Hennie & Belinda bought Hakuna Matata in 1998 as a weekend retreat where they could catch their breath after the week’s hard work at a mine in Carltonville. Hennie just loves mother nature and in particular water and fishing. Upon Hennie & Belinda’s retirement, they decided to share their portion of paradise with the public.
Two self-catering chalets, Pumba & Simba was constructed to host a total of 12 visitors at a time. They wanted to keep the quiet and relaxed feeling one experience when you visit Hakuna Matata.
Hakuna Matata is the place for you if you need some fresh country air. Picturesque sunsets with the 160m wide river as a backdrop will take your breath away.
Starry starry nights where you can hear a jackal or owl from a distance while you lay on a blanket and look at what the milky way has to offer.
Hakuna Matata – No Worries
Belinda opened a small shop with the basic necessities such as Cold drinks, Chocolates, Ice Cream, Coffee, Tea, Sugar, Milk, Mielie Meal, Tomato Sauce, Salt & Pepper, Candles, Fire Wood & Matches to name but a few products. Hennie on the other hand sells some fishing bait and accessories to the fishermen visitors that might not be geared for the river at Hakuna Matata.
Hakuna Matata offers a play-park and swimming pool for supervised children and non-aggressive Dogs no bigger than a Foxterier are allowed to join their family for the weekend if they are looked after.
There is a Canoe that one can hire for R50 per day and you are welcome to bring your own Canoe.
