Beautiful scenery, nice bar with view of ocean, hills, horses and cows. Don't think the place is making use of it's full potential. Communal kitchen dirty and definitely needs more kitchenware and utensils. Also in need of new mattresses and extra blankets in the rooms. Safe to take a walk or run outside the place. Nonetheless, a lovely stay.

After booking accommodation for two people, I was given incorrect information about the prices of the camping. After arriving there they informed us the the price will increase, not sure if this was based on my skin colour that the priced was increased. Was supposed to stay there for a week but had to cut it short since they didn't... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Wild Farm in Wilderness and it was one of our favourite stops along the Garden Route. First of all, this place is located on a beautiful spot atop a hill with great views of the beach. It's a little ways outside the town, but that's the beauty of it - you're... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here and the first thing that greets you after trekking up that bumpy road is one of the most beautiful views you will ever see. The staff were friendly and helpful . the breakfast is also quite nice with a large selection of things. The bar area is also cozy . the kitchen area is... More

We stayed at this backpackers when me and a mate were doing the Garden Route and I really did find it super special. The backpackers is beautiful and has such a good vibe! We were camping and there were lots of different spots to pitch our tent so you can make sure you wake up to a really crazy view!... More

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
