guests may choose between 10 en-suite bedrooms, each with its own television and bar fridge, as well as the four private garden rooms that will take your breath away. The large lapa is ideal for smaller functions and all meals are served from the farm kitchen.
Chivhu also offers a private bar, which was built with bluegum logs. This creates the perfect setting where guests can gather and relax after a long day. The boma and campfire setting provides for many starry nights under the African sky, with nothing but the sounds of the night to enchant you.
Large trees and a beautiful lawn also make Chivhu ideal for garden functions. Bring your quad bike, order a picnic basket, and take the route that leads you up to a boma in the middle of the farm, with a spectacular view of nature. We can even serve your meal there and spoil you with a sundowner. If you are lucky, you will hear the lions roaring from the lion farm, which is located about 5 km from the view point.
For a breakaway that is unique, relaxing and memorable, come and visit Chivhu, the best kept secret of the Free State.
