Tegwaan is the perfect place to stay if you want to have access to a lot of fun outdoor activities while staying in a place that feels like home. Immersed in nature, Tegwaan is a little ecosystem of its own: with fresh water springs, several fish ponds and Rock Fairies river running through, the grass is always green, the trees are tall and the birds are happy! :-) – Tegwaan – Set just outside of Waterval Boven (one of the most popular weekend destinations among climbers and mountain bikers form Joburg and Pretoria), Tegwaan is a destination in itself: it is the closest place to the Restaurant(-At-The-End-Of-The-Universe) crags, and closely connected to some of the biking and hiking trails. We also have our own ponds and fish, so bring your rope, your hiking shoes, your bike, your fishing rod or your hammock! Your dogs will also love it – and they will be exhausted by the end of the weekend! Tegwaan is also an ideal stopover for travellers: being just a few kms off the N4 on a good road, just halfway between Jo’burg and Kruger National Park, it’s an easily accessible place to break up the drive and enjoy a properly relaxing day by the pool, followed by a braai under the stars and an evening by the fire. Tegwaan has one house and two cottages over 34ha of land, so you’ll always have privacy and quietness. It’s mostly self-catering for now, but inquire about our locally-made breakfasts if you’re interested! – The Pine Cottage – The Pine Cottage is nested in a cosy little pine grove overlooking the Rock Fairies river. It can accommodate 6 people and so is ideal for big families or groups of friends: there’s one master bedroom (en-suite with tub and shower), one twin bedroom (en-suite with shower) and one room with two bunks. The rest of the cottage is open-plan, with the living room opening up to a naturally shaded patio with pic-nic table and braai area. The kitchen is almost fully-equipped: there’s no oven and no dishwasher but housekeeping is included each morning. – Also on the property – The cottage is all yours, but obviously you’re welcome to enjoy the rest of the property as well. Have a walk around and you’ll be amazed at how diverse this little paradise is! Or take a chair and just chill in the garden and see how many different bird species you can spot (we haven’t tried yet but we think there are at least 20 that we spot on a regular basis! The natural panoramic outdoor swimming pool will feel amazing after a day out! Fishing is free for guests. We’re no experts but apparently the bass in our ponds are big, and we made a deal with our partner across the road (Troutways) so that you can also test your fly-fishing skills for free. In both cases it’s catch-and-release. – Other things to note – Dogs are welcome but please note that we do like to let our chickens roam free when there are no dogs around, so please make sure to let us know if you have dogs so that we can keep the chickens safe and you can maybe take your dog off the leach. We charge R60 per dog per night and our standard policy is that dogs should be kept in control at at all times. Off leach at your own risk. Vodacom network is generally okay, but you’ll have to walk around the property a bit to find MTN. No hi-speed Wi-Fi for now but we can give you access to our 3G wireless if you need it. Laundry washing available upon request. Let us know if you need a portable crib, a high chair or toys for your kids. We have a one-year old and a 4 year-old, so we may be able to sort you out. Don't hesitate to inquire about unusual check-in or check-out times. If we don't have back-to-back bookings we're happy to be flexible. Additional mattresses available on request.More

Interaction with guests
Unfortunately we're not always there, but we try to come every second weekend so please don't hesitate to come say hi if you see us! Our friends at Roc n’ Rope manage the bookings for us so you will meet them to get the keys and they are incredibly knowledgeable on activities in the area, and always willing to help. They run a climbing shop/rental/school in town and they organise all sorts of outings and activities (we strongly recommend the Elandsriver waterfall abseiling daytrip!), so don’t hesitate to ask them – they’ll always understand your specific needs (even if you don’t) and make your stay in Boven something that you won’t forget!
