Only 40minutes to an hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, Little Swift is situated in the Skeerpoort Valley.
Overlooked by the majestic Magaliesberg Mountain Range, the valley offers, natural beauty, tranquility and lots of activities in and around the area.
Little Swift Chalets are situated on 50 hectares of game and farming land with 2.4kms of Magalies River frontage. The farm is stocked with both wildlife and farming livestock. Wild animals include but are not limited to, zebra, wildebeest, impala, nyala, the elusive cape otter, vervet monkeys, civets, jackals, reedbuck and leguaans.
The bird life is prolific, with an abundance of water birds, bushveld birds, raptors, grassland birds and our very own emus.
Each chalet is between 30m-50m apart, overlooking the Magalies river and offers complete privacy, making this an ideal venue for a weekend getaway with your loved one.
Overlooking our dam in the centre of the horseshoe is the communal lapa and pool. Enjoy the whirlpool, clear blue swimming pool and the grassy area ideal for a braai and fire.
This picturesque setting is not meant for the excitement-seeker, although there is plenty to see and do in the area. Enjoy quiet time on the farm or indulge in some excitement nearby.
Our rates are structured with you in mind and are charged per chalet rather than per person. Take advantage of our specials, packages and midweek and weekend rates.
Each of the 8 chalets is fully self-catering. The open plan design accommodates two adults in a queen size bed, has a corner bath which overlooks the river yet is totally private from any angle, an inside fireplace, lounge and kitchenette and an outside private patio braai.
The chalets are equipped with a fridge, double hot plate stove, microwave, kettle, toaster, linen including towels, cutlery and crockery.
A communal dam, swimming pool and heated whirlpool at the lapa with braai facilities are also available on the rolling lawns.

“We were very unfortunate to arrive at an accommodation which was NOT AT ALL what it was advertised to be and we felt that we were not comfortable or safe staying the evening, having previously visited Little Swift, we decided to give them a call, they had already left for the day but when we phoned and explained our situation, they were most accommodating and quick to assist us without prior arrangement, the chalet was neat and clean and well equipped, taking into consideration that they had not planned for our arrival,the chalet was impeccable. Thank you for saving us from our "wrong turn" experience, we will definitely recommend Little Swift to all our friends and family!!!"
