With the business of the holiday season over, it’s time to unwind and find yourself amidst the indescribable beauty of one of the Mpumalanga region’s most tranquil gems, Tomjachu Bush Retreat.
This hidden paradise of 550 hectares provides the perfect setting for you to rest, reconnect and reinvigorate, while you take a break from the routine of daily life. Discover the majesty found at ‘God’s front door’ where you can fill your lungs with the vitalizing mountain air and tap into the serenity of the bush.
With a variety of striking accommodation options and a range of invigorating activities, you are spoilt for choice of how to fill your day. Guided bushwalks, self-guided hiking trails, dam fishing, and nature drives are all on the reserve, so you can dive deep into the bushveld to uncover some of nature’s most precious secrets. From Symphony dam to Gordon’s pool, guests can experience the endless variety of nature, coming together in perfect harmony.
Tucked away in a small gulley below the plains lies the charming setting of Symphony Dam with unspoiled views of the towering hills and the valley stretching far into the distance. Lay peacefully beside the still waters watching the richly-coloured Bee-eaters swoop and chatter in the skies, and listen to pleasant orchestra of frogs, which give the dam its name, tuning up in the early evening.
A little walk down the valley reveals another tranquil and secluded picnic spot called Matumi, set next to a trickling stream leading into the Tipperary River and encircled by a canopy of towering evergreen Matumi trees. Moments spent here looking out into the beautiful open skies, listening to the unwearied chirping of over 265 bird species, and watching plains game roam freely, are, quite simply, tonic for the soul.
A further descent down the valley into the lush, thick bush exposes the wonderful Gordon’s Pools situated at the foot of a gently trickling waterfall. Fill your lungs with the fresh mountain air and indulge in a unique picnic experience, and maybe dip a toe in the cool, clear pools.
Allow Tomjachu Bush Retreat to embrace you in the beauty of nature and return to life refreshed.
