About Salem Farm House

If you are travelling to Sun City, Pilanesberg or Botswana, Salem Farm House offers fantastic rooms, tranquility and hosts that understand hospitality. We are situated in one of the most mountainous regions in the North West Province, with a landscape that is rich in nature and history. Here you can simply relax and take in the aroma of the bushveld; the garden is full of wild birds and amazing trees of all kinds.

Salem Farm House is located just 50 km from Sun City and the popular Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Accommodation is offered in Family Rooms, Twin and Double Rooms and a separate Cottage. By arrangement, we can also provide home-style meals such as potjiekos or braais. Tea and coffee-making facilities are available at all times, DStv can be activated on request, and we offer Internet access.

In addition, we have a very unique bar and braai area called the ‘Old Trader’, a bit of old and nostalgic, as well as flaming bonfires under the darkest night skies imaginable. We also have a great farm-style dam pool to keep you cool on warm days and nights. Walk up the hiking trail to what will seem like the top of the world - the views from the top of the mountains are spectacular. Horse riding can also be arranged.

Conference Venues: We can also cater for small weddings, functions and bush-style conferences for up to 50 people.

We loved our stay at the wonderful farm house. The rooms were great, the kitchen very well equipped and Linda just spoilt us with great food! Certainly a place to recommend.

I really had a very pleasant stay. The surroundings, hosts, food, and cottage - what top class! Will definitely go again!

We would stay again at Salem, as we had such a warm welcome from the delightful family, who even braaied for us in the evening. We would have preferred en-suite rooms, but these were unavailable as the guesthouse had been full the night before. Sweet, rustic, quirky decor, kind hosts and truly fascinating conversation made for a memorable stay.
