Description

Medike is a mountain sanctuary deep in the Soutpansberg. The Sand River or Mongesi with its impressive gorge and quartzite cliffs forms an outstanding feature of this natural Heritage Site.
Here the wildlife enthusiast is rewarded spectacular vistas, star filled nights, beautiful flora, animal and birdlife.
Marked hiking trails meander through rugged gorges, forested kloofs and mountain streams to waterfalls, spectacular rock formations and a mysterious Bushman shelter with ancient rock art.
Guests can stay in Murango cottage; build against two enormous boulders, or in the pioneer cottage, Dzhiawolala, the Venda name given to the old trading post dating from the early nineteen thirties. Masianoke log cottage has a thatched deck with a beautiful 360º view on the surrounding mountains.
Please note there is no electricity and the cottages have gas fridges and stoves and paraffin lamps.

We really enjoyed our stay at Medike Mountain Reserve. Although the drive was difficult it was well worth the climb up into the mountain. Our self serve cabin was lovely and had everything we needed including a beautiful star filled sky in the evening. Our host was welcoming and did everything to make sure we had anything we needed. We encourage you to stay at Medike if you are looking for a little slice of heaven.

Now that is a place i will never forget. It brings one back to earth, it was awesome, the stillness, the views, animals we saw. My husband and I took the Boabab trail and that was a great adventure. Not a place for small children but if you want to get your teenager away from the tv or mixit and spend time with mom and dad now that is the place to do it. Want to rekindle your relationship with your loved ones or bond or fix your marriage Medike is the place to do it. The owners of the place were awesome, I have never seen such a fit man before and that week i saw a man who never let one feel out of place or left you stranded , he made sure we were comfortable and settled in. I will for sure be back to take another week there this year.

A great place to break away - we could have spend more than a week easily if only we had the time - perfect to relax, ie to get back and deal only with the basics. We just loved it and had a superb time.

29 April 2008

The stay was very pleasant and peaceful. The mountains were beautiful and the hikes were challenging.

27 August 2007

This is one of the most stunning places we have visited, and Hannes and Marietjie are such special people. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back there for a longer stay.
