Shanyane Guesthouse

Conveniently located right of the R510 on the edge of town, Shanyane Guesthouse offers you a unique advantage of being close to town for all your business needs while enveloping you in a tranquil, rustic country charm. Our newly renovated property offers guests 7 exquisitely decorated rooms, ensuite bathrooms and a private entrance for each room. After enjoying a meal in our enchanting dining room, guests can unwind by taking a stroll through our lush gardens or taking a dip in the swimming pool.

With a burning desire to have our own business, my husband and I opened our tea garden: Café a la Fy in 1999. This gave us the opportunity to involve the whole family in creating a sanctuary for our guests, where home cooked meals and a wide variety of refreshments could be enjoyed in the oasis we’ve created in the heart of the Bushveld. For many years we worked diligently and strived for excellence giving our guest food that is passionately prepared. After branching out into catering and enjoying great success with it in the local market, we felt it was time for the next step in our business. Shanyane Guest House and Tea Garden was born.
A brand new fresh building on the old sturdy foundations left us with Shanyane Guesthouse, a building we’re extremely proud of.
The name was inspired by a compilation of our family names. S.J., Johan, Fya & Janine. – Shanyane. To us it symbolizes growth, dreams and the pursuit of goals.


Each of the 7 Guest suites are named after indigenous trees that can be found in our garden, a way of honouring the connection we have with nature and the land that has been good to our family.

All rooms are equipped with:

  • Queen size bed
  • Ensuite bathroom
  • Air conditioning
  • Television with DSTV
  • Coffee & Tea
  • Wi-Fi


In addition to breakfast, which is served as part of the guest package, guests are invited to have dinner in the restaurant on premises where we serve high quality wholesome home cooked meals. Lunch boxes for contractors working at the mine or power plants can also be purchased.


We are privileged to have an exquisite location. Drive straight on OR Tambo Drive, the road on which you enter town, keep straight for 2km and find us at the very top of the very first small hill you’ll ascend.
We are 95km from the Groblersbrug border post to Botswana.
Apart from taking advantage of the swimming pool, braai area and gardens, guests can enjoy their down time on the 18 hole golf course, visit one of the many private game reserves in the area, or simply enjoy shopping at Lephalale square.
We graciously invite you to visit us. Shanyane Guesthouse - It feels like home
