About Oewerzicht Tented River Lodge & Farm Cottages
Oewerzicht farm is located in the peaceful and picturesque Greyton Valley only 9 km from Greyton. Oewerzicht is an operational farm with fresh apples, pears, grapes or citrus available from January to June. The rest of the 600 ha farm consists of rolling wheat lands, many cattle and a herd of Reebok. Birdwatchers will also be delighted to see, amongst other, blue cranes, secretary birds, and large flocks of guinea fowl. You are of course free to hike all over the place, or bring your mountain bikes along to enjoy the farm. We also have fishing rods, tractor tubes. There are two lovely braai facilities on the riverbank to use.
Oewerzicht farm has six tents accommodation each with its en-suite bathroom and seven cottages. Welgeleë and Bergzicht are semi-detached and was the original farmhouse. The old blue gum ceilings and Oregon pine doors creates a real farmhouse atmosphere. The cottages are located on the edge of a citrus orchard and about 100 m from the Riviersonderend River where you can do some excellent bass fishing.
Each cottage has its own outside as well as an inside braai facility. The cottages are decorated with old Oregon pine and oak furniture that enhances the atmosphere. The two tree houses in the citrus orchards equipped with mattresses is ideal for mum and dad to take an afternoon nap or for the kids to play in.
Uitsig are four freestanding cottages set next to each other about 300 m from the river on a hill with spectacular mountain views. Each cottage has two bedrooms with double beds, one bathroom, and open plan kitchen living room area with inside as well as outside braai facilities. Uitsig cottages do have a swimming pool between the four. All seven cottages are fully-equipped with all essential appliances. Towels, linen and wood are provided. Please note that we only accept two night bookings over weekends. During the week we do accept one night bookings.

We stayed in Uitsig 2 from 23 to 25 October 2014. The Cottage is well-maintained, super clean and comfortable. The beds are crisp and very comfortable.
The cottages overlook the camping site and the river and has a wonderful view over the surrounding mountains.
We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.
We had a restful weekend. The tent was well equipped and so was the kitchen. Beautiful setting with everything in working order. Friendly staff and very helpful.
This is a wonderful and peaceful place to stay. The views from Uitsig Cottage are gorgeous and the farm is a special place to explore. If you can cross the river and make an appointment to visit Lismore Estate Vineyard - makes a special weekend even more special!
We had the most amazing weekend staying in Welgelee.Thank you for all the hospitality and the great facilities!We'll be back very soon.
