Now after eight years of ferocious battling by a dedicated team of Wattle Warriors the area is virtually free once more from these nasty interlopers. And with this clearance so nature has returned, many more bird and animal species are recolonising their original home. Also the water table has risen dramatically where the purest water gushes again from erstwhile dry springs. Of all the properties along the edge of the plateau Five Assegais is, without doubt, the finest in terms of views and location. It contains several ecobiomes, with high veldt and middle veldt grassland clothing sweeping hillsides, yellow wood gorges with tree ferns and patches of undisturbed natural vegetation. Which, with phase three of the Estate Development Plan now in place, will be fenced and restocked with the sort of game that would have roamed these heights before the arrival of the San People - the original human inhabitants of the place.

Description

For the discerning lover of country life, Five Assegais Country Estate offers a single very private and exclusive luxury country house, with 3 double bedrooms en-suite and a kid's room for 4 .

Originally built in the 1850s by Paul Kruger on the then main route to the goldfields of Barberton, as a place of rest for the wagon trails before they attempted the Hells Kloof Pass, this charming home has been enlarged and artistically renovated to again offer a luxury retreat in total isolation on this spectacular estate.

Five Assegais Country Estate  boasts an open plan kitchen, sitting and dining room with cozy fireplace, TV, video and DSTV.

The house first opened the guesthouse in 2003 and has since established an enviable reputation as a fishing and wildlife venue of note and as desirable luxury country retreat half way to the Kruger Park. 

Fully equipped and serviced with wonderful walks and trout fishing on dams close to the house.

We allow pets (as long as the owners are well behaved). Quad bikes and scramblers; 4x4s and mountain bikes are also welcome.
