Bushveldt - Paradise Trust


Hidden away in a clearing surrounded by mature beech forest, Bushveldt is a firm favourite for people wanting to immerse themselves in nature.

Bushveldt’s main cabin sleeps three people with a kitchen and coal range that heats the water for a shower. Close to the main cabin are two separate basic huts that each sleep two people (please note there is no heating in these two huts). Bushveldt is booked exclusively, regardless if it is one person or seven, so you will not have to share this place with other people.

For those of you that enjoy fishing or a refreshing swim, Diamond Lake is an easy 10 minute forest walk. Stoke up the outdoor baths or just sit on the large deck and enjoy the mountain views and birdsong that surrounds this idyllic gem.

There is vehicle access to this cabin.
