B’sorah Adventures

Hartbeespoort Dam, Broederstroom

B’sorah Adventures is situated near the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains and the historical Hartbeespoort Dam, B’sorah farm is less than an hour away from Johannesburg and Pretoria. Despite being so close, you will find yourself surrounded by breath-taking views and the diverse natural surroundings of our family-run farm.

B’sorah is home to a peaceful retreat, nestled within 1600 hectares of pristine wilderness and rugged cattle country, which offers guests plenty to explore by foot or mountain bike. It includes self-catering tented accommodation, Christian-based conference and group camp facilities and scenic trails for hiking and mountain biking. Swim in one of the cleanest natural rivers in South Africa, roam the hills once fought for during the Boer War, or enjoy the sunset from one of the many rocky outcrops. B’sorah will leave you feeling alive whilst opening your eyes to God’s creation and appreciating the simpler things in life.

For guests interested in experiencing the sights and sounds that the area has to offer, the Hartbeespoort Dam with its many attractions and informative tours are all nearby.

If you love the outdoors and need a relaxing getaway or want to organise a group camp or conference, then B’sorah is the place for you. Our friendly staff look forward to giving you a warm welcome and making your visit as enjoyable as possible.

About Us

Since 1865, many parts of the Hartbeeshoek area, south of the Hartbeespoort Dam, has been owned by various relatives of Commandant Andries Pretorius. Years later, his grandson Colonel Nicolaas Pretorius bought various portions and by 1924 amalgamated the portions into one farm. Colonel Pretorius served many years as a member of Parliament in Cape Town, whilst his wife took care of the farm. Today, his descendants still own and farm on this property known as B’sorah, which means “The Good News”.

With our faith in God and a heart to serve, that is exactly what we strive to offer to others at B’sorah – that bit of good news which we are all looking for in life. Whether it is to retreat to your own small corner of peace where you can reflect and find direction, a fun-filled experience with your family making memories, or if you are in search of a deeper relationship with God and the meaning of His Word, we are passionate in bringing truth and pure joy through the peace that there is to find at B’sorah.

Today, as a family who share a love for people, animals and the outdoors, we would love to welcome you to a farm full of history, beautiful scenery and wildlife, majestic sunsets and the opportunity to reacquaint with the finer things in life that matter the most.
