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. We are 45 minutes from Golden Gate National Park and only a few kilometres away from the border post of the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.

Lesotho’s spectacular Katse Dam is in easy reach and Afriski, of which many of our guests take a day to, is only 80 km from Fouriesburg. The Fouriesburg area is well known for its adventure tourism, including quad biking, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, 4x4 trails and river rafting.

              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.

              A great escape into the quiet countryside of the eastern Free State. Stunning walks on offer with amazing views. The Rondawel was perfect for our family, the children loved climbing the ladder to their upstairs beds. They also had a ball on the zip wire in the play area . Hilary and Chris were so warm and welcoming and we hope to return in the near future.

              Mafube Mountain Retreat is perfectly situated. Surrounded by beautiful mountains, it offers both a spot to relax and enjoy the scenery as a spot to do a lot of things. Activities directly from the house include hiking to dinosaur footprints, rock-art and waterfalls. By car many surrounding places are easily reached, such as Lesotho and Clarence. Perfect location for a family like us (with 4 children) with lots of space and play areas. Very comfortable house and great service, with the close town of Fourisburg providing all the daily needs. We traveled from the Netherlands and stayed for 6 nigh...
