I had the most wonderful 4 day holiday in Wilderness at the Wild Farm. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. You are literally in the Wilderness. It's a 10 minute drive up the mountain, where you have the choice to sleep in a tent, in a private cabin or in the backpackers lodges. All of the options are reasonably priced. There... More

Wilderness provides the scenery, Wilderness Backpackers provides the accommodation, both in equal measures of excellence. This is a hostile that you come to for a very relaxing stay, it is a place to enjoy a drink overlooking the wonderful Indian Ocean and the stunning forests surrounding the Touw river. It is a fantastic transformation of a farm into affordable and... More

With a family of 8 finding affordable accommodation in sought after Wilderness Heights and it's sunkissed sandy beaches is not possible. Wild farm on the hill offered us a comfortable 9 bed dorm with a stunning view which felt like a little piece of heaven. A basic breakfast but adequate and the cows and horses a definite winner with our... More

This place had great views and good facilities but was so hard to find though even with sat nav! It's also at the top of a massive hill which wasn't easy to get to the top given that part of it was a really steep dirt track, that combined with torrential rain didn't make for the best journey. Our wooden... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Wild Farm. A short drive outside of Wilderness, the views here are really stunning. I would recommend having a car just for your own ease of transportation but there are regularly two shuttles daily into town and the staff are friendly and willing to help out however needed. It really does have a... More

The view from the wildfarm has got to be it's best asset. Set on top of a hill overlooking the ocean and the rest of the town, your evening sundowners will be a highlight of your stay. Accomodation is basic and fairly comfortable though there are not nearly enough ablution facilities when the place is fully booked. Additionally it is... More

The place has great views from the site, the land is under utilised. They could do much more with the land they have. Rooms are decent, but a bit dusty. Found all the staff very friendly and the owners as well. Most of the staff seem to be foreigners working for free board and lodging, so don't expect them to... More

Decent accommodation. Helpful staff. Very basic and simple. Warm showers. Nice bar and patio to have some drinks, although drinks are quite expensive. Very chilled and relaxed atmosphere. Great views as well.

There's not enough I can say about The Wild Farm. My husband and I spend 5 amazing days here and everything was perfect. Firstly, the location is great; you get the most beautiful spot to watch the sunset every evening and you have the choice of ocean or hillside views during the day. The farm is about a 45 min...

We spent one night at the Wild Farm. The accommodation is simple, but enough to cover everything you need. The chalet we had was very clean, only the mattress from the bed was old and not so comfortable. JP and his friend from reception were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was very nice and filling, with cereals, fruit, bread,... More
