Sun­place Lodge is a fam­ily-owned farm, sit­u­ated in the cleft be­tween the Ma­galies and Wit­wa­ters moun­tain ranges over­look­ing the mag­nif­i­cent Har­te­beespoort scenery. A mere 50-minute drive from Jo­han­nes­burg or Pre­to­ria, this is the ideal lo­ca­tion for those seek­ing a hol­i­day, a quick week­end es­cape, or a stop-over for business trav­ellers who want to be out of the city. Fully sus­tain­able, en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly and off the grid, Sun­place Lodge has evolved over decades based on one fam­ily’s dream to em­brace and share an al­ter­na­tive way of think­ing and liv­ing.



Their phi­los­o­phy – to cher­ish the en­vi­ron­ment, de­velop their life­style ac­cord­ing to the rules of na­ture, and share the re­sults so that oth­ers can ben­e­fit from it too – is the back­bone of this in­spir­ing ven­ture. All are wel­comed with open arms to live the ex­pe­ri­ence and con­sider mak­ing life­style changes of their own.

It all be­gan in the 1970s when Di­eter and Ge­sine Holm and their fam­ily moved to the farm Wel­ge­gund (“well-be­stowed”). The pic­turesque area – which has since been de­clared the UNESCO Ma­galies­berg

The drive for a more sus­tain­able way of liv­ing is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly nec­es­sary in to­day’s world. At­tempt­ing to re­duce our car­bon foot­print by al­ter­ing the way we eat, use en­ergy and get around, can dras­ti­cally im­prove our cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. Gaut­eng’s Sun­place Lodge fol­lows these prin­ci­ples while also pro­vid­ing a beau­ti­ful set­ting for a quiet get­away.
