Tomjachu Bush Retreat | A Mid-Year Escape

Tomjachu Bush Retreat effortlessly epitomises tranquillity with its stunning natural setting and warm Lowveld hospitality. Situated a mere  20 minutes from Nelspruit in the heart of Mpumalanga, the Retreat offers an elegant variety of accommodation and an abundance of activities for those wanting to break away for the weekend to escape the hustle and bustle of city life for a few days.

Continuously praised for its spectacular landscapes and pristine bushveld that stretches across the 550-hectare property, the Retreat boasts a variety of ecosystems and habitats to be explored by guests wanting to immerse themselves in the serene pace of the bushveld.  Open grass plains span southwards from the Homestead down to South Dam where fish eagles and fishermen meet, while the rugged and rocky trails leading through the valleys to the Gorge will leave hikers in awe of the masterful creations of nature.

If you are looking for a more intimate experience, the Retreat has a number of breath-taking and secluded picnic spots such as Gordon’s Pools, where you will be surrounded by a natural orchestra of birdlife and accompanied by the tricking sounds of waterways. Picnic baskets can be arranged on request with delicious treats crafted by the chefs. For those who like to keep it low-key and relaxed in the bush, why not add a bottle of award-winning wine to your basket?

Guided nature drives along the winding trails of the Retreat are also available, with a stop at Tomjachu Hill to appreciate a typical Lowveld sundowner with busbuck barking in the valleys below, and giraffe peering impudently at you through the trees.


Tomjachu Bush Retreat has a variety of accommodation options to suit weekenders or long term holiday goers wanting to escape and rejuvenate after a busy year. The retreat has three cottage style options; Keepers Cottage is perfect for a private weekend escape in the bush, Rock House for the romantics wanting to reconnect in style, and the newly renovated Bush Cottage, which is hidden away from the rest of the world and a great option for small groups of friends looking for an intimate bushveld break. All the cottages have full self-catering facilities, or guests can choose to dine in the Homestead’s elegant dining room.

Why not treat yourself to a unique Lowveld experience with a touch of five-star elegance in the historic Valbonne Villa, the prized jewel of the Retreat. Perched on the edge of the mountain that overlooks the Homestead, the Villa offers spectacular vistas over the mountains below, and will be an unforgettable escape into the bush for the entire family, ensuring that your mid-year break will be one to remember.
