My family (husband, 20 year old daughter, sister and I) just returned from a truly amazing and wonderfully relaxing 4 night stay at this paradise. The self-catering rooms are positively lovely with views from the balcony of grazing pastures and majestic mountains. Waking up to the sounds of the farm animals and, if you go in Spring like we did, you may even be lucky enough to witness new additions to the farm families every morning. Two beautiful new calves were born whilst we were on the farm and a number of little kid goats - awesome. Pienaar has to be congratulated on running this superb establishment and you just have to treat yourself to a home-cooked meal - heavenly!!! Prices are incredibly reasonable and it is just a super feel-good place for a relaxing break. We will definately be back and can recommend Wilgewandel with assurance to anyone looking for comfort, peace, quite, tranquility and a breath of fresh air. Treat yourself today....book a stay at Wilgewandel, you won't be disappointed.

Spent the 3 to 7 October in one of the 2 sleepers on the farm. Rustic accomodation with beautiful morning and evening views across the fields from the verandah. Accommodation and activities priced for the South African pocket and the owners and staff were very helpful and friendly.

A safe environment where parents can relax with a meal or refreshment while the children expend their energy feeding the farm animals or playing on the many playground activities.

The farm can be used as a base from which to visit all the tourist attractions that are located within a radius of 11 km from the farm.

I particularly loved the smell of the herbs as I drove through the hills to town or to the attractions.

Wilgewandel exceeded my expectations which was a homestay on a farm, farm animals and activities for my niece as well as a safe and friendly environment.

The Grade 5 learners (130)from Sunridge Primary , Port Elizabeth,visited the camel farm in early September. The staff were most professional and had a wonderful rappore in all their dealings with the children. They need a gold medal. The children were divided into groups. Every child had the opportunity to partake in all the activities. The supervision was excellent and the children had a very relaxing but incredibly busy day in a safe environment. Well done to Peet and his team. See u next year!

Very nice rooms, and fabulous views with the lake and the farm, but most of it incredible service by very nice people. Thanks Pienaar and the rest of the staff for making our stay so pleasant.
I would definitely recommend it due to location, security and price.

I went a school group. The kids learned a lot and the team-building was great. The individual activities was excellent and they could be kept busy for the whole day. The restaurant provided gourmet meals and the personell was very friendly and helpfull. I would recommend Wilgewandel very highly for any group.

I'll certainly be coming back.
