About us

Baobab’s accommodation started with a dream of a young couple. Getting married and moving from the hassle of city life and becoming a farmer’s wife, I dreamed of doing my own thing and earning additional income for myself and the farm. And maybe the most important was to have contact with other people, as Marnitz is situated in one of South Africa’s most remote areas.

We started with only one 4 bed self-catering cottages in 2002 and through the years more cottages were added. We mainly catered for families and 4x4 groups. We realized that a different style of accommodation was needed in the Koedoesrand Bushveld. In 2015 we purchased a small piece of land next to the N11 and transformed the 100 year old farm house into 11 en-suite rooms. We love meeting new people and interacting with them. We are especially well known for our hospitality and good service. Koedoesrand is situated in the farm Limpopo Province in a small place called Marnitz. Typical to Koedoesrand now shops can be found and our nearest town, Lephalale is aprox 120km’s from us. We have a small farm stall (Baobab Padstal) that stocks only the bare necessities, biltong and dry wors. We are within 32-40km’s from the Groblersbrug / Martin’s Drift border post – gateway to Botswana, Zimbabwe or the rest of Africa. Baobab’s Bushveld Rest is only 4km’s and Baobab’s Farm Cottage 11,5km from the Awarded and very popular Bordeaux Wedding venue. "Arrive as a guest but leave as a friend" may be a well-known slogan, but at Baobab you will experience this for yourself. We look forward to meeting you.
