A place different from all backpackers i've seen in southern Africa. A 360 view from on top of a hill with great campground firepit/braai available, but you should have your own equipment. The kitchen was poorly equipped with few pots and pans, but it is clean and spacious with dstv available, bar with a breakfast that doesn't stand out but... More

Hard to reach this place, steep hill and long drive but it's worth it. Very friendly people and lovely location to have a guesthouse. Stayed in a log/chalet, the matrass in the bunk bed was totally worn out. WiFi available only in reception. Sanitary facilities are scarce and shower won't get hot very well. Kitchen is quite dirty and old.... More

We tent-camped here just one night in December, during peak Christmas vacation time. Arriving late in the day, we still found many tenting options with unobstructed views of the Indian Ocean. Flat out gorgeous. Tents may be pitched where ever there is space - no delegated sites, so campers left comfortable space between the tents. Some tents were pitched in... More

The roof was leaking badly, there was no hot water for shower, the toilet didn't flush, the room was cold, the owner was living in one of the dorms beside us and smoked in his room, making the entire dorm area reek of cigarette smoke. I told him he is polluting the area and he told me: ' you are... More

This location offers amazing views and a tranquil setting. But come night time, it becomes a different place. The bar is run early into the morning almost every night and trance music from the well equipped speaker system can be heard in every room in the establishment. The only way you will get some sleep is to drink 10 tequila... More

The views down on to the ocean and the Wilderness National Park is hard to beat. Staff is friendly and welcoming. The facilities are clean. One evening we ate at the restaurant there. They served nice pasta with a great salad. The other nights we cooked our own meals in the community kitchen which was also adequate equipped. I found... More

Easily one of the more unique places of any kind that I've ever stayed at. I stayed at the Wild Farm for two nights while doing a Garden Route road trip with friends. The peaceful, open property nestled atop the hills offered 360 degrees views of the ocean and surrounding area. Activities in the area were easily accessible and the... More

The rooms are clean and the the facilities is very good. There is even an outside shower that is so nice to go and experiance. It get quite busy some weekends... More

I thought that this place had a great vibe. We had a group of five and had stayed in the family room which was nice and had a clean bathroom. We arrived late at night and the staff was very accommodating even in the late hour. We had a few beers by the fire and enjoyed the surrounding area. In... More
