About Oewerzicht Tented River Lodge & Farm Cottages

Oewerzicht farm is located in the peaceful and picturesque Greyton Valley only 9 km from Greyton. Oewerzicht is an operational farm with fresh apples, pears, grapes or citrus available from January to June. The rest of the 600 ha farm consists of rolling wheat lands, many cattle and a herd of Reebok. Birdwatchers will also be delighted to see, amongst other, blue cranes, secretary birds, and large flocks of guinea fowl. You are of course free to hike all over the place, or bring your mountain bikes along to enjoy the farm. We also have fishing rods, tractor tubes. There are two lovely braai facilities on the riverbank to use.

Oewerzicht farm has six tents accommodation each with its en-suite bathroom and seven cottages. Welgeleë and Bergzicht are semi-detached and was the original farmhouse. The old blue gum ceilings and Oregon pine doors creates a real farmhouse atmosphere. The cottages are located on the edge of a citrus orchard and about 100 m from the Riviersonderend River where you can do some excellent bass fishing.

Each cottage has its own outside as well as an inside braai facility. The cottages are decorated with old Oregon pine and oak furniture that enhances the atmosphere. The two tree houses in the citrus orchards equipped with mattresses is ideal for mum and dad to take an afternoon nap or for the kids to play in.

Uitsig are four freestanding cottages set next to each other about 300 m from the river on a hill with spectacular mountain views. Each cottage has two bedrooms with double beds, one bathroom, and open plan kitchen living room area with inside as well as outside braai facilities. Uitsig cottages do have a swimming pool between the four. All seven cottages are fully-equipped with all essential appliances. Towels, linen and wood are provided. Please note that we only accept two night bookings over weekends. During the week we do accept one night bookings.

                                                  A swimming Pool near the Tents would have been great, as we experienced Hot weather

                                                  The whole three days were spoiled by the continuous noise from the pumphouse, it didn't stop from when we arrived at 14h00 on Tuesday until we left on Friday morning. We did report this and were given the opportunity to move but the alternative was only slightly quieter and not worth the aggravation. The stone cottage was OK but nowhere to hang clothes.

                                                  It was all fabulous and the only thing I’d say is that a bit more mood lighting in the lounge might be nice!

                                                  Lovely , easy going hike through the hills and orchards. River to swim in and enjoyable time with the farm dog.
