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.
