LOCATION: Nestled on a picturesque Game Reserve, only 15.9 kilometres outside of Nelspruit, on the “Genesis Route” that lies in the heart of Mpumalanga in the Makhonjwa Mountain Range, you will find the 4 star rated Nirvana Country House.  It boasts views of the De Kaap Valley escarpment and also views of Malelane in the distance. The reserve is home to selective grazing animals, smaller “nocturnal” predators and is also the home of Chimp Eden, The Jane Goodall Institute Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The expansive decks, rolling gardens, decadent suspended daybeds, cheerful swings, and spa treatments are but a few of the features that make Nirvana Country House a heavenly experience. Also featuring a variety of conference facilities, a rock swimming pool, a tennis court, birding, and for the extreme sport lovers there is also Paramotor training facilities at the reserve’s private airstrip.

Our Luxury Accommodation has easy access to guided day trips around the Lowveld including Kruger National Park, Sudwala Caves and the many attractions found around the Lowveld.

WHERE LIFE ON EARTH BEGAN: We are situated on the edge of the world’s oldest crater, along the Barberton Greenstone Belt, which is on your way to Barberton, on the R40. When one explores the view of the whole escarpment, Adam’s Calendar, the oldest known man made calendar in the world that tells time and seasons, lies just a couple of kilometres away in direct view. Nirvana Country House offers guided daytrips to Adam’s Calendar and the many mysterious stone circles which may very well be an experience of a lifetime! This is undoubtedly the area where life on earth began and scientists only now admit this with confidence! It has resulted in many members of royalty staying at Nirvana Country House to fulfil their spiritual pilgrimage call to visit Adam’s Calendar and the spiritual porthole/gate situated there.

TO BE IN NIRVANA:  The giant trees and the tranquil vastness of nature, also makes Nirvana an ideal spiritual retreat for both the awakened and seeking soul. You will have the perfect shades for meditating to connect with yourself, the world around you and be ushered into a  ‘STATE OF NIRVANA.’

You can either relax next to the pool on our daybeds, while listening to nature all around you and the soft tones of exotic music, or take a walk in the gardens around the country house after a visit to the Chimps or you can meet Eugene Cussons at his Paramotor training school and explore this thrilling new hobby! Note the wildlife is also often spotted on the grounds to the delight of guests. Don’t be alarmed!

OWNER:  Nirvana Country House owner, Jeannine Ferreira, through her vast travels, enjoyed memorable months in Turkey. Her love for the culture and Turkish cuisine culminated in our establishment’s exotic design and is the reason we now offer a full Authentic Turkish menu in our Restaurant created by Chef Adele Maartens.

WHY CHOOSE NIRVANA: It is the ideal venue for a “bosberaad”, as the Lowvelders call their business “workshops” or a Sunday excursion with the family!  A romantic dinner for two in the wine cellar or with favourite friends around the King’s table with its private open fires, are a must experience.

CHEF: Adele is a self-taught chef who is passionate about everything to do with food. She has however attended numerous cooking courses in North Africa, Europe and the East, and others countries covering garagiste wine and cheese making.  Her book “My Vegetarian Braai” took the title of winner for South Africa in the category “Barbecue” in the SA Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2019!

FOOD MADE WITH LOVE: After eight years in the Food Trucking Industry, many events and food festivals later, she has grown in her food adventures, become a food stylist, food photographer and now author of her first cookbook with more to follow. Her fresh ideas come so naturally, made with love. One cannot wait for the next plate to arrive! 

Nirvana is truly a soul fulfilling experience!
