Important Information

Old Mill Drift is 27kms from Clarens and is the same distance to Fouriesburg.

We have a 3km dirt road that changes with the seasons. During our dry months, small vehicles can use the easier "standard vehicle road". As long as we don't have rain, smaller vehicles can reach us quite easily. In rainy season it is advised you bring a high profile vehicle. Non 4x4's can make it, however we do ask for car information before arrival so we can assist with a shuttle (for an extra fee to cover petrol).

Self checkin option available.

We needed a secure fence for our dogs and we had to stay in the ugliest place right behind reception. There were other chalets that we would have preferred but the fences were apparently not as secure. I would recommend that more of the... Read more

The best of the Berg. Serene farm in old world, with pear tree dropping fruit on roof, horses chewing on lawn and the biggest crow exclaiming its ownership of the roof.Luxuries of bath, kitchen and comfy bed. Yet all the space to explore the outdoers. Thanks for borrowing us a dog, made it even more homely.
