Ferns Creek is a comfortable, modern, luxurious and romantic self-catering chalet situated on the edge of the Tonquani River. Enjoy the view of the river, bush, koppie and riverfront lawn and enjoy the freedom, sounds and beauty of nature while soaking your feet in the clean and fresh river pools.

It is an off-the-grid chalet which is well equipped with solar power and gas (no electricity).

For the more adventurous, several amenities are on offer in and around Utopia.

The space
Ferns Creek offers 3 bedrooms. 2 With King Size beds, en-suite bathrooms, DSTV and balconies and the 1 even has a private mini lounge. The third bedroom has 2 single beds and an en-suite bathroom. Guests are offered a downstairs bathroom (toilet & shower) and an outdoor shower for those who would like to experience a shower close to nature. Bath towels, linen and swimming towels are included. Tennis courts, a children playpark, putt-putt and a giant chess set is situated at the main building. A picnic blanket and basket as well as plastic bags (for litter) is available should guests decide to make use of one of our many lovely picnic spots. Please remember that Utopia Nature Estate is a place where guests come to feed their souls with peace, tranquility, silence and the sounds of nature. For this reason no loud music is allowed in the chalet or anywhere else at Utopia. Undercover parking as well as other private parking is available. A cozy indoor braai room for all types of weather is available which is equipped with a gas and wood fireplace as well as a mini coal stove for cold winter nights. The indoor downstairs lounge is equipped with a gas fireplace. Enjoy stargazing in the privacy and safety of the upstairs balconies or lie in bed while watching the moon rising from behind the koppie. Be on the lookout for the odd Kudu, Bushbuck and Warthog popping by for a sip of water. Monkeys and Baboons are regular visitors. They will not harm you as long as you keep your distance and do not challenge them. They are huge opportunists and watch your movements all the time! Please do not feed them and ensure that you close the outside doors and windows when you are not near. They are very clever and will enter a room if you have left the window even slightly open. Best is to close the windows when you leave the room. Sliding doors should be kept closed if you are not in the room. Believe me, the little monkeys fit easily through the openings of the security gates! To ensure your safety at night, please lock the braai room sliding door and enjoy the nightlife from one of the balconies.
