About Desert Dew Guesthouse

This farm is set in a traditional Karoo environment with historical structures from the previous century dating back 150 years ago still visible in several locations. Several Khoi San Bushmen drawings can be found.

Modderfontein farm is the highest point between Cape Town and Johannesburg, 1300 m above sea level. The Karoo is a semi-desert area, however Modderfontein farm has six natural springs on the farm and the water is of very good drinking quality. Our home is a place of true peace and tranquility. We invite you to escape the crowds of city life and come relax with us. We offer three comfortably furnished bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms and the other bathroom is opposite the third bedroom. We offer laundry and cleaning services to all guests. There are tea and coffee-making facilities in all rooms with homemade rusks. There is a self-catering fully equipped kitchen available for all guests.

The guest house is on a working farm with sheep, angora and cattle. There are various activities to fill up your days such as hiking, 4x4-ing, mountain biking, quad biking, donkey cart riding and birdwatching.

                      From the moment of Arrival, we were impressed. Erika is a brilliant hostess who made us feel very welcome. The chalet is well equipped with comfortable beds, and many surprise extras e.g. milk and cereal. The whole place was spotless, the setting and quietness marvellous. I will definitely recommend this venue to everyone who I know travels that route. Cheryl Kleyweg
