Excellent place to be when you have small kids, up to 10 years, I'd say. The apartments are set up in the way it is easy to relax when you have children. The only think I missed was daily cleaning (there was none), better stove (only two cooking spots) and the pool could be cleaner. The owners are great and... More

We can highly recommend the African Family Farm. An experience beyond expectations. It's all there! Clean, spacious cottages with adjacent large playground for kids, a little children's farm with a broad range of animals. The owners Stefan and Sabine are more than friendly and helpful. It's a good fall out spot to discover all of cape town's to do's .... More

The African Family Farm was our last stop in our vacation in South Africa and it was by far the most family and kid friendly stay in any respect. There are all facilities kids can dream of (various playgrounds, pool, separate activity house for kids, petting zoo, ultra friendly dogs etc. etc. The cottages are styled each individually and we...

The location is very good, houtbaai is a very nice little town with a beach and capetown is only 20 minutes away by car. The kids loved the place with the swimmingpool, the animalfarm, the playground and the lovely dog sasou. The... More
