Segaia offers African sunsets and stunning views of a dam on your doorstep – a watering-place where Zebra, Kudu, Impala, warthog and the odd leopard come to drink. Birdlife is prolific, as are large numbers of frogs, both of which treat visitors to their songs. One of the jewels of northern Gauteng, Segaia Bush Retreat offers an escape to the magic of the bush that reminds of areas far more remote. It is the perfect getaway for weary, ‘traffic-jammed’ city dwellers who do not want to spend hours on the road to get to a weekend destination, but require an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity combined with fresh air.

Mac Mac Pools lies south of the Mac Mac Falls, it’s well grassed and has a shady picnic site with neat braai and ablution facilities. The brave can test their resilience in the freezing water in one of these naturally formed shallow swimming pools but have to be cautious when going for a swim. If you fancy a gentle walk, then amble along the 3km Secretary Bird Day Trail at the pools which wanders through indigenous bush. You’ll hear robins, thrushes, turacos, greenbuls, and cuckoos in summer, and if you’re lucky, you may well spot the curious looking Secretary bird which stamps snakes and small rodents to death before gobbling them down. An entrance fee is payable at the guard-house, and please ensure to receive a ticket.
