Situated atop a spur with almost 360 degree views, 15 km south of Tzaneen, the Coach House and Agatha Spa overlooks the truly spectacular peaks of the northern Drakensberg.
Eight Hectares of garden immediately surround the hotel. An eclectic collection of indigenous and exotic plants and trees have been assembled to provide one of the most interesting and well laid out hotel gardens in the country.
Below the hotel an indigenous aloe garden flows into orchards of macadamia trees. Linking onto one of the farm walks, a selection from one of South Africas best known clivia collection, The McNeil Collection, has been planted. This wild garden enchants a small stream canopied by grand indigenous trees.
Agatha enjoys a delightful climate all year round, and because of its location, the mercury never drops below 10a C even on a mild winters night. Summer temperatures in the day seldom exceed 30a C. Being in a summer rainfall area, from April to October is cool and very dry.
Agatha was originally established in 1888 as its altitude of 1100m ensures a malaria free environment.
Tzaneen Airstrip suitable for light fixed wing aircraft is 25 km away and helicopters may use the pad at S 23a5644 and E30a0871, which is 500 m from the Hotel.
