About Mafube Mountain Retreat
Mafube Mountain Retreat is a little slice of heaven; set in an amphitheatre of colourful sandstone cliffs with stunning views from every window, it is the perfect place for a bit of soul therapy. It is a wonderful place to clear your head and experience the peace and tranquillity of unspoiled Africa.
Mafube Mountain Retreat is situated on a 465-hectare farm in the Eastern Free State Highlands, which is one of the most beautiful areas in South Africa. It is a place to escape the crowds and hassles of city life. It is a place to bring the children during the holidays, away from the shopping malls, television and computers.
Explore the hiking trails and mountain paths. Visit the waterfalls, pools and caves, bird watch, fish or canoe; or simply unwind, in a place where the silence sings.
We are only a 20-minute drive from the popular tourist village of Clarens, where there are many good restaurants, shops and art galleries. The town also has an 18-hole golf course.
