About Kwetu Guest Farm

"Kwetu" in Swahili means "Coming home" or "Place of Safety". We pride ourselves on the peace and tranquility that our farm has to offer our guests, with game roaming freely around the farm. Our game include 2 giraffe - Melvin and Sophie, a wildebeest herd, lead by a beautiful golden male, kudu, eland, waterbok, springbok, bontebok, sable and a couple of ostriches.

Get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We are situated on a peaceful farm in Buffeljagsrivier, surrounded by fruit orchards– 11kms outside Swellendam, the third oldest town in South Africa.

We have three comfortable, self-catering, one-bedroom cottages, two of which are alongside a dam. We also have two one-bedroom apartments for rent at the main house, and a family room that sleep 4, with a double bed and 2 single beds. Although these rooms are not situated on the farm, our guests have full access to the farm.

We have 87 hectares in which to walk, jog or cycle. Bring mountain bikes, hiking boots and fishing rods, or if you just want to unwind, a good book and a sun hat.

Safari: All areas on the farm are easily accessible with a family vehicle, and all the animals roam freely across the 87 hectares. See giraffe, wildebeest, kudu, sable, eland, waterbuck springbok and bontebok

Beach: Witsand is just an hour's drive. Turn left as you exit the farm.

Spa: picnic baskets at R200pp can be arranged, but please give us 24 hours notice

Wedding Venues: Chris Elle is just around the corner. They have a great setup for weddings and functions.

Conference Venues: Soon to come, the venue is under development.

Family friendly: For fishing, hiking, cycling, swimming, you've come to the right place. Catch and release normally for the fishing, but if you wish to keep a few, let us know. Also, your kids can feed our farm animals with us if they wish to :)

Romantic: You will experience some of the most breath taking sunsets from our many picnic areas on the farm. All the cottages face the mountain and offer a stunning view across orchards and farm lands, enveloped by the majestic Langeberge.

Covid Safety Approved: All prescribed protocols are strictly adhered to. All staff wear masks, and the units are thoroughly sanitized and deep cleaned after each check out. Social distance is maintained at all times, with minimal contact with our guests

                  Kwetu was a huge surprise - only 2.5 hours from Cape Town with a game farm feel.

                  My husband and I had a very memorable 2 nights at Kwetu Guest farm. We stayed in the unit for 2 with an upstairs bedroom. The unit was still new, clean, had all one needed, including a huge King size bed and lovely linen.We could sit outdoors under the shaded covered area, even in the heat and relax, braai and watch the game close by. The game drives were great and relaxing under one of the covered picnic areas or watching the stunning sunsets was a favorite. The views of the mountains were also spectacular as one listened to the numerous birds flying by. Many thanks to the owners, Adele and...
