Things to do in Letamo

As there are no dangerous predators on the farm, residents can wander around freely. The farm has two hippos – but they only roam at night. And although no resident has ever been harmed by one, the farm doesn’t allow people to walk around on the farm after sunset or before sunrise.

About the Cradle 

The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site (COHWHS) stretches from Lanseria to Oaktree, Hekpoort, and Broederstroom, and also extends from Gauteng into the North West Province.  

This area was declared a heritage site in 1999, in recognition of the discovery of extraordinary fossils of our early human ancestors.  

The vast Cradle area offers over 400 experiences that range from accommodation to adrenaline-pumping action, venues for meetings, conferences, and weddings, arts and crafts experiences, restaurants and pubs, and wildlife and township experiences.

Our History

Letamo Game Farm was established in 1998, and its residential development started in July 2001. The developers’ vision at that time was that anyone with a passion for South Africa’s bushveld, wildlife, and nature should be able to live on a game farm. More specifically, the farm’s closeness to Johannesburg allowed the developers to position the farm’s offering as “work in town / the city, but live on a game farm”.  

The incredible boom in developments over the last 15+ years means that the farm is now a mere nine minutes from Cradlestone Mall; it is close to a number of schools; it is 10 minutes from Silverstar Casino, and only eight minutes from Netcare Pinehaven Hospital.  

In a recent update on the continued expansion of the planned Gautrain routes, a line has been proposed from Lanseria, through the Cradle, Cosmo, and Randburg, and ending in Sandton. However, the farm’s location in the Cradle means that not much more development may take place immediately around the farm, and so it is likely that in the future the farm will be a tranquil haven in the midst of other urban developments.
