Tomjachu is an intimate private bush lodge and private nature reserve, just 20 minutes from Nelspruit, overlooking Kruger’s distant southern boundary. Set in 550 hectares of mountain bushveld within the Crocodile River Mountain Conservancy, walk amongst zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, and kudu and enjoy havens, lakes and lapas on the reserve.
Tomjachu offers a unique experience of flora and fauna in an atmosphere of relaxation, seclusion and tranquillity. Stay in the homely comfort of the safari-style Homestead on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis, or in one of three quaint self-catering cottages each with its own unique character and romantic ambiance. Two even boast private plunge pools.
Valbonne Villa offers the elegant comfort of an exclusive 6-bedroom villa in an eclectic modern colonial style. The deep veranda is perfect for lazing and entertaining, with a rim-flow pool below - perfect for cooling down in the heat. The magnificent elevated views are simply sublime.
Idyllic days are spent on nature drives, hiking, mountain biking and bass fishing. More leisurely pursuits include simply relaxing on the veranda listening to the orchestra of over 265 bird species.
