General

  • Family-friendly rural site on a working farm spread over 67 hectares
  • A 15-min drive from Ceres fruit farms and less than an hour from Paarl
  • Plunge pools, playground and braai areas on site

They call it Fynbos Guest Farm, but it’s not just bush-like fynbos that fills this 67-hectare estate five minutes’ drive from the Western Cape town of Wolseley. Much of the space is taken up by a working farm – so come prepped to meet a collection of friendly farm animals (even friendlier if you're bearing apples, carrots and other such treats for them).

Fynbos and farm come together to form a most peaceful rural retreat, one that maintains its atmosphere with a no-noise/no-music policy (all the better to hear the birdsong and have a good night’s sleep) and a speed limit of 15 kilometres per hour to ensure the safety of all lives on site. Being in a countryside location, water comes from a borehole so guests are asked to keep an eye on how much they splash around.

Speaking of water, the farm has a couple of plunge pools to cool off in on a hot summer’s day, and a bathroom block that’s cleaned daily. Barbecues are encouraged at the braai areas provided, and there’s firewood and ice for sale to help proceedings along. Any food you need to stash away until cooking time can be kept in the guest fridge, so feel free to stock up at the supermarket in town while you’re there.

The area around the farm lends itself to outdoor activities: walking trails leave from the site or you can find something more challenging nearby in the Witzenberg Mountains. Horse riding, ziplining and fruit picking are all within 15 minutes, and the wine estates of Paarl less than an hour away.

Amazing campsite and animal sanctuary near Tulbagh09/05/2019

    Absolutely spectacular campsite nestling in the valley near Tulbagh in the Winelands of the Western Cape. First and foremost, Fynbos Guest Farm is an animal sanctuary, home to more than 100 animals including zebras, springbok, horses, donkeys, pigs, goats, sheep, ducks and geese, rabbits and guinea pigs, llamas and alpacas, tortoises, emus and ostriches. There is also a huge aviary with a stunning collection of beautiful birds. Dotted around the animal pens, the owners have laid out beautiful gardens which are a simply stunning place to wander around. There is an extensive area of natural fynbos vegetation (with easy, laid out walking trails) and glorious views of the mountains. The camp site is very well maintained with a great ablutions block and electricity, and braii areas at each site. It's a perfect place for kids, with playground and small swimming pool (as well as the opportunity for petting and feeding lots of animals!) You can buy fire wood on site, as well as plants from the owners' nursery. It's an easy drive from nearby Tulbagh or Ceres. The owners are incredibly helpful and all the staff are very friendly. (If you don't want to camp, there are also three lovely little self-catering cottages). Strongly recommend.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. It's perfect

Local attractions

A wander around the site is a good place to start (there’s plenty of space for such activities, after all…), but if you want a lengthier hike, it’s recommended that you head to the Witzenberg Nature Reserve (10 minutes’ drive), for mountain paths and splendid lakes views.

For a different way to see the scenery, exchange hiking shoes for horse riding boots at the stables 15 minutes’ drive away or take it all in at high speed whizzing along at Ceres Zipslide Adventures (also 15 minutes).

Something a little more leisurely? If you’re here in the right season, stick around in Ceres (15 minutes) to tour through a fruit farm, plucking punnets full of juicy cherries. They’ll be a fab follow-up to your evening braai, and it’ll be even better if you pick up a bottle or two from the wine estates around Tulbagh (15 minutes).

Head a little further from the site for trips to Karoo National Botanical Gardens (half an hour) or to the famed wineries and foodie shops around Paarl.
