We like to pamper our guests to feel @ home.

Enjoy the Pool with a nice Cool Drink after an activity, order a snack platter and a wine for sunset and sit around the Campfire in the evening.

Outdoor activities

Many of our Guests return year after year to enjoy their most favourite activity in a perfect climate. From September to November we enter spring with nature coming alive and  showing its beautiful colours. This weather extends into February which is our summer period. During this period we can enjoy wind that blows moderately on most days, this gives the land a pleasant cooling. And then we have March to May, which is also considered as a perfect time. Cooler mornings and nights and often 20+ degrees during the day.

Nature and Wildlife

Enjoy the beauty of Nature and Wildlife that the Western Cape has to offer. There is so much to do that you can easily stay for one or two weeks at our Guesthouse to explore all nature and wildlife highlights in our area. As soon as you book with us we can assist you in setting up a timeline for activities. Share with us your interest and budget, we will come up with a proposal. To inspire you we made a shortlist on this page to give you an idea where you can choose from. You can contact us direct through WhatsApp or E-mail to ask questions and we start organizing your trip while you book your flight tickets.
