Highlights like the awe inspiring D'Nyala Nature Reserve, Marakele National Park and the spectacular Mokolo Dam & Nature Reserve, underscores why Lephalale is called "the heartbeat of the Waterberg bushveld". As part of the Waterberg biosphere, the Lephalale area is richly blessed with pristine natural beauty and an abundance of fauna and flora.

Abuelita Hostel
Experience friendly, warm country hospitality at our newly opened hostel. Abuelita Hostel is an old farmhouse that has recently been renovated into four basic dormitory-style rooms than can accommodate groups of 3 up to 12 labourers or contractors. Small groups can enjoy this intimate setting and really make it a home away from home. We offer affordable budget accommodation and strive to meet all your company's needs.

Abuelita Hostel is conveniently situated about 3 km outside Lephalale (Ellisras), Limpopo Province, with easy access to Medupi and other construction sites in and around town. Come and enjoy the magnificent Waterberg District and facilities that Ellisras has to offer.

Abuelita Hostel is a privately owned company and is run by the Versfeld-Family. We have recently decided to renovate the farm house into a hostel where guests can enjoy our warm hospitality. We named it Abuelita to honour my late grandmother. She was born in Argentina and immigrated to South Africa with her parents as a young woman. Spanish was her home language and you could always hear her talk away to herself in Spanish when she thought no one was listening. That is where we found the inspiration for our name. The word “Abuelita” translates into “grandmother”.

Abuelita is an owner-run Hostel set in the tranquil bushveld. This beautiful establishment with its four dormitory-style rooms offers visitors a friendly, peaceful and comfortable home from home, where you will instantly feel welcome and at ease. We pride ourselves on our service will strive to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
Ashante, meaning "grateful", is the most perfect bushveld getaway spot for a relaxing vacation. It lies nestled in the folds of the Waterberg Mountains on the banks of the Rietspruit.
