Reviews for Mafube Mountain Retreat
Amazing hosts, breathtaking surrounds!
"Perfect place to relax and hike"
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 nights and enjoyed every second of it.
Mafube Mountain Retreat is a beautiful and tranquil escape from the busy life with a rich history. There is plenty to do and see on the farm, and there are walking routes available for both beginners and more advanced hikers. All in all we loved our stay there and would really recommend it. And Hillary and her husband were excellent hosts, assisting us where ever possible. 5/5
Best place in Clarence. Very accommodating
My wife and I have traveled to many countries and places, and this is at the top for one of our all time favorites. If you want to experience nature and quiet, but in comfortable living conditions, this is the place! We make a stay at Mafube a must anytime we visit South Africa.

"An absolute gem"
What a wonderful place! We really enjoyed our stay at Mafube Mountain Retreat. The setting is so beautiful and tranquil and the chalet is very clean and comfortable and we felt very much at home. The walk to see the dinosaur footprints is an absolute must, they are truly amazing. Mafube is the ideal place for nature lovers to come and recharge their 'batteries'. Thank you Hillary and Chris! We will most certainly be back soon!
