Kedar Country Hotel

About the Accommodation

Kedar Country Hotel, Conference Centre & Spa is built on the historic farm of President Paul Kruger in Boekenhoutfontein. The main Kruger House is a museum and showcases a wide variety of Kruger memorabilia.

Kedar is currently an area of some 1200 acres, which has been game fenced and populated with a wide variety of game, including eland, blesbok, impala, bushbuck, nyala, kudu, zebra, blue wildebeest, pygmy hippos and giraffe. Invaluable environmental work was undertaken to restore the wetlands and remove alien vegetation. Prolific bird life has in turn been attracted.

The property boasts 60 stone built rooms, Royal and a Presidential suite as well as 7 Conference venues. Other facilities include an outstanding restaurant with many Boer War memorabilia, a large swimming pool, game drives and an enclosure housing Stoffel and Matilda, two specimens of the endangered Pygmy Hippo species. In the evenings the Metswedi bar allows guests to partake of sun downers while watching the sunset over the natural bush.

Accommodation at Kedar Country Hotel, Conference Centre & Spa offers 65 African-themed, rustic, stone and thatch rooms comprising 12 Standard twin rooms and 33 Deluxe rooms, 15 Super Deluxe rooms with outdoor showers in enclosed gardens, 3 Lakeside Suites, a Royal Suite with outdoor shower, plunge pool and fireplace and a Presidential Suite with plunge pool, fireplace and gazebo.

All the rooms are decorated with vibrant, hand painted ethnic print fabrics and African artwork – a true reflection of the treasures of Africa. All rooms have a TV and tea & coffee-making facilities.

A traditional rondavel-shaped royal meeting house – a Lekgotla – seats 24 people and houses authentic Tswana antiques and historical artefacts dating back to the Iron Age. The entrance to the Lekgotla is “guarded” by a Tswana warrior sculpture, created by renowned artist, Adam Madebe.


All this, just one and a half hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and only 20 minutes from Sun City and the Pilanesburg Game Reserve – home of the Big Five.
