About Vanrhynsdorp Self-Catering Resort

Convenient self-catering accommodation in the heart of the Nama-West Coast. Our resort is situated in the Western Cape town of Vanrhynsdorp in the Matzikama region. Matzikama lays on the N7, Cape Namibia Route, approx. 300km (3 Hours) North of Cape Town and 1200km (11 Hours) from Windhoek. It can also be reached from the North (Gauteng, Mpumalanga, etc) along the N14/R27 via Upington, N12/R27 via Kimberley and the N1/R63 via Bloemfontein and Victoria West.

Self Catering accommodation

Our units are fully equipped and indeed self-catering apartments / units with kitchens, bathrooms, proper “braai” facilities, original oil paintings, quality beds and linen, secure parking as well as the smaller indispensable necessities such as can and bottle openers, dishwashing liquid, cloths, salt and pepper, “braai” tongs, etc. All our apartments / units are equipped with air conditioning.

Although we are animal loving people we unfortunately do not allow pets at our resort. The crime rate at our resort is zero and as a fully registered tourist destination in the Western Cape region, we are proud of our record as hosts of a variety of appreciative guests and well known national and international celebrities. If you want to explore our beautiful and diverse region or just need a hot shower and a place to relax, sleep and regain your strength during / after a long road trip, our resort is ideally suited.


Vanrhynsdorp is the oldest and southernmost town in Namaqualand which is renowned for its breathtaking sunsets, rare flora and carpets of wild flowers appearing miraculously every year between July and September.

Matzikama is home to the northernmost vineyards of the Western Cape, offers the wine lover a selection of cellars to visit for wine tasting and/or purchasing. Hiking trails in and around Matzikama give the hiker the opportunity to absorb the rugged beauty, endless vistas and flora and fauna of the area. Rock art, the ancient pictorial history of the San and Khoi people, abound in the area, with some of the finest to be seen in the Matzikama Mountains. Four x four trails form part of the activities offered to the outdoor, adventurous visitor.

Star gazers paradise! The clear summer night skies, minimal ambient town lighting and nearly zero air pollution make for an ideal setting to explore the southern night skies. Our resort is an excellent stop for holidaymakers or 4x4 travellers on their way to Namibia or visiting the “Knersvlakte” with its rare plant species!

Winter, our rainy season, occurs during the months of May - August and is generally cool with an average temperature of 20°c. Summers on the other hand are warm and dry, with a relatively comfortable average temperature of 29°C.

What to bring along? A camera, video camera, binoculars, good book on flowers of Namaqualand, sunhat, sun-block, sunglasses and an emergency kit.
