About De Pakhuys

Nestled in the picturesque Agter-Pakhuis Valley, 26 km from Clanwilliam on route to the historic Wuperthal village, you will find De Pakhuys Guest Farm.

The farm and cottages belongs to the Kruger Family from Cape Town, who on a visit to the area in 2003 couldn't resist having a piece of this paradise to themselves. They subsequently bought a piece of land in this magnificent valley and decided to renovate one of the cottages on the farm and share the splendour of the Cederberg with visitors.

The cottages and guests are looked after and cared for by our partners and friends, Mark & Marinda Botha, who farms on the land bordering us. Mark and Marinda both grew up in this beautiful valley and can share some interesting facts about the history of the Agter Pakhuis area with our guests.


De Pakhuys offers a choice of four self-catering cottages. Choose between Olienhuys Chalet that sleeps 6 people, romantic Waboomhuys, sleeping two (plus one child), Blokhuys which sleeps five and Riethuys which also sleeps five.

Attractions & Activities

The farm offers a beautiful scenic drive to the top section of the farm accessible only with a 4x4 vehicle. The top section of the farm consists of 60 ha of rooibos tea lands and 260 ha of unspoilt fynbos gorges and wild flowers during season. Hundred years old Wild Olive trees, or commonly know as olienhout trees, can be found wedged between the rocks. An old hollow rock cave can be used for a picnic or for those that really wants to "rough it", as an overnight camping spot.

Quad Bikes now available to guests

Nature Walks

Guests are welcome to stroll around the farm but two "formal" hiking trails may be followed:

Die Plaat Hiking Trail:
This route takes you down the 4x4 track and up to Die Plaat area of the farm. The walk takes approximately two hours but can be varied for those who feel like a shorter walk. During the flower season the walk takes you through endless veldflower fields. The walk offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountain range and the valley below.

The Waterfall Trail:
This trail takes you for an easy walk along the banks of the Brandewyn (Brandy!) River down to where the river plummets 500m into the Karoo basin, resulting in lovely waterfalls, rapids and astounding rock formations. For the fortunate bird watcher you might spot the evasive "Witkruis Arend" raptor nesting high against the cliffs.
