About Saamrus Guest Farm

Saamrus lies in a woodland valley between a tranquil stream and the foothills of the ancient Magaliesberg mountains.

Each cottage is fenced off and offers a private braai area. All of the cottages have fireplaces, ceiling fans and wall heaters for added comfort in both summer and winter. We provide pet-friendly, private, fully-equipped, self-catering cottages.

At Saamrus you will find wide, open views as well as indigenous woodland and veld. There are easy walks along the river and more adventurous hikes across the hills. It is a paradise for bird watchers and nature photographers.

You should not get stuck, but you will have to drive very slowly if you are coming by car to prevent you car hooking at the bottom.

What a wonderful spot. Peaceful and quiet with excellent walks for the dogs and great stoep and view for the people. We loved it and we will be going back soon, it was everything we needed. Thanks for looking after us so well.

Facilities were OK. I did not get the rooms I booked. Got a lesser equiped room, but still had to pay the same price.The road to the facility is extremely bad. The sign at the entrance is not visible at night and only faces one direction. I drove passed the entrance atleast 3 times. Even though I phoned the owners several times. At one point both their cellphones were on voice mail, frustrating me a lot as I was still lost.

It's the second time we've been here and will come again. Even though we had water pressure and leak problems, you guys sorted it and kept us in the picture, and that's what client service is all about.

What a place! We walked, spent time at the river, saw some amazing birds, and then we relaxed, read and slept! Our cottage was beautiful and had all we needed. I'm about to book our next weekend.
