The Falls Guest House is situated on the beautiful farm Fraaigelegen in the Northern Cape. Hospitality has been enjoyed for years by guests in this area.
Since as early as the 1920’s guests have experienced great hospitality at Fraaigelegen. In those days the farm was owned by Piet and Matty Nel, who were the grandparents of guesthouse owners Piet and Adele du Plessis. The land where the Augrabies Falls are found was originally owned by Piet Nel and he later sold this land to the National Parks of South Africa.
In the early 1920’s Matty had a café where she served the tourists and guests that were on the route to the Augrabies Waterfalls. In those days the supplies for the little shop were carried by a horse named Appel (apple) from Kakamas’s station 30km away.
The house named “Hokaai” where Piet and Matty lived still exists today. This was the building that Adele used to start her guesthouse in 2001 before she built the current guesthouse in November 2005. Today this family’s generosity, kindness and hospitality is carried on by The Falls guesthouse and their hostess Adele du Plessis.
