Nestled against a mountain on an unknown plateau high in the Northern Drakensberg, Seletwane is the ultimate refuge and getaway dream. Seletwane looks east over the Drakensberg escarpment with the protection of a mighty mountain buttress behind it. There are two superb log-and-thatch cabins.

No. 1 Cabin sleeps up to seven and consists of the lounge, kitchen, dining area and an upstairs bedroom divided into singles and a double bed separated by a curtain divider. There is a shower and toilet downstairs. The adjacent room sleeps two people comfortable but can accommodate up to three people and has its own shower and toilet. All the beds are single beds but we can supply double beds.

No. 2 Cabin sleeps up to six. Upstairs is two rooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. Downstairs is the lounge, kitchen and dining area. There you will also find a room with two single beds with a spectacular view of the mountain reflecting in the dam. The toilet and shower is also downstairs.

Wood for the fireplace and braai area is for sale.

The cabins operate mainly on solar power however the fridge, stove and shower geysers run on gas. Candles and oil lamps are provided for ambience.

The cabins are fully equipped with towels, linen, cutlery and crockery and under cover parking for one vehicle is provided.

The dams are well stocked with rainbow trout and each cabin has his own dam for its guests private use. There are no rod fees however trout removed from the dam will be charged at R50 per kilogram. Bring your own fly-fishing tackle. Bushman paintings can also be viewed on the farm.

Seletwane is for trout fishing, hiking, mountain biking, birding, nature lovers or ... that most important activity of all, relaxing - and is perfect for couples or groups.

Located just three kilometers off the top of Oliviershoek Pass, Seletwane is less than two hours from Durban and three hours from Johannesburg. Whilst providing isolation and privacy, sightseeing and good restaurants abound within a few kilometers of Seletwane.
