About Gifberg Holiday Farm

Gifberg Holiday Farm is situated a mere 29 km from Vanrhynsdorp and offers the ideal getaway to experience nature with a difference.

Guests have a choice of staying in one of six fully equipped self-catering chalets that can sleep between four and 13 guests, each with its own appeal. The chalets are furnished with a combination of double and single or three-quarter beds, as well as private bathrooms with showers. Linen, towels and cleaning supplies are provided for convenience. The kitchens are equipped with two-plate stoves, fridges, cutlery and crockery. Some of the chalets also have fireplaces or fans and heaters.

A large communal hall is equipped with a central barbecue area with chairs and tables, and guests can start their day with freshly-ground coffee at the Oppi Dek Coffee Shop while enjoying the fresh country air and the serene view. On those hot days, guests can also cool down in the pool or just relax on the lawn under the trees.

The farm offers various walking and hiking trails with bushman painting sites along the way. Guests can also do a 4x4 route, take a swim in the natural pools or just explore the wild flower wonders of Namaqualand.

                          Ons verblyf in hierdie huisie en in die natuur, was 'n fees! Dit was erg om die swak grondpad daarheen twee maal te ry, maar die heerlike huisie het daarvoor vergoed!

                          We managed to do two and a bit of the four hiking trails on offer (Potholes, Hamerkop and 5km of the 20km Bushman Trail). All highly enjoyable and recommended if you're okay with uneven terrain. Some of the footprint markers could do with renewing, but half the fun was finding them along the trail. Count yourself lucky if the labrador decides to join you. She is a charming, adorable and patient trail guide. We were in Kranshuis, which was warm and cosy on the cooler nights and is just below the end of the Potholes route with easy access up the little mountain for some fantastic views.The Gifbe...

                          Warm welcome. Cleanliness. Cosy bedroom. Farm atmosphere... Long walks... Beautiful views... Time to be alone -- no crowds, no cellphone reception - great! Away from the hussle and buzzle of the city!

                          It was very beautiful and something else. We were just missing some coffee, tea, sugar and milk in die chalet.
