About Saamrus Guest Farm

Saamrus lies in a woodland valley between a tranquil stream and the foothills of the ancient Magaliesberg mountains.

Each cottage is fenced off and offers a private braai area. All of the cottages have fireplaces, ceiling fans and wall heaters for added comfort in both summer and winter. We provide pet-friendly, private, fully-equipped, self-catering cottages.

At Saamrus you will find wide, open views as well as indigenous woodland and veld. There are easy walks along the river and more adventurous hikes across the hills. It is a paradise for bird watchers and nature photographers.

The first section is paved and fine for all vehicles, but the second half of the road can be slippery and difficult for low cars in wet weather. In spite of this, the road is still accessible by car, but if you come with a very low, sporty car, you will find it quite difficult. You should not get stuck, but you will have to drive very slowly if you are coming by car to prevent you car hooking at the bottom.

                                          The accommodation is comfortable but needs some upgrading especially the kitchen

                                          The kettle was filthy to say the least but the lady who greeted us brought me a different kettle. To be honest I do not think we would visit Saamrus again. Very pleased we were in Hoephoep and not Kiewiet or Tarentaal. Lovely environment for the dogs.

                                          What a wonderful spot. Peaceful and quiet with excellent walks for the dogs and great stoep and view for the people. We loved it and we will be going back soon, it was everything we needed. Thanks for looking after us so well.

                                          Dit was n wonderlike wegbreek gewees, die stilte en die geluide van die natuur was op sy beste. Sal net volgende keer n chalet bietjie teen die berg op wil hê. My motor is hoog maar nie 4x4 nie. My twee yorkies sê ook dankie vir die naweek.(RoomsForAfrica translated)It was a wonderful break away, the silence and the sounds of nature was the best. Next time will just want a chalet a little against the mountain. My car is high but not 4x4. My tow yorkies also say thank you for the weekend.

                                          We had a lovely time at this accommodation. We would like to go back again.
