Important Information

* We market Mafube Mountain Retreat as being a peaceful and tranquil retreat for nature lovers, and our guests come with that expectation, so obviously no loud music, revving of motor bikes or loud and drunken behavior are tolerated here.* Breakages will be to your account. * Your stay at Mafube Mountain Retreat is entirely at your own risk and an indemnity form must be signed by you before or on arrival. * No fires may be made on the farm except in the braai facilities provided. Please take very great care especially in the dry season when wild fires can start from a single spark.* Arrival time is between 2.30pm and 7.30pm, If you will be arriving later please contact management to arrange. Departure time is before 09.30 am. Mafube Mountain Retreat is easily accessible by car or bus but it has 3 km of dirt road which is not suitable for very low profile cars, like sports cars, especially in the rainy season. As is usual on farm roads, if you are driving a low car, you will need to drive on the higher parts of the road in places.

Everything awesome, ensure you stay for atleast 3 nights...2 nights just feels so little you would wish you stayed for longer. I'm definitely coming back for the whole week.

The accommodation was simple but clean. The views were amazing. The accommodation is about 30 minutes from Clarens so it's far enough to enjoy some peace and quiet but near enough to pop into town for lunch.

Mafube mountain retreat is a beautiful oasis close to Clarens but far enough to avoid the crowds. There’s entertainment for the kids and each place is spaced out enough so you get your own privacy. Lovely walks are available too and you get to see real dinosaur footprints.

We love the walking trails, unique dinosaurus footprints, dedicated support staff, friendly hosts, clean and quiet surroundings, a perfect retreat centre.We would like to see the markings of the trails repainted, a shade/shelter at or near the dino footprints or at the viewpoint.
