BBT Lodge is located in an Equestrian Estate


Our accommodation is conveniently situated midway between Johannesburg and Tswane Pretoria on the country estate of Randjesfontein. Very accessible to the main highways that link the major centres and to O R Tambo International. We are situated just minutes away from the Midrand GAUTRAIN Station, Gallagher Estate, Corporate Park N & S, Randjespark and the Midrand CBD.


Enter Randjesfontein at the boomed entrance and make your way along the quiet roads inside this secure, walled rural domain to our own three acre property. Once you enter our grounds you will find ample parking and have the first opportunity, but definitely not the last, to meet the hosts of your accommodation.

Randjesfontein Countryside

The bold archaic Sardinian styled cluster of buildings make this Lodge stand out like a shining white Mediterranean accommodation jewel in the necklace of rolling countryside of Midrand, between Johannesburg and Tswane Pretoria. A Guest Lodge in the country that is both so convenient for where you need to be and yet offers an escape to truly unwind, when the working day is done. Relax in our ​​cosy pub​​​. Take your favourite sundowner upstairs onto one of our ​​​outside decks and enjoy the views. Chill out in or beside the ​​​​​​pool​. Take a stroll in our park like gardens. You might be fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of our resident pair of Spotted Eagle Owls.​​​
