About Griffons Nest

The bedrooms are equipped with a double bed and single beds, and the 2 bathrooms feature a shower, basin and toilet in each. The separate room does not have a private bathroom, so guests will need to use the bathrooms in the house.

The property also features a firepit and a braai area for guests to use.

Situated at the base of the cliff where the vultures nest, we had the best viewing spot in Marakele. The farm house is rustic but exactly how it should be for its location and perfect for relaxing inside or outside.

We had a weekend with 3 adults and 4 small kids at this lovely place. A good place to have a chilling weekend within in the nature!
