In 1811 William John Burchell set off on a 4-year, 7000-km journey of scientific exploration, starting from Cape Town. When he returned to Cape Town in April 1815, he had amassed 63 000 plant & animal specimens and 500 drawings. His epic journey has inspired the new family cottage at Three Tree Hill.
Burchells, a two-bedroomed family cottage, has been designed to capture the spectacular view of Spioenkop Game Reserve & Mountain, embracing nature & transporting guests through time with a naturalist-explorer theme. The art on the walls include canvas replicas of his intricate drawings, hand-embroidered flower pressings, framed butterfly art & a printed glass map detailing his epic journey.
Custom-made furniture has been locally crafted with reclaimed cypress & cedar wood. Brass light fittings were salvaged from a shipwreck & South African crafted fabrics were used for the soft furnishings.
This cottage has two en-suite bedrooms, sleeping either 2 couples or two adults with (up to) four children. Games, story books, toys & paraben-free children’s toiletries make this a paradise for families. Remember, from 01 January 2019, they classify children as children until the age of 18 years.
