NATURE

Created over thousands of years, the river slowly carved away a deep gorge which, finaly collapsing in on itself, bacame the beautiful hidden valley that we call Sima Kade. A unique feature of the Witwatersrand berg the valley boasts untouched indigenous plant and animal life, forests, bush-veld, cliffs, rock-pools, a river and a picturesque view of the Magaliesburg.

DESIGN

Built over the past decade, the Sima Kade venues are the result of a careful, but deliberate, intersection of architecture, nature and human experience. The repeated use of stone from the valley floor, or locally sourced timber, contrasted with modern materials like glass and steel, combine to provide stylish, comfortable living spaces that blend in perfectly to the surroundings.

EXPERIENCE

Enjoyed as an escape, a retreat, a home, a refuge or a return to nature, Sima Kade offers a unique experience for groups small and large. We aim to provide the adventure of being immersed in the bush, experiencing the outdoors, wildlife and different seasons while having all the nessecities, privacy, seclusion and comforts you need at your disposal.

Welcome to Sima Kade

 

Sima Kade (Tree of Life) is nestled in a private valley in Magaliesburg. Built using stone and wood from the valley the three separate, self-catering venues mimic the surrounding environment, flowing from forest to river-side to grass along stone pathways. Designed as sustainable off-grid retreats for total immersion in the natural environment, Sima Kade is truly at one with its surroundings. The venues are ideal for groups, ceremonies, outdoor enthusiasts, retreats and totally private, secluded stays. We have small medium and large venues with the capacity for romantic weekends away for two, intimate gatherings of friends or workshops with large groups of guests and facilitators.

This valley hosts a cornucopia of indigenous plant and animal life, thriving on a river of natural spring-water that flows from water-falls and rock pools, down into forests and small gorges. Walking paths allow for day excursions around the valley along the tall cliffs and into our beautiful forested amphitheatre. The night sky provides a clear view of the stars. The valley has a cosy ambience, surrounding the tranquil venues with plush green slopes in summer and warm golden grasses in winter - looking out over the Magalies valley rolls up against its famous southern cliffs for picturesque sunsets.
