Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of Imbabali Retreat & Venue. Tucked away at the base of the enchanting Magaliesberg Mountains, this serene haven is just an hour's drive from the bustling cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria.

As you arrive at Imbabali, you'll be greeted by the beauty of nature in its purest form. Here, wildlife roams freely, and lush flora thrives abundantly, creating a truly magical setting for your retreat. The surrounding landscape offers a refreshing break from the chaos of urban life, allowing you to reconnect with the natural world.

Imbabali Retreat & Venue caters to a maximum of 32 guests, with accommodation spread across various options. You can choose to stay in the Grapevine House, the Wild Olive Chalet, or one of the three charming cottages. Throughout your stay, enjoy the convenience of complimentary Wi-Fi and ample secure parking.

Each cottage boasts a private patio with a refreshing plunge pool that offers stunning views of a scenic dam, framed by the awe-inspiring Magaliesberg Mountain range. The Grapevine House, a welcoming double-storey structure, features an open-plan kitchen and dining area with a comforting fireplace. Stay entertained with full DSTV & Netflix and relish the spaciousness of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, including an ensuite master bedroom. The Wild Olive Chalet features a large patio shaded by a magnificent Wild Olive Tree, creating an ideal setting for al fresco dining and barbecues against the backdrop of meticulously maintained gardens.

As the sun sets, the distant calls of jackals and the mesmerizing dance of fireflies on summer evenings create a magical atmosphere that's truly unforgettable.

Imbabali Retreat & Venue offers a range of activities to keep you engaged throughout your stay. You can try your hand at catch-and-release fishing in the well-stocked dam, home to Bass, Carp, Tilapia, and Yellowfish. Take a refreshing dip in the dam or leisurely float on a tube. Explore the water on a kayak or canoe, or let the little ones have endless fun on the jungle gyms.

For those seeking relaxation, Imbabali provides mobile spa facilities, ensuring you can unwind and be pampered in the privacy of your accommodation or amidst the serene gardens. You can also enjoy a scenic picnic by the dam or amidst the manicured gardens or embark on a short walk to the river.
