Phil & Tig make excellent hosts at the Owl Cottage which is situated near the top of the Magoebaskloof Pass near Haenertsburg. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in August 2016. The cottage has ample space for a family of 5 and the views over the valley are simply breathtaking. Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful stay at Owl cottage. Phil and Tig were very welcoming and went out of their way for us. Fully equipped kitchen means just that. And the electric blankets on a July night were great. Thank you so much. We will certainly be back.

About the neighborhood
Magoebaskloof is 25kms from Tzaneen and 15kms from the village of Haenertsburg in Limpopo. We are situated in a mountain pass surrounded by beautiful forest and plantation. We are a great location for hiking and bird watching. We have eagles soaring above us and monkeys jumping through our trees. Just come and relax or go fishing, birdwatching or zip lining above a fabulous river gorge. Our cottage has private parking a under a carport immediately next to the entrance
