Idlewild Country Estate



At Idlewild, we provide the perfect setting for your wedding, corporate or private event. We can host events in a variety of settings, from our fire-place dining area in our banquet hall, to our lawn and terrace with breath taking views and sunsets.

Idlewild Country Estate is a magnificent new venue with a majestic building overlooking the Rietvleidam Nature Reserve and has rolling lawns where Blesbuck roams freely. It has an aura of tranquility, peace and warmth with picturesque sunsets.

In a short space of time, Idlewild has managed to solidify itself as the venue of choice for weddings and business events alike, all thanks to its unique aura which brings about immediate feelings of tranquility, peace and warmth. The picturesque sunsets are a bonus. Idlewild Country Estate was erected on a farm which has been in the family since 1978. We cater for weddings, conferences, sporting events, launches, year-end functions, matric dances and seminars.

We are able to cater for up to 500 guests cocktail-style and 450 guests with a dance floor.

We are proud to announce that we are a Green venue, as most of the materials used for the building were recycled from the farm. The natural sandstone was imported from the famous village of Fouriesburg! Authentic timbers are incorporated in the interior design and specialised insulation techniques are used throughout, reducing reliance on air conditioners. The gardens consist of various indigenous grasses and trees.

Idlewild Country Estate is centrally located between Joahnnesburg, Pretoria and the East Rand.
