Take off your shoes…step into the cool, clear water of the Broederstroom River and let your tingling toes send a message to your brain that it’s time to relax. Zwakala River Retreat is hidden away on an eco-friendly family farm in Magoebaskloof, Limpopo where horses and sheep graze knee-deep in wildflowers and the dog menagerie lives a life of sheer bliss. The northern-most craft brewery is based here – a winning combination of award-winning beers, gourmet burgers and a fabulous vibe. Stay in one of their unique, private cottages or the off-the-grid campsite, surrounded by a wall of fragrant bushes, tucked into the bend of the river where rapids feed a small waterfall, so you are just a hop, skip and happy jump away from a daily dip. The grassy campsite with a covered, solar-lit, spacious kitchen; fireplace, flush loo and hot-water shower, has space for 16 family or friends, so switch off the phones and simply soak up the lazy, sunny days. Zwakala lives up to its name meaning ‘come closer’… closer to nature, those you love to travel with… and to yourself.
