About Big Creek Guest Lodge

Built on a 17 hectare portion of the original Boschfontein farm, which varies from rocky kopies to a quiet stream under weeping willow trees.

These units lead off a large court yard with unique fire place. A self-catering two sleeper fisher-mans Log Cabin has an open kitchen and overlooks a small dam.

What a refreshing stay, ideal getaway to reconnect with your loved ones. I came with my partner and 3 months baby, we thought there would be lots of bugs and mosquitoes so we came with a doom and a bug lotion only to find a pleasant atmosphere with not much insects, we didn't even use the lotion. Thank you so much for a lovely time, we are definitely coming again ...

My partner and the kids enjoyed the swimming pool so much. The bar was never open, I wonder if it's because of the holidays?
