Call it fate, call it fortune, we call it GROUND… Where It Begins. Based out in Muldersdrift, bordering the Cradle of Humankind, sits our charming and unique venue. Surrounded by world heritage, an evolution began at GROUND, as it did humankind; naturally, miraculously, and beautifully. The foundation of GROUND was built around it’s natural beauty and vegetation, and enhanced by locally imported vines from Cape Town, lawn from Magalies, and trees from all over the country. The fruition of GROUND is forever immanent as the inherent surroundings continually grow and inspire us with new ideas. GROUND is an artist’s canvas, where ideas and special occasions come to life. It may be somewhere you might indulge in a jazz, wine, food or music festival, a gorgeous wedding venue, lunch between the vines or even just a humble picnic in the forest – our venue lends itself to an incredible range of experiences.


Less than an hour’s drive from the hustle and bustle of the big city is an idyllic piece of paradise we call Ground. The Cronjé family farm – a stone’s throw from the Cradle of Humankind – has been transformed into a stunning venue that is ideal for weddings, music festivals, sports events, picnics, year-end functions, birthdays…in fact, any event you can think of. Come visit our space and enjoy a hike followed by a picnic – we have lots of space for you to relax and enjoy.
