About Oudrif

In the Cedarberg, on the banks of the Doring River, Oudrif provides accommodation in stylish straw bale cottages, for people who relish peace and quiet and being close to nature. The pristine river provides ample opportunity for paddling, swimming, fishing and sun bathing on secluded beaches.

Local legend has it that when God was making the earth he had all the flower seeds in one pocket and accidentally let them fall out over Namaqualand. Since then, every winter, the area has played host to the largest wild flower display in the world.

Oudrif is situated on the unspoilt Doring River at the foothills of the Cedarberg in a transition zone between the Cedarberg, Karoo and Nama regions. This unique location has resulted in Oudrif being home to a stunning variety of fauna and flora, as well as a rich heritage of San rock art, Stone Age artefacts and fossils whose origins date back millions of years.


Oudrif provides fully catered accommodation in stylish straw bale cottages. The cottages are constructed using environmentally sound principles, including the use of timber from invasive trees, pre-used fittings and solar power for lights.

In keeping with the overwhelming sense of peace at Oudrif, it was decided that if the experience was to be shared with others, preservation of the heritage of the area was imperative. Therefore accommodation on the farm is limited to a maximum of 10 people at any one time. This not only ensures the serene contentment visitors deserve, but also limits the impact that people have on the sensitive environment.


Caf style, fusion food and drinks are served in the boma or dining area, all contained in an area that has been kept as natural as possible. All in all, a good time is guaranteed. Oudrif caters for special dietary requirements.

Children & Pet Policy

No children under 14 years.

Activities & Attractions

For our active visitors, the Doring River provides opportunities for swimming, paddling, white-water rafting and fly-fishing in season as well as hiking, visiting San rock art sites, medicinal plants and birding. Hiking trails, mountain bike trails, the Olifants River Wine Route and 4x4 trails are all popular activities within the surrounding region.

Those seeking to detoxify from the stress of modern living will find the sparkling clear air, the pure silence, the secluded beaches and the low light levels at night are what makes Oudrif the ideal getaway for star gazing, sun bathing, soul searching and simply relaxing in splendid isolation in the heart of the African wilderness.

Stayed a couple of nights at Oudrif this summer. Oudrif is in a beautiful tranquil location in the Cedarberg and its a great drive from Cape Town to get there. Bill and Jeanine were fantastic hosts, the food was top notch and they have gone to great lengths to provide an exceptional level of hospitality. The eco-friendly setup is very impressive, with the straw bale cottages, organic vegetable garden and solar energy (there seems to be no shortage of sun!) leaving minimal negative impact on the environment. A most enjoyable stay in peace and solitude.

I stayed for three days at Oudrif Guest Farm. When i first arrived i was intrigued by the eco-friendly, yet luxurious accomodation provided; the use of plastered hay bales on wooden logs gave the cottages an individual feel. the food provided was amazing and dining with the managers gave one the feeling that you had their complete attention- a wondreful feeling for guests. each meal provided was different from the last and fantastically prepared. The bushmen cave paintings walk was really interesting and if i had stayed at oudrif any longer i would have liked to have investigated the various other trails on offer. throughout my stay at oudrif, i was completely relaxed and it was really nice to get away from cape town for a couple of days- swimming in the river helped this wonderful relaxed feeling. i definitely intend to visit again next time i feel i need to escape from that crowded city feel!!
