About Homtini Guest Farm

Homtini Guest Farm is to be found at the beginning of the Homtini Pass, overlooking the Homtini Valley with beautiful views of acres upon acres of indigenous forest, framed by the Outeniqua Mountains.


Homtini Guest Farm offers a wide variety of accommodation from our romantic Luxury Safari Couples Tented Lodges for our honeymooners and couples, to our Family Tented Lodges and Forest Cottages.

Luxury Safari Couples Tented Lodges
Our Luxury Safari Couples Tented Lodges are romantic hideaways, backed by the forest and overlooking beautiful valleys of Fynbos, offer a high degree of privacy. Each Couples Tented Lodge has an open plan living area with a Queen-size bed (including electric blankets), small fridge, table and chairs, full compliment of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils as well as pots and pans. The bathroom is en suite and has a shower, basin and toilet. On the deck you will find a set of camping chairs and a gas Weber braai.

Family Tented Lodges
Each Family Tented Lodge can sleep four. Inside each Tented Lodge there is a double bed and a double bunk. We supply all linen as well as electric blankets for the double bed, hot water bottles and extra blankets for the double bunks. Each Tented Lodge has an open plan living space with table and chairs, fridge, kettle and a cabinet with a full compliment of crockery, cutlery and culinary implements. Each Tented Lodge has an en suite bathroom with a shower, 2 basins and a toilet. Each Tented Lodge has its own private braai place. The two family Tented Lodges are about 20m apart. Separating them is a Tented Kitchen. In here you will find 2 gas cookers, each with 2 stove plates, pots, pans and a washing up area. The Tented Lodges are great family fun!

Forest Cottages
We have three Forest Cottages that can sleep from 4 to 6 people. Each Forest Cottage has two bedrooms. We have equipped the kitchens with a full compliment of cutlery, crockery, glassware, some pots and pans and culinary utensils. There are four plate ovens, microwaves, toasters and a large fridge in each Cottage. Inside you will find a fireplace, TV (with the SABC channels and eTV) and a DVD machine. We have a small DVD library at Reception guests are most welcome to. Outside, on the deck, you will find table and chairs for “al fresco” dining, a braai with grid, tongs and a supply of braai wood as well as breath taking views. The deck is well shaded so you can braai rain or shine!

Activities and Attractions

We have walking trails through 60 hectares of private indigenous forest, a pool, sauna and therapeutic massage available on the farm. There is also great bird life on the farm for birdwatchers to enjoy.


Children can enjoy the experience of a working farm - collecting their own eggs from the hen house. Children can also enjoy riding their bikes on the safe farm roads. We also offer babysitting services in the comfort of your own Cottage or Tented Lodge.

Attractions Nearby

We are only 20 minutes away from the town of Knysna or Buffalo Bay Beach. We are close to several nature reserves with forest streams, waterfalls, biking and hiking trails and forest horse rides. We have Guest Information Files in each Cottage or Tented Lodge, listing all the great activities available in the surrounding areas as well as relevant contact details

We had such a wonderful stay at Homtini. The cottage was so comfortable and well equipped, and in such a stunning location! We didn't want to leave! Samantha at reception was great and very helpful. We will definitely be back.

Homtini if one of our favourite places to stay! You will not find better hospitality! Even with our second visit the openness and welcoming atmosphere were still present. Me and my husband have visited many places and can honestly say that Homtini is OUR home away from home! Not to mention the stunning views! Thank u Meagan and Owen!
