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.
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.
