Welcome to your Home in the Bush
Tomjachu is an exclusive, family-owned private nature reserve set in over 550 hectares (1300 acres) of game fenced mountain bushveld where family, peace and nature embrace one another and special memories are forged forever.
Whether you are looking for adventure or relaxation, with family, friends, or your loved one, Tomjachu offers something for everyone. On our trails, tracks and roads you can hike amongst the abundant plains game and through mountains and valleys, mountain bike through the bush on easy or challenging routes, enjoy a nature drive or guided bushwalk with our experienced ranger, or try your hand at fishing for bass and bream in our dams.
Or you can simply unwind by the pool, listening to the orchestra of over 265 bird species, as the fresh mountain air trickles up from the valley below.
We accommodate 14 guests at the Homestead and three delightful cottages, each with their own unique character and romance. We are additionally blessed with spectacular bush locations to enjoy memorable bush dinners under the stars, or picnics at one of our many picnic sites around the property.
Our multi award-winning Valbonne Villa offers the exquisite luxury of a 5-star TGCSA, self-catering Villa suitable for 6 couples or 12 guests sharing – fully serviced. Regional winner and national runner up of the Lilizela Toursim Awards for four consecutive years in 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017.
Whether self-catering or choosing to dine with us in our elegant dining room at the Homestead, good food and great atmosphere are assured. Our relaxed, informal and highly professional team are sure to make your stay an indelible memory.

Our Commitment to Responsible Tourism
We offer quality service, through dining to outdoor activities, which reflect, complement, and enhance the property. Tomjachu is marketed in ways which reflect the natural, cultural and social integrity of the farm, and which encourage appropriate forms of tourism.
We also adopt equitable business practises including charging fair prices for accommodation and services. Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) are carried out throughout the lifecycle of our Tourism Operation – including the planning, building and refurbishment stages, and also to ensure that negative impacts are reduced to the minimum and maximising positive ones. We use resources sustainably, and reduce waste and over-consumption.
Natural diversity sustainably is managed well, and where appropriate restored; and consider the volume and type of tourism that the environment can support, and respect the integrity of vulnerable ecosystems and protected areas.
