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 tranquil 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.

Grass was a bit overgrown and there was no security. DSTV should also be provided.Cottage was need and maintained

We stayed in a one bedroomed cottage for four nights with our two dogs. The outstanding feature of this farm is its solitude and silence. If you are stressed out and wanting complete time out, this Hekpoort getaway is perfect. The access to the property is on great which is not always the case for properties in this area. The cottage was clean and adequately outfitted. However for longer than a day or two, one begins to feel the spartan aspect...another couch, a comfortable armchair instead of rather hard rattan would be welcome after a long walk.

Karen is a wonderful woman, very helpful. We had a peaceful stay. One thing though, we were told after asking that the bedroom has a king size bed but instead we found twin beds.

We enjoyed a relaxing week in a clean, well appointed chalet. The supply of wood is plentiful and we enjoyed a fire in the hearth each evening.
