Zvakanaka Farm in Louis Trichardt

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.

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.

Had a great camping experience here. It is a well-kept place away from town. Only disadvantage was the road noise from the N1, but the views were spectacular and the hosts were friendly.

A camper's paradise!! While it's a 4-hour drive from JHB, if you have the time, it's DEFINITELY worthwhile!! A spectacular camping location, limited campsites to keep numbers down; all sites well secluded from each other and with great views of the mountains and surrounding bush. Just spectacular! Each site also has a concrete deck and shelter, with electricity, stove and kettle. The ablutions are also very clean with hot water always available.Whilst the farm itself is not huge, there is plenty of space to roam freely and safely - various walks in the mountains, a lovely little swimming pool (literally in the bush!). there are also many day-trip destinations of interest (including game parks and zip-lining!).And to top it all, the hosts (Gail and Alistair) were superb!! Kind, responsive, and hugely helpful in terms of their knowledge of the region. THANK YOU Gail and Alistair! We'd LOVE to be back!!

What an amazing place! The bush experience at Shady John's is the absolute best. We are going to definitely come back again. The owners are so lovely and accommodating and they went out of their way to come and say high and let us know of all the facilities.
