Welcome to RAMELA Ranch

Only one and a half hours drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria lays a serene Nature Estate, 6km from Loskopdam, 44km from Middelburg, Mpumalanga. We like to call it perfection, and so would you!!
A classical venue for all occasions and luxurious lodges for all seasons. Ramela Ranch – nestling close to the Olifant's river with the Selons River as part of the one border, is a great getaway.
Ramela Ranch offers two supurb venues: DIKWENA, an ideal conference venue and the perfect setting for a wedding or corporate event, and Mbidi Resort and Animal Sanctuary. We are committed to the conservation of the fauna and natural environment.
