We took our family to Wilgewandel whilst in Oudtshoorn. It is a lovely, small and clean facility especially geared towards families. There are camel and donkey rides, a foefie slide, an animal farm, some trampolines and cars and some play gyms. This is a lovely place for children to play whilst mom and dad have a bite to eat.

This place is excellent for teenagers! Most of the activities here are catered for older children and we saw that they had the most fun playing with their larger groups of friends. Younger children can only participate in playing with the farm animals displayed. Definitely a great place to stop by and rest as the foods and drinks facilities are... More

I loved the pedal cart, pedal boat, camel rides, petting zoo and also the ostrich burgers. And the prices are reasonable too! Nothing about this place I did not like.

Stopped over here after visiting the Congo caves and it was a great idea, we were a group of 12 so we told them we were coming and we're treated like royalty. The venue has so many activities for the kids and a great outdoor seating area under mist sprayers to beat the heat. I was surprised at how fast... More

We recently moved to Oudtshoorn from the City and Wilgewandel is our regular "kuier" place. Safe environment for the kids to let loose and have fun while the adults can relax and enjoy a drink. The food are all good quality, reasonably priced and SO DELICIOUS! So much to see and do, and we keep going back time and time... More

I went to the Wilgewandel Holiday Farm few months ago, and it was really fun. It was a playful and a perfect place to hangout, play and eat with my family! When we went there, we ate at the restaurant in front of the store area, and then we had some great times enjoying our delicious meals, for example like... More

We stayed at the beautifully preserved farm house. The bed was very comfortable and the original Oregon line wooden floors reminded me of growing up on the farm. We ordered food from the kitchen. All traditional afrikaans meals. It was delivered and delicious. Staff are all very Friendly and competent.

This is a small farm between Oudtshoorn and Cango Caves with great activities like Camel riding, Donkey carting and many more fun activities to do with animals. It was very nice to be in close contact with these animals that we fear sometimes. We also bought a couple of items, mainly hand made, to remember the trip by.
