WHY WE LOVE IT:
We have too many reasons to name! This is without a doubt one of the most desirable locations in all of South Africa. The farm has such a transformative atmosphere and you’ll really feel like you have been whisked away to a time passed. Our favorite rooms are the Fynbos Cottages, which each come with their own golf cart so you can access your room through the citrus grove. Being this far off the grid has a very earthy feel to it and will ensure you have the opportunity to switch off from it all.
