House 29 is a fully self-catering accommodation located in the Doornkop Fish and Wildlife Reserve. The property offers a secure and relaxing environment, surrounded by the natural beauty of dams, rivers, and mountains within the reserve. It provides accommodation in four bedrooms with beds for eight people, but can accommodate up to 12 people if additional mattresses are brought in.

The house is comfortably furnished, with the lounge featuring a stone fireplace that warms the open-plan flow of the second level during winter. The kitchen, situated on the same level, is fully equipped with a fridge, oven, and all necessary cooking utensils. This area opens onto a thatched balcony with patio furniture and a gas braai, allowing for enjoyment of evening meals or breakfast while taking in the views. The patio below the balcony serves as a cool place to relax during summer. Adjacent to the house, there is a braai area in the lapa, which includes a table but requires guests to bring their own outdoor chairs. The house overlooks five interlocking dams located only 70 meters away.

At the clubhouse, guests can access a games room and swimming pools with wooden loungers, providing opportunities to relax while enjoying a drink or taking in the views under the cool thatch. Near the clubhouse, stables and tennis courts are available. The reserve is situated in the mountains between Carolina and Machadodorp and offers hiking trails, horse riding, wildlife trails, 4x4 trails, and historical ruins. Guided quad trails can be booked at the reception. Guests are welcome to bring along their mountain bikes, binoculars, cameras, and fly fishing rods.

The property features 10 dams and two rivers stocked with trout, bass, yellow fish, and kurpers. A wide range of birds and interesting wildlife, including brown hyenas, side striped jackals, 'aardwolf,' and porcupines, can be observed. Larger wildlife such as zebras, warthogs, and ostriches are often seen wandering between the widely spaced houses, further enhancing the beautiful and relaxing atmosphere. Please note that due to the upgrade of the Lapa area, there may be some building materials present at the house. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
