Visit De Rust for peace and tranquility - Our resort is well run and supervised by the owner and staff  that provide a friendly, clean and well maintained environment. Experience the African Finfoot swimming past you on the river or to add 6 of the seven kingfisher species, including the half collard kingfisher to your personal birding list. A 600yr old Wild Olive and a 450 yr old Karee line the start to the nature trail. Early morning self drives will reward you with  a variety of Fauna and Flora including the Big 5.
On the banks of the Pienaarsriver, and within a BIG 5 Game Reserve, De Rust is a peaceful, spacious caravan park, shaded by beautiful indigenous trees. Just 35km from Pretoria, this is the perfect place to come to for a peaceful appreciation of untouched bushveld. Part of the Finfoot Conservancy and home to The Big 5, De Rust also boasts impressive birdlife. To date 280 bird species have been identified, including the rare African Finfoot, the half-collared Kingfisher and the whitebacked night Heron. 


With only 30 stands, this park is exclusively small and yet reasonably priced. It is run by the owner, who personally ensures good service. Each big stand has its own braai, water and 16 amp power supply, and the security here is excellent, with patrolled game fences and a  Security entrance gate. Day visitors are not allowed in the park, to ensure it retains its peaceful atmosphere. Small dogs are allowed by prior arrangement.

Our facilities are what set us apart, and we know they'll make your stay with us even more enjoyable.
