About Melkboomsdrift Guest House & Conference Centre

Melkboomsdrift Lodge is situated in the heart of the Olifants River Valley, between Vredendal and Lutzville. This working wine farm, with a restored farmhouse circa 1820, is an ideal stopover between Cape Town and Namibia on the N7, with the West Coast just 20 minutes away for whale-spotting.

The quaint rooms feature private entrances and bar fridges, and delicious farm breakfasts are served, with dinner and picnic baskets available on request. Self-catering options are also available. Guests can relax at the pool side, overlooking the river or vineyards or cruise up-river for birding or the seasonal wild flowers.

The guest house is located on the fertile banks of the Olifants River, on the famous South African West Coast. This gem of South Africa's West Coast, has everything and more to offer the battle-weary businessman or adventurous tourist.

Had we had more time we would have made this our home base for exploring this region as it is located centrally between Lutzville and Vredendal. Breakfast was freshly prepared and suitable for young and old, given we were travelling with kids.
