Get back into nature in a tranquil and relaxed  environment


Imbabali Retreat & Venue is situated an hour from Johannesburg or Pretoria, nestled in the foothills of the spectacular Magaliesberg Mountain Range, which boasts a rich history. The foothills provide an excellent setting for various outdoor activities, including hiking, birdwatching, mountain biking, and picnicking.

We have an exceptionally diverse abundance of fauna, flora, and birdlife. In the evenings you can hear the Jackal calling amongst other animals and insects that seem to have left city life.

Driving onto the property you will find yourself surrounded by nature, many trees, and land that is un-spoilt, with just a 350-meter sand road leading to our various accommodation options. We have the Wild Olive Chalet sleeping 4 guests, the Grapevine House sleeps 10 guests, and our 3 guest cottages 1, 2 & 3 overlook a small dam, with the Magaliesberg Mountains as the backdrop to your magnificent view. The sun sets behind the mountains and promises to be breathtaking on most evenings.

A hearty breakfast is served at your accommodation but must be ordered in advance. All our accommodation is serviced daily for your convenience, by our friendly staff, allowing you to kick back and relax.

Secure parking is available for all guests.

We offer fishing (Bass, Carp, Tilapia, and Yellow) on a catch-and-release basis. You will need to bring your own bait and tackle. You can swim in the dam or float on a tube, try your hand on a kayak or canoe and there are jungle gyms for the kiddies. You can choose to enjoy your private plunge pool on the deck at the cottages, have a braai, or enjoy the pool at The Venue. Have a picnic at the dam, in our manicured gardens, or take a short walk to the river.

The Venue is available to host Conferences, Meetings, Functions, Weddings, Team Building, and more… in a relaxed environment under thatch.
