Snymanshof Thaba Tholo (Mountain of the kudu) Mountain Retreat and game farm is only 36 km west of Vanderbijlpark (100 km from Johburg) close to Vaaloewer. This comfortable fully equipped self-catering chalet sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms with two bathrooms and offers picturesque vistas of the farm and roaming game far below on the plains. It is just the destination for a family-getaway.

The other facility on the farm, Snymanshof self-catering or fully-catered Lodge (see separate web page on farmstay) is the ideal destination for weddings, conferences and anniversaries or just a tranquil family get-away. There are 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms with TV in the lounge area. The chapel and function hall seats 156 guests. The dam, waterfall and dense bush areas are wonderful backgrounds for photos

The farm is 720 ha and approximately 50% of Snymanshof is open grassveld and the other 50% is covered with koppies with beautiful indigenous trees. Nature lovers, hikers, mountain bikers and bird-watchers will really enjoy spending many hours in the dense bush areas and koppies.
