Most guests that come to Birdsong cottages want to engage with nature by strolling through the bush, taking refuge from the hot African sun by dipping in the farm pool or enjoying the peaceful sounds of birdsong. The farm pool is situated next to one of the store rooms that guests drive past when going to the reception. There is also a mini play ground for the kids at the pool.

For the more adventurous, this secluded nature farm offers hiking trails with splendid views. In addition, game lovers can view various types of wildlife including warthog, zebra and several antelope species. Although boasting two large dams and several smaller ponds on the property, the dams’ water levels are dependent on rain and may at certain times be dry.

If you have dreamt of an intimate wedding in the bush under African skies, consider what Birdsong cottages have on offer. Lush private gardens surround the walkway to the romantic quaint thatched chapel. The 60-seater chapel has a large window overlooking the valley where the bride and groom exchange their views. If an African outdoor ‘I do’ is more your style, why not have your special ceremony in the bushveld surrounding the pool area? Do not be surprised if some free roaming small game arrives as unexpected wedding guests!

The ‘Uitkyk’ serves as a lovely open-air reception venue with ample parking for guests. Alternatively, you can opt to have the banquet on the spacious lawns of the pool area encircled by African bush. We are happy to set the tables and create a delicious feast menu to enhance your wedding festivities.

The brand new "Koi Pond" reception venue is a 60 seater venue ideal for indoor wedding receptions, events, functions, launches, family reunions and more. The venue boasts a magnificent indoor koi pond which is the main feature of the hall, as well as a unique bar and serving counter, with a beautifully decorated seating area for guests to enjoy their meal. Call us today for more information.

The recent addition of the Edwin Cameron Boma at Birdsong Cottages is the perfect setting for outdoor wedding receptions, conference breakaways and teambuildings, family and group get-togethers and functions. It is also ideal for romantic evenings for two in the heart of the bushveld with the fire glowing and the starry sky up above.
