Sit back, unwind and experience the Lowveld…

Tomjachu Bush Retreat is an exclusive family owned private nature reserve, renowned for its majestic and tranquil surroundings. Situated only 20 minutes from Nelspruit and 45 minutes from the Kruger National Park, Tomjachu Bush Retreat not only provides a wide variety of activities to adventure seekers but also makes for the perfect location to sit back, relax and experience the Lowveld like never before.

Spend some time away from the daily hustle and bustle of the city and discover what it truly means to unwind. From accommodation charmingly nestled in the bush, to a range of easy-going activities that will take you into the surrounding valley, you will find it all at this Lowveld treasure.

Among the various wonderful accommodations options at Tomjachu, Rock House offers an intimately concealed hideaway with a luxurious thatched aesthetic and huge sliding doors bringing a panoramic view to the foot of your bed. The vast open studio style cottage is beautifully and comfortably appointed with everything you need at arm’s length, including a sensuous plunge pool. Kick-start your weekend away with a day of complete solitude, wrapped-up in the warm atmosphere of Rock House cottage! And on those chilly autumn evenings, you can indulge in a winter cocktail by the Homestead fireplace, and a healthy four course meal prepared by one of our chefs.

For a change of scenery, treat yourself to a few restful hours with a picnic on the banks of South Dam. Take some time to watch the game drift lazily to the waters edge to drink, and to appreciate the melodic song of some of the 265 bird species whilst sipping one of our fine wines on offer.

End the weekend by stepping into a 10 seater open Safari Land Rover, where a professional guide will take you into the surrounding Lowveld mountain bush for a close encounter with a huge variety of game, bird species and diverse plant life, ending way up the mountains at Zebra Heights viewpoint. Here delight in some sundowners accompanied by tales of the property’s history, and let the endless views and peaceful sounds of nature consume you.

Other accommodation options which are ideal for an intimate, laid-back weekend away at Tomjachu Bush Retreat are The Homestead and Keeper’s Cottage, and for families and larger groups, Bush Cottage and Valbonne Villa.
