Writer's Safari
14 - 17 June 2024

Join us for a safari with a difference! Acclaimed writer and poet John Eppel will be your host and mentor on this voyage of discovery, a journey like no other that will craft memories that will last a lifetime and teach you how to express them.


Set in the heart of the Matobo Hills is The Farmhouse, a rustic homestead with self contained Cape Dutch style cottages. This beautiful venue provides the ideal setting for our pioneering safari experience. 

The breathtaking scenery will be your muse and John will guide you through the 'rules' of the English language to help you learn to express yourself and immortalise your experience. 

Experienced writers and novices alike will benefit from the tutelage of our resident wordsmith, join us for three nights in this stunning setting and leave with more than memories!
