Sunrise to Sunset was initiated by a group of enthusiastic ladies from RATA (NPC) based on the success of the magnificent Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse concept in the Western Cape. This walk was specifically designed to showcase the diversity of the Magaliesberg Biosphere and enable access to areas otherwise not accessible to the public. It also creates awareness of the existing hiking trails, accommodation establishments, entertainment facilities and natural environment of our area.
As RATA (NPC) we have recognized the need for events in our area, we are creating some! At the same time we have the need to generate funds for our non-profit Company to channel back into the Tourism Industry. RATA has been in existence for more than 18 years and is passionate about growing and giving back!

We had so much fun taking this picture. We are proud supporters of the "Up your game" Campaign for Casual Day.
If you are looking for a creative, different setting for your next conference, training session, private meeting or function. Ons Dorpshuis is the place to be.
Our function coordination team, consisting of the chef as well as the housekeeping administrator, will assist you in creating something “wow” around your normal business operations.
Ideally, centrally situated in Rustenburg close to the civic centre, we prefer small to medium size groups. We cater in most cases for one group at a time, meaning that the whole upstairs area, downstairs area, lounge as well as the garden areas of Ons Dorpshuis 7 are there for the use of your group only. Our two conference rooms can accommodate 20 to 30 delegates respectively when organising training styles and a few more delegates with cinema style.
The boardroom is equipped with air conditioning and white wall for projecting on. We have most electronic and other equipment available, as well as an overhead projector to rent.
Meals and theme functions are arranged with the chef and function coordinator to suite your specific needs.
Please Note: Our Main Boardroom is on the first floor and not accessible for wheelchairs.
for now, tonight
(and maybe a few more)
this is your place
there is history here
a story to tell...
when you kicked off your shoes
you became part of it as well
back in ‘86
a city boy and a farm girl met
they studied, engineers,
produced two children (after a few years)
landed in a world of platinum and chrome
made it their home
in ’89, Oupa Corney was less than fine
the family went to Cape Town
stayed in ‘the Kerkhuis’
to be close to oupa and his new heart...
his brand new start
- next to the hospital -
for family and kin
what a win
eleven years later, 2000
Rustenburg's first Ons Dorpshuis
Kockstreet, mid town
2002 afforded no rest
this time in the west
Ons Dorpshuis 1 had land to spare
in 2003 Ons Dorpshuis 3
built right there
in 2005 Ons Dorpshuis 5
a home for the team
birds and trees
a perfect square
symmetrical, see through, safe
castle on the corner of Kloof and Fourth
our first four star rooms
a view to the north
from the castle balcony
a ‘for sale’ sign over the road
Ons Dorpshuis 6
the magic again
then, empty land
to the east
desperate for an extending hand
Ons Dorpshuis 7
rendezvous and meetings
return guests, blessings and greetings
2010, Soccer World Cup
a place in the world
2011, Ons Dorpshuis 8
ramps, rails and open space
12 years later
we see the gems,
right under our feet
Ons Dorpshuis 1!
dream, extend, refine, repeat
August 1, 2012
Ons Dorpshuis 9
what a life!
somewhere to return to
from hobby to business,
now a life over flowing…
retro radios, quilts
the mirror collection,
small bits of reflection
people and things
all in one place
this wonderful space
25 years have passed since that first family trip.
Oupa Corney is alive and well. 77 years old, he is one of South Africa's longest living heart transplant recipients.
Since 2000 we have worked hard to establish and grow Ons Dorpshuis Guest House from only a few Self Catering units to a combined mix of 47 different three and four star graded rooms.
We are currently an established and well-known brand in Rustenburg and we are proud to be affiliated with the UNESCO Registered Biosphere. We have succeeded to find the balance between giving our guests either a luxurious stay in our four star graded guest houses or a more practical budget stay in our three star graded self-catering apartments.
All our facilities, rooms and houses have a definite “WOW” factor but simultaneously provide a place that makes each person feel right at home. You will be greeted with a well-dressed, well trained and friendly face at reception and also be transported in our newly branded vehicles.
We have been complimented on our creativity and unexpected practical approach to everything! We have recently revamped our courtyard to make it softer on the eye and universally accessible for everyone.
Guests now can buy something for the sweet tooth at our Candy Corner Shop and then head towards our well stocked library. You can either relax with a good book or enjoy the sun by the pool or work of some of the stress in our gym. The art lovers will feel at home amongst the many original artworks. This live exhibition includes paintings, sculptures and welded metal landscape art pieces by our local artist Hannatjie Visser.
The majority of our guests are people travelling to Rustenburg to work in the area. We are however perfectly situated to accommodate guests, travelling between South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.
Due to our close proximity to Gauteng as well as pleasant northwest weather, we are also the answer to weekend and leisure guests, looking for a reasonable price and an interesting place to stay. You now have the opportunity to make use of our Weekend Package deal that gives you a reason to explore Rustenburg and all it has to offer.
Together with RATA, Ons Dorpshuis has launched a new community project to help make the streets of Rustenburg more accessible to Tourists. We place newly painted street names on the corners of the designated streets in easy view of passing motorists. Ons Dorpshuis is also the proud accommodation sponsor for the very first RARA Sunrise to Sunset 100km Magaliesberg Biosphere Woman’s Walk.
To put a cherry on a very large Ons Dorpshuis Cake we present our new established BEE Company, La Rona Hospitality Services, which is a registered company with a workers trust, rewarding loyalty of our hardworking and dedicated employees.
We are small enough to care, and big enough to give you choice. We are definitely not just a Guesthouse – Watch This Space!!
