About El Yolo One

El Yolo One is a working Karoo guest farm situated at the foot of the Swartberg mountain range in the Great Karoo. Our guests are able to come into close contact with a variety of farm animals such as cattle, sheep, turkeys, ducks, geese, peacocks and chickens.

We have tame and wild game such as Eland, Springbok, Kudu and Duiker. Our bird life is extensive. Many wild and endangered wild flowers and flora have been spotted. We offer night game drives and 4x4 routes for the experienced as well as the inexperienced.

Hiking trails have been created for the more adventurous hiker or those who wish to take a casual walk. Fascinating Bushman rock paintings can be found in three different caves on the farm. Fossil spotting and unpolluted mountain streams and waterfalls are some of the unusual features of the farm.

The photos online did not do El Yolo justice. We were expecting a lot less from a 150 year old Farmhouse, but we were pleasantly surprised with the facilities. I completely fell in love with the beautiful kitchen equipped with everything one could possibly need to bake and make gorgeous food. The farm is picturesque and one can loose oneself in the quiet calm. Just a tip for future guests - it really is in the middle of nowhere and the small Karoo towns en route are not great for grocery shopping. Make sure you don't forget anything.

We visited El Yolo on the 15th September and stayed in the Wooden Bungalow. The whole experience was wonderful...the area is BEAUTIFUL, the views is fantastic and the host Helene is a wonderful cook...we had "Skaapribbetjies" and "Oxtail" for dinner. We really enjoyed our kuier with Helene and friends on Friday night! What a piecefull and relaxing space! And to cap it all...it was full moon and the whole veldt was bathed in this silver light...very beautiful! Thanx guys for a wonderfull stay, may God bless and protect you! Olga and Esme from Kimberley.
