RHENOSTERHOEK PRIVATE BUSH CAMP
Rhenosterhoek is a 350 hectare working farm with Bonsmara Cattle, a Chicken Hotel for the free range chickens and some game such as kudu, impala, warthogs etc.
A few short hiking trails are marked out and may be combined in a continuous route of approximately 12 kilometres.
This back-to-basic private bush camp is the ideal place to unwind for a few days. It is situated on the farm Rhenosterhoek in the transitional zone of the UNESCO registered Magaliesberg Biosphere, a mere 30 kilometres south of Rustenburg.
This breakaway can provide the ideal opportunity to spend quality time with the family or friends. It can be the chance to set up camp from scratch with the kids’ help, or just move in, if our tents are already rigged.
