About Zvakanaka Farm

Zvakanaka Farm is located on the south-facing slopes of the eastern Soutpansberg in Limpopo Province and offers a romantic getaway for two, a delightful family cottage for four and two secluded campsites.

There are numerous trails cut on the farm and depending on how much energy you want to exert, you can either take gentle strolls or more serious walks to the very top of the mountain where there are stunning views in all directions.

Zvakanaka Farm is perfectly situated, both for people wanting an easily accessible destination for a tranquil escape, or for those who need a base from which to explore the richly diverse surroundings. If you want to visit the fascinating and beautiful Mapungubwe but would rather overnight on the cool slopes of the Soutpansberg, then you can easily take a day drive; the trip to the park takes approximately two hours via Musina. It is a perfect stop-over for the norther Kruger National Park Gates - Pafuri and Punda Maria. It is also a perfect stop over fror crossing either into or out of Zimbabwe.

Two types of accommodation are available on the farm, namely Igababa Cabin and Madala's Cottage. Both the cabin and cottage are strictly no-smoking zones and we ask that if you are smokers, that you smoke outside as the smell of cigarette smoke clings to the thatch and stays forever. If you really do not think you can comply with this request we would ask that you rather choose alternative accommodation.

Please note that NO pets are allowed.

Family friendly: Madala's Cottage has 2 bedrooms. The 2nd bedroom is ideal for children with two single beds. Lots of space around the cottage for kids to play. The pool is ideal for toddlers. There is a safety net if needed.

Romantic: Both cottages have outdoor double baths and wallow pools and are very private. Bubble bath and bath salts and candles are provided. Luxurious percale cotton linen.

Covid Safety Approved: Our property is prepared according to FEDHASA guidelines. Our staff have been fully trained on COVID-preparedness, and we clean with all madatory disinfectants. You will have no contact with anyone at all, except yourselves.

Great stay. Great hospitality. The beautiful countryside, coupled with spacious interior, a careful choice of funiture, comfortable beds and equipped kitchen as well as those little extras like fresh flowers in a vase, all added up to an enjoyable visit. Very nice outside area. Will be back.

Igababa Cabin is an absolute gem. Very private and intimate with 5 star attention to detail. Thank you so much Al and Gail for sharing this jewel with us. Three nights was simply too short.Mark and Kino Mac Donald, Strand.

What a wonderfully relaxing stay in a beautiful and extremely private cabin. Your attention to detail was fantastic and my partner and I had a fabulous time. We only wish we could have stayed longer, as 2 days were definitely not enough. Thank you for sharing this amazing place. We will be back!
