History around us: 

 We look on to the Magaliesberg mountains to the North.

 They  are older than Mount Everest in the Himalayas.

 To the South are the Witwatersberg mountains which

 shield us from the Highveld.

Much has happened in this valley starting with the 

Cradle of Humankind

The most significant event in recent history was the

 Battle of Nooitgedacht which was fought on the adjoining farm. 

The famous Boer General Koos de la Rey vanquished the British General Ralph Clements on the 13th of 

December 1900. To mark this historic event the farm

 is named after him. He and most of his men were lucky to escape back to Pretoria. 

Today we get more famous guests staying with us. Maybe

 you'd like to be one of them?
