Hoopoe Haven Guest House offers secure, affordable three star Bed and Breakfast and AA highly recommended self-catering cottages and luxury tented camps near Fourways.

Our Karee Tree Conference Centre and Function Venue can provide world class conference or meeting facilities and small intimate functions from baby showers, to dinners or quiet parties or small weddings of up to 50 people.

Hoopoe Haven Guest Lodge is a small and peaceful country guest house, situated in beautiful Chartwell, just behind Broadacres shopping centre in Fourways. It is positioned on 2 acres of landscaped gardens with nearby Horse trails and a beautiful view of the Magaliesburg Mountains. It is a place to relax and unwind in the peace and quiet of the countryside. One can watch the magnificent birdlife, (over 50 different species have been spotted here), while you have sundowners on the patio or a braai on the upstairs balcony or state-of-art Braai area or a cooling swim in our crystal clear pool, with a beautiful sunset in the background.

Luxury Tents

We have jumped on the bandwagon of a new concept called Glamping - "GLAMorous camPING" and have recently completed our very first luxury tents The Spotted Dikkop (Sleeps 3) and The Eagle Owl (Sleeps 6). However, these are not just any tents - they combine the luxury you would expect from Hoopoe Haven with the atmosphere of being outdoors, sleeping in a tent and enjoying the spectacular afternoon sunsets and evening stars while sipping on sundowners or enjoying your braai. It is Hoopoe Haven in a tent!

Spotted Dikkop (3 Sleeper) and Eagle Owl (6 Sleeper)

Each of these ultra luxury tents consist of the following:

Built under a large thatch lapa so that you get maximum protection from the elements Tiled bathroom with both shower and bath (hot and cold water) Carpeted bedroom Carpeted lounge with TV (piped satellite) and climate control.

Outside fully equipped kitchen including gas stove under the thatch patio. Eagle Owl has Serengeti flap doors can be opened out in summer or enclosed in winter. Spectacular braai area looking out onto a secluded expanse of lawn and landscaped gardens.

Please be aware that we are not allowed, by municipality regulation, to hold loud parties.
