Welcome to Riverman Cabin
Nestled in the beautiful valley of Tonteldoos, Riverman Cabin is the perfect place to exchange traffic for donkeys lazily grazing, rushed lunches for a picnic in the veld and city noises for an evening song, sung by crickets and orchestrated by frogs. Riverman Cabin is situated in the Tonteldoos Valley, +-30 km northeast of Dullstroom, which is approximately a 3-hour drive from Johannesburg.

All the cabins are fully furnished and equipped for a homely self-catering experience. All the cabins are open plan with cosy indoor fireplaces, as well as private, external braai areas with complimentary wood stock for each night of your stay..
Riverman Cabin is a pet-friendly establishment. Kindly visit the FAQs page to familiarize yourself with our policies regarding pets.
Please note: The roads become slippery when wet. We recommend vehicles with a high ground clearance. Guests travelling with low vehicles must take extra care on the gravel road – we are in Tonteldoos, 30kms of gravel road from Dullstroom (only 20kms gravel road if you travel via Middelburg/Stoffberg).

Our dams lie waiting for the avid willing to rise with the sun – coffee flask in hand for a sunrise stroll around the dams. If this doesn’t tickle your fancy, sleep in and awake to the sounds of abundant bird life, then bask in the sun with a captivating read.
The farm boasts luscious trees, streams running through the dams and bold mountains, all of which contribute to the unique variety of fauna and flora to be found in the area, including endangered species such as the Crane family, Oribi, Aardwolf and Arum Lilies. Get to the top of the koppies any way you like, just as long as you take the time to soak in the panoramic grandeur of your surroundings and enjoy a sundowner with the mountains fading into the horizon.
If you are still insatiable...
