Where you’ll be

Fouriesburg, Free State, South Africa

The Clarens/ Fouriesburg area is a area of outstanding natural beauty bordering Lesotho, in the Highlands of the Eastern Free State! The sandstone mountains contain many fossils and our farm is often visited by Paleontologists who come to see the dinosaur footprints on the property and to look for fossils in the area.
This is the perfect place for a weekend getaway, a family reunion, or a group holiday or retreat. On Mafube you can visit the waterfalls and caves, bird watch, fish or canoe or simply unwind and take in the beautiful mountain lands of the Eastern Free State. Visit the art mecca that is Clarens for great dining, some sport, or even a bit of shopping.
Should you really wish to explore the Eastern Free State, we would recommend a visit to Golden Gate as well as the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho where the popular ski resort of Afriski, attracts many day visitors in Winter.

I am friendly and enthusiastic and love meeting new people! We are living our dream on Mafube Mountain Retreat which we bought with friends in 2006 and have developed into a place where people can come to experience the peace and beauty of Gods creation, and escape the hustle and bustle of city life. I am married to Chris and we are both committed Christians. We have been together for 40 years and have two married children and three Grandchildren. We live with two small dogs and have five beautiful friendly horses which are being trained for out rides for our guests on the farm. I love visiting family and friends and enjoy travelling to new places. I look forward to meeting you and showing you around our stunning farm!
