We have a swimming pool for those hot summer days; you are welcome to utilise this and enjoy our beautiful garden. The setting of the farm is relaxing with lovely views available; perhaps you would enjoy sitting on the patio and enjoying the scenery.

Laundry is done on request and at an extra charge.

Breakfast is served and special Karoo lamb dinners are also available on request.


Over 140 species of birds are listed on the farm. This includes specials like the Burchells’ Courser, Layards’ Titbabler, Blue Korhaan, Rock Pipit and many other Karoo specials. A new species, the Kimberley Pipit, are a resident on the farm and in the winter times, the Longtailed Pipit is a special visitor.
