My kids love visiting the crocodile farm. Knowledgeable guides. Restaurant facilities with great picnics (you can even hire rods and fish), two playgrounds and beautiful scenery. Worth a visit. Even had my sons birthday party here, great venue.

It truly was wonderful. We never saw so many crocodiles at one place. And the croc pie is fantastic. And it was a experience to hold a crocodile.

Introduced to the farm when going for a trail run (through Dirtopia), certainly exceeded expectations. Most beautiful, and my three small daughters loved the gardens in front of the cellars. They serve a very good cheese platter, and I certainly would recommend if on the wine route.

Was on safari in the Stormberg Mountains and stopped by Stellenbosch before the hunt started to pick up some wine. Had dinner here and it was world class. Very quaint ambiance, great food, excellent service and a great crowd. We had a ball! If I'm in the area again it's a come back for me.

Le Bonheur is just off the R44, near Klapmuts - the turning is awkward but just persevere! Down the hill, then over a little bridge (with a bank of flowering aloes to the left and a sign warning of otters crossing) there are majestic old oak trees and a beautifully renovated farmhouse. So - a picture perfect setting. We went... More

The tasting was great! We did a tour and had some wine tastes from the tank and could compare. So informative!! No other wine farm we did had this available

We really enjoyed getting to see so many crocodiles and learning loads about them. We were pleasantly surprised that we got to hold a baby croc as well! How exciting! Nice cafe and shop to browse in as well.

What an amazing morning spent with my daughter. As it was a weekday we were the only 2 people on the tour. The guide, Stefan, was totally amazing and super informative. The farm is well maintained and we loved learning about the crocodiles. We had brunch afterwards, and this time the food was not as good as the previous time... More
