Kedar Country Hotel  Spa and ConferenceSome 20 years ago, Recreation Africa purchased a portion of Boekenhoutfontein, the historic farm of President Paul Kruger. Over the years, adjoining land has been acquired, culminating in the consolidation of an area of some 1000 acres, which has been game fenced and populated with a
wide variety of game, including eland, blesbok, impala, bushbuck, nyala, kudu, zebra, blue wildebeest and giraffe. Invaluable environmental work has been done to remove alien vegetation and restore the wetlands which attract prolific birdlife.

An African Spa has been built in an idyllic setting, jutting out over a natural wetland lake teaming with fish and birdlife. The Metswedi bar in the evenings allows guests to partake of sundowners whilst watching the sunset over the natural bush. Other facilities include a large swimming pool, game drives and a curio shop. All this, just one and a half hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and only 25 minutes from Sun City and the Pilanesberg Game Reserve – home of the “Big Five”.
