About Thirsty Falls Nature Retreat

Deep in the heart of the Magaliesberg Mountains lies a true gem, cradled amidst the rugged splendour of the African bush and cliffs as a backdrop. Thirsty Falls offers spectacular views and absolute privacy in a tranquil environment.

The five self-catering cottages are fully-equipped and consist of either one- two- or three bedrooms , and 2 Studios (Holiday Flats). Relax at the Eco natural water swimming pool , sip sun downers on the shady patios surrounded by indigenous terrain, while watching abundant bird life and breath taking sunsets. Star-filled night skies are an unforgettable sight, with call of the wild , and for the more chilly winter evenings, there is a lovely log fireplace; gas heater in the Studios. Braai facility on all patios.

We spent the weekend in the Protea cottage and loved the views and the peace and quiet. The many bird calls are the only sounds you hear. The cottage is great value for money. It has both a shower and spa bath and is spacious enough for a couple.

Thirsty Falls is a little gem in the Magaliesburg with beautiful views. The unit is immaculate and the hosts made us feel welcome. Peace and quiet all around with a beautiful natural pool were one can cool off.

Clean, everything in good order, very kind and gracious hosts, spectacular views. Last mile a little rough, but accessible with a normal car if you take it slow.

Wow, what an awesome place, clean, neat and has everything you really need to have a relaxing holiday away from the hustle of everyday life. The host and hostess are very welcoming and friendly, I will definitely be visiting again soon.

This cottage was immaculate, comfortable (a lot aren’t) and absolutely private. Set in amongst trees , it was quiet and peaceful. The hosts are very hospitable and helpful without being obtrusive. We loved our stay.
