Graceland Eco Retreat welcomes you…

Nestling in the northern tip of the Drakensberg in Limpopo Province, Graceland Eco Retreat offers a relaxed environment in an almost untouched and scenic landscape.

The retreat is situated on 85 Hectare spanning the valley and is ideal for hiking and birding enthusiasts, although total relaxation is also encouraged.

Bordering on the forests and plantations of Magoebaskloof and the Woodbush Forest Reserve, Graceland offers guests the opportunity to enjoy a unique kind of Bushveld. The retreat overlooks the Kudu River Valley with views all the way to Mooketsi and the mountain range beyond.

“No matter how far a person can go, the horizon is still way beyond you”.
Zora Neale Hurston

The area is famous for its unique birdlife and the mountain bushveld with its granite formations and boulders is home to such birds as the Verreaux, Crowned and Long-Crested Eagle, Lanner Falcon, Alpine and African Black Swift as well as the famous African Fish Eagle.

Situated roughly 50km North-East of Polokwane the retreat offers an opportunity to view a variety of small game including our giraffes named Elvis, Priscilla and Lisa Marie. There are also some Kudu, Impala, Klipspringer and Waterbuck. You may catch a glimpse of them whilst hiking, enjoying your morning coffee or sundowners on one of our terraces, pergolas or at the splash pool with a view of the valley.

Graceland Eco Retreat is totally off the grid and uses solar power for all lights and geysers without compromising on creature comforts. Solar powered batteries are available to charge cell phones and tablets.

Although we offer a 24 hour Wi-Fi connection the cell phone connection and quality fluctuates, something we aim to enjoy along with no television.

Graceland is a work in progress and as we develop the retreat additional accommodation and services will become available keeping the needs of our guests in mind.


Graceland Eco Retreat very proud to be featured in South African Country Life – February 2016
