If you want a stay in an awesome accomodation, hosted by great people in amazing surroundings, visit Tomjachu! We stayed in the Rock house for three nights and it was wonderful. A clean house with a very good bed, shower and kitchen. But the best part was outside, a braai, a wood fire, private pool and a hammock. Waking up one day with curious monkeys in front of the house and the other morning the zebras surprised us with a visit. One word, amazing!

It sounds like you had a great time in Rock House! Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review. We are delighted the zebra came to pay you a visit - they like to use the pool there as a watering hole sometimes!
We hope to see you again, and thank you for visiting us.

This is a lovely location and quiet remote but if you like to walk, bike or just chill this is one for the list. Dined in the main lodge first night which was all excellent and then went back to self catering (Braai) for the last two nights. Staff service was excellent. Only issue is the road in to the property is rough....but hey that’s Africa! Forgot to mention the Zebra that came to visit us on the first morning.....

Thank you for your comment on the roads - due to the rainy season our roads do become rough sometimes, but we make every effort to keep them in a driveable condition for our guests.
We hope you will visit again soon.

We had a wonderful stay at Tomjachu - helpful staff, delicious food and wonderful surroundings. The best place to unwind and recharge the batteries. We loved it and can't wait to fo back. Great walking on the farm - it is full of lots of different birds and animals. We saw newly born Impala amongst many others

We spend 7 nights at Tomjachu and loved it. Some other guests didn’t book that long and regretted it. Tomjachu is a fantastic place for both singles, couples and families. The property is beautifull and you can choose to do guided tours (walking or driving) with ex-photographer and conservation enthousiast Jack, or stroll/mountainbike around yourself to observe the animals. The pool is overseeing the property allowing you to relax with a great view. With Kruger Malelane gate only 45 minutes away, it is a convenient location to explore the park from. Flanked by lovely host Cheryl, chef Vuyo prepares fantastic breakfasts and dinners everyday. I don’t say it often, but this is a place that I would like to come back to and can recommend to anyone.
