weekend getaway (Pretoria)

Nestling in the northern tip of the Drakensberg in Limpopo Province, Graceland Eco Retreat offers a relaxed environment in an almost untouched and scenic landscape. The retreat is situated on 85 Hectare spanning the valley and is ideal for hiking and birding enthusiasts, although total relaxation is also encouraged.

Situated roughly 50km North-East of Polokwane (3 hours from Pretoria) the retreat offers an opportunity to view a variety of small game including our giraffes named Elvis, Priscilla and Lisa Marie. There are also Kudu, Impala, Klipspringer and Waterbuck. You may catch a glimpse of them whilst hiking, enjoying your morning coffee or sundowners on one of our terraces, pergolas or at the splash pool with a view of the valley.

The area around Graceland offers many different activities and points of interest that cater for both the more adventurous and athletic guests as well as for those that want to explore and enjoy the nature and culture. Nearby activities include trout and bass fishing, mountain biking, hiking and zip lining.

Magoebaskloof, Haenertsburg and the surrounding area is well known for its natural beauty and regular festivals including the annual Spring Festival, Holistic Festival and Berry Festival. The festivals celebrate the work of local artists and crafters as well as locally produced products such as a variety of pickles, jams, chutneys, cheese and so much more.

Graceland Ecoretreat is part of the Kudu River Valley Slackpacking trail together with our neighbour Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge, a well recognised birding and hiking destination in South Africa.
