About Waterkloof Guest House

Waterkloof Guesthouse, a free range ostrich farm, is situated in the scenic vastness of the Southern Cape, near Swellendam and Heidelberg. A few minutes drive will take you to the holiday town of Witsand with its superb beach and fisherman's paradise.

San Sebastian Bay at Witsand is world famous as the nursery of the Southern Right Whales where they come to breed from May to November. On your way to the De Hoop Nature Reserve with its abundance of wild flowers and animal life, you will cross the Breede River on the famous man-powered Malgas Pont (ferry).


The Guest House:
The main house contains various family heirlooms and the interior speaks of days gone by, mixed with a unique artistic feeling. The Guest House has four guest bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, tea trays and private entrances. The rooms are decorated in the same style as the house and contain valuable antique furniture and art collections. During winter the rooms are warm and cozy, with down duvets and luxurious mohair and electrical blankets. The rooms are serviced daily.

The secluded garden which attracts a number of bird species is ideal for relaxing, especially around the swimming pool area. Relax with a book or just enjoy the beautiful scenery. A specialty to enjoy is Overberg Lager, a refreshing beer produced from local barley, not commercially available.

Jan Fenna's Cottage:
This renovated cottage is situated on top of a hill and has a breathtaking view over the farm and countryside. It has 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and big kitchen – and living room area. It can sleep 5 people. The living room has an extra bed which can be used as a couch or a bed. The interior of the Guest House spilled over onto the cottage and it is furnished and decorated in the old Cape Dutch style.

It is fully equipped with modern gas appliances, but has no electricity. A solar panel generates power for lights and hot water. It has 1 plug for recharging of mobile phones and laptops only (it cannot handle any other electrical appliances). Linen and towels are provided. The cottage has two fireplaces, one inside and one outside. The fireplace in the kitchen is ideal for making a roaring fire in the cold winter months, but can also be used as an indoor barbeque area.


The Uyse are renowned for their hospitality and good South African cuisine. Wholesome breakfasts include fresh farm produce and the adventurous can even indulge in ostrich eggs! Dinner is also available on request and guests can enjoy a typical meal of mutton / lamb and ostrich in the company of their hosts.
