ABOUT Tomjachu Bush Retreat

Tomjachu is an intimate private bush lodge, just 20 minutes from Nelspruit, overlooking Kruger’s distant southern boundary. Set in 850 ha of bushveld within the Crocodile River Mountain Conservancy, walk amongst zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, and kudu and enjoy havens, lakes and lapas on the estate.

Tomjachu offers a unique experience of flora and fauna in an atmosphere of relaxation, seclusion and tranquility. 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 ambience. Two have private plunge pools.

Valbonne House offers the luxury of an exclusive 6-bedroom villa in an eclectic modern colonial style. Deep verandah perfect for lazing and entertaining, with rim-flow pool below and magnificent elevated views.

Idyllic days are spent on nature drives, hiking, mountain biking and bass fishing. More leisurely pursuits include croquet, boules or simply relaxing on the patio listening to the orchestra of over 265 bird species.
