About the venue


Situated about 25 kilometers from Dullstroom, Mpumalanga, The Hothouse is a greenhouse-inspired country venue suitable for intimate gatherings and small weddings. It is situated on the guest farm African Leaves, best known for its Bordeaux-style accommodation and secluded countryside atmosphere.


In order to maintain the surrounding environment and keep it as exclusive as possible, there will only be five to eight weekends made available annually for weddings to be held at The Hothouse. Therefore availability is extremely limited and should the venue be booked well in advance. We also have a few codes of conduct set in place as to the look and feel of the weddings held at the venue and would like all of our wedding parties to promote the environment, the sustainability thereof and the idea of a green house as much as possible.


African Leaves and The Hothouse can only be booked on a strict self-catering basis. We do however provide you with a local wedding co-ordinator whom will provide you with our list of pre-approved caterers in the area from which you will have to choose from.


With its rustic stone walls and modern starlight roof, The Hothouse was built in the view of the clean air, beautiful surroundings and indigenous flora and fauna. We therefore encourage all of our guests to keep the events simplistic and environmental-friendly as the outside landscape speaks for itself. Should you feel that The Hothouse will be perfect for your big day, do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or to check for availablity.
