PERSONAL REVIEW BY LEILANI - FOUNDER OF DATE NIGHT SA
Tomjachu Bush Retreat near Nelspruit has received our seal of approval as a top-notch Mpumalanga date night destination. On a recent visit to this gem of a nature reserve, we could immediately tell why it has only grown in popularity over the years.
First of all, the view is absolutely incredible. If you and your partner enjoy a scenic outing, this is the spot for you. Tomjachu offers everything from picnics to bush dinners and nature drives that all make for excellent date outings, proposal options and more. We also enjoyed truly wonderful service throughout our stay - we encountered one of the three brothers who run the lodge and his passion for their business is tangible, which also explains why their staff members are so happy and good at their jobs, spilling over into a lovely visitor experience from start to finish. As for the accommodation - it's 100% tailormade for quality time with your partner. From the double shower heads in the honeymoon suite to the self-catering cottage with a private pool for double-date getaways, romance is top of mind at Tomjachu.
