Relax and enjoy true hospitality at our refuge in Limpopo.

On the southern banks of the Letaba River, only 68 km east of Tzaneen in the Limpopo province, lies ATKV Eiland Spa in the heart of the Hans Merensky Nature Reserve.

Eiland Spa, with its year-round warm, sunny weather and diverse natural beauty, is one of the most popular resorts in South Africa. With its variety of self-catering accommodation, recreational facilities and activities, restaurant and healing hydro spa, ATKV Eiland Spa is the ideal place for the entire family to come and relax.

The serene tranquility and peaceful silence of the Bushveld surroundings create the ideal atmosphere for positive and imaginative business planning and team building.


ATKV Eiland Spa caters for everyone’s taste in accommodation – all against a classic Bushveld background in Limpopo. Our units are all self-catering. They are therefore not serviced, although the linen and towels are changed every fourth day. Every unit is fully equipped with air conditioning, a braai area and DStv.

Youth hostel

Our youth hostel can accommodate 88 people and is perfect for any school or church group. The hostel comprises two wings, with bathrooms, and rooms for teachers or supervisors. It also has a well-equipped kitchen and a dining or meeting area, with braai and washing-up facilities outside. All the facilities at the resort are at the disposal of the residents of the youth hostel.


Our rondavels are three-star, air-conditioned units that can house two to six people.

Day Visitors

Day visitors

Although ATKV members are given preference when they book at our resorts, the ATKV has long had the policy of making accommodation at the resorts available to everyone. However, only ATKV members may visit the resorts as day visitors. With the arrival of South Africa’s new dispensation, the ATKV, on the basis of decisions taken at various conferences, aligned itself unequivocally with this new dispensation. The ATKV sees itself as an active role player in the building of new structures for the future, in this way striving to become an indispensable part of an inclusive South Africa.

Holidaying is one of the activities most closely connected with the recreational component of culture. This is precisely why the ATKV endeavours to make the holiday experience of the Afrikaans cultural community a pleasurable one.

The ATKV resorts focus on aspects such as family entertainment, safety, a peaceful holiday environment and holiday-goers who respect and complement one another’s needs.
To ensure a pleasant holiday experience, our resorts have certain rules, which include the following:

  • A limited number of day visitors
  • No alcohol at the swimming pools
  • No drunkenness
  • Acknowledgement of the dignity of everyone who visits the resort as a paying guest
  • No buses with visitors without prior arrangements

These rules apply to ensure an environment in which all visitors can relax and enjoy themselves. In this way, every visitor is afforded the opportunity to experience the surroundings and the entertainment on offer. Individuals or groups who break the rules are warned once or twice, after which drastic action is taken; this may include eviction from a resort. Any person who does not respect the dignity of other visitors and objects to their presence is refunded and asked to leave the resort.

Day visitor policy

  • ATKV members are given preference to non-members when they visit the resorts as day visitors. 
  • ATKV members and non-members pay a day visitor tariff.
  • Day visitors are not limited to ATKV members, but pre-bookings are essential. The booking has to be made 24 hours before visiting the resort of choice – weekdays during office hours 08:00 – 17:00. To gain entry to the resort, proof of payment has to be sent before arrival.
  • ATKV members and non-members who are residential guests at a resort may be visited by family members and friends as day visitors, but only if prior arrangements have been made with reception. 
  • The number of day visitors at resorts must be strictly controlled, because each resort can only allow a limited number of visitors.
  • Due to space and limited facilities, no ordinary day visitors are allowed at Eiland Spa during long weekends and for the period between December 15 and January 10.
  • At ATKV Eiland Spa and ATKV Natalia no additional visitors will be allowed during December due to limited space on the resort.  
  • This day visitor policy does not apply to visitors at the Negester Estate at Klein-Kariba. A separate policy for Negester Estate has been formulated in cooperation with the homeowners association.  

Day visitor tariff

  • ATKV members: R90 per person 
  • Non-members: R150 per person 

Day visitors are welcome to visit our resorts daily from 08:00 to 17:00. Measures have been increased to ensure that day visitors adhere to these times, unless other arrangements are made with the management of the specific resort.
