Kwetu Guest Farm is situated on a peaceful farm in Buffeljagsrivier – 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, a long room. We have 87 hectares in which to walk, jog or cycle. Do bring your fishing rod as well! Brand new baby sable born last month at Kwetu!

Safari: We're only a small farm, 87 hectares, we do not allow hunting of any kind , and you will be able to get close with most our animals. We have Sable, Bontebok, Kudu, Water buck, Reebok, Eland, Springbok, and so much more.

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

Spa: game drives for 120 rand pp picnic baskets at 95 rand pp

Golf: Horse riding can also be arranged for a fee. We have an amazing horse on the farm, Mister Finley, who has an amazing temperament and loves his apples.

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. We expect that part of the farm to be completed end of August. The facilities will include a covered venue, a kitchen, picnic areas, a courtyard, and more.

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 :)
