We loved our stay here! Our hosts were just fantastic and we so enjoyed everything from the delicious wine and olives to their gorgeous dogs. The cottage was comfortable and the surroundings so peaceful and beautiful. We highly recommend this place.

We feel so lucky to have found Alpha Excelsior via SA-Venues! It is a brilliant place -- perfect location, beautifully cared for and thought through accommodation options, gorgeous dam with delicious mineral-packed mud, delicious wine, olives and olive oil, starlit skies to leave you awestruck, views and geological rock life to blow your mind and a blessed waterfall. Peaceful, unpretentious and beautiful place. We look forward to returning soon!

Loved our few days on the farm. So peaceful and quiet - just what we needed to unwind and just relax! The waterfall was the highlight for us - such a beautiful spot. Very special!

Wonderful hospitality at a beautiful farm in the spectacular scenery of the Cederbergen conservation. Beckie and James are amazing people full of passion and commitment to make you feel home. Taste their wine, they make some exquisite Shiraz and pinotage! Also very interesting: the San rockpaintings at a 10’ drive. A must see! I recommend the experience at alpha excelsior 100%!!! Oh, and for the back patients: the beds are top! Thank you Beckie and James!
