Absolute Leisure Cottages consists of two neighbouring properties in the village of Machadodorp. Machado House is a grand Victorian home named after Paul Kruger's raiway surveyor, General Joachim Machado.
This AA Recommended self catering / B&B accommodation is found in the quaint, unspoilt village of Machadodorp, situated just off the N4 Maputo Corridor, an easy two and a half hour drive from Gauteng. Thus Machadodorp is an easy-to-get-to, affordable weekend getaway for Gauteng families, friends and couples seeking quality time. Absolute Leisure Cottages is also an ideal halfway stop between the Cape and Kruger, and between OR Tambo Airport, Johannesburg and the Kruger Park, Swaziland and Mozambique.
Situated in the midst of the Mpumalanga Highlands Meander, the breath-taking mountains, rivers, gorges and grasslands present many opportunities for relaxation; fly fishing, hiking, horse rides, birding, mountain biking, rock climbing, abseiling, motor bike tours, local culture, scenic drives, historical exploration and more. The area is the perfect destination for both nature lovers and the adventurous at heart.
