Ribbokkloof Hiking Trail

Middelburg, Mpumalanga

Ribbokkloof Lodge is a unique holiday farm situated in Mpumalanga, offering an unforgettable holiday experience. With its breathtaking natural setting, the lodge is a piece of African Paradise, yet conveniently located just 2 hours drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Apart from providing the perfect break away from civilisation and an ideal family holiday spot, Ribbokkloof also offers a unique Farm Wedding Venue The Sugar Bean @ Ribbokkloof for an authentic, vintage Farm wedding.

Ribbokkloof combines the best of rustic charm and old fashioned farmhouse hospitality with absolute comfort, with a choice of B&B chalets, self-catering chalets or camping site accommodation. Our chalets are privately positioned in the kloof, where the gentle murmuring of a mountain stream and rock pools will lull you to sleep every night. Or, for the more adventurous, camping under the stars is the perfect way to enjoy being close to nature.

Ribbokkloof forms part of a series of Gelykwater Bonsmara Cattle Farms, so every morning guests wake up to the sound of the cattle walking down the kloof path to drink from the stream near the chalets, while the calves play in their crèche. In addition, Ribbokkloof’s beautiful horses will enthral all visitors, young and old alike.
