AKABEKO Boutique Hotel is a private property which is located in the heart of the First Generation Tait Family owned Cattle Ranch.
The 2000 ha Cattle Ranch is home to more than 500 Bonsmara Cattle, the same number of Marino sheep and 15 different Game Species. The Arabian horse stud “Abu Monia “ is named after Monia Tait who is the General Manager of AKABEKO. George Tait, owner and Entrepreneur of several local and international business entities has dreamt for years of building a Boutique Hotel of his own. The Family Ranch is located at 1900m above sea level in one of the most beautiful areas in Mpumalanga with it’s waved grass mountains that remind you of the Scottish highlands.
The dream became a reality in early 2016 when the Akabeko project was completed after 3 years of construction. AKABEKO is built in a valley with fantastic natural views on the river and mountain cliffs and a dense forest. This was the favourite spot on the Ranch when family and friends came together to picnic, relax and appreciate nature.
The name AKABEKO was chosen for it’s simple meaning that relate to the hundreds of “Red Cows” that roams around the farm.
