About Doornbosch Game Lodge and Guest Houses

Doornbosch Guesthouse and Country Cottages are part of a 5000ha working farm, with horses, game, fynbos and honey cultivation. We are located in the heart of the rural Overberg, no more than two hours from Cape Town, close to the white beaches of Pearly Beach, and just a few kilometres away from the scenic mission village of Elim.

This rural part of the southernmost area of the Western Cape is a well-kept nature reserve. Life here is relaxed, quiet and unspoiled. This is the place where 'getting away from it all' is really possible.

Verified reviewexcellent

The large house in which we stayed was beautifully finished and appointed with fine furniture and appliances. It truly had a manor house feel to it.The staff were very obliging and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for Heidi and her team. The farm is tranquil and we were treated daily to the buck crossing the farm in the morning and late afternoon.
