Walking softly along the pathway through swathes of wild flowers, your footfalls match your heartbeat and silence weaves its way to the river. It feels like you are utterly alone in the world. Your senses tune in….to the mulchy fragrance underfoot…. the taste of clean air on the tip of your tongue and to the sudden muted sound of a bushbuck as it turns and bounds off the pathway ahead of you.

You pause at the curve of the river whose calm face reflects the cloudy skies and the world seems thoroughly magical. Take some time to restore your spirit at the tranquil haven, The River Wellness & Spa at Zwakala River Retreat in Magoebaskloof. Five self-contained Scandanavian-style timber cabins are tucked into the pine forest overlooking the languid curves of the Broederstroom river with sliding glass doors to bring the outdoors in.

Best of all, you can stroll down the path to the River Spa's treatment rooms. Here you can relax and allow yourself to be thoroughly pampered as the sounds of nature filter through - birdsong in the treetops and the soothing sound of the river running. Book a ‘River Goddess Nourishing Skin Therapeutic Journey’ and feel the city stresses seep slowly from your soul.
