Where it all began

We are a "sharing and caring" kind of farm and it is this warmth and love for bringing people together that has spilt over into all that we do.

Zwakala River Retreat is located on our family farm which is high up in the beautiful Magoebaskloof Mountains.  For many years we shared our little "piece of paradise" with a host of extended family and friends.

We always gather together (at every opportunity) to

celebrate all the best things in life.

This usually involves long tables filled with interesting dishes cooked from scratch by dedicated family chefs. Our meals are often accompanied by much wine, singing and laughter.  

Origin Story

What started as a small farm

A few years ago we decided to renovate the original farmhouse and shed. The idea was to turn those buildings into a venue to host markets, weddings and other creative celebrations.

We then built a few more cottages and so our hospitality business began.

A couple of years later Zwakala Brewery was established on the farm. The word Zwakala actually means "come closer". We are proudly South African and love this beautiful, vibrant and colourful province of Limpopo that we live in.
