About Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm

Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm is a working veld management and flower conservation farm, offering three self-catering cottages.

The three sandstone and thatched cottages are fully equipped, with furnishings maintaining historical charm. Gas lamps and lanterns provide lighting and add to the ambiance of the houses. Gas geysers ensure that guests can still enjoy a luxurious warm bath. The kitchens are fully equipped for those who would like to self cater, and for those who want to be spoiled, a three course dinner is prepared and breakfast is served at the main house. Each cottage has an inside hearth and down duvets. Hot water bottles are provided for the cold winter nights.

The variety of activities include hiking, biking and birdwatching. There are 146 different species of bird in the area. Unspoiled fynbos, the largest range of indigenous bulbous plants in the world, San rock art and breath taking canyons will keep visitors intrigued. A private waterfall and natural rock swimming pool provides entertainment close to the cottages.

After a hot day, experience nature by cooling down in one of the natural rock pools of Papkuilsfontein or opt for the farm dam next to your cottage.

It is one of those truly special places where the right combination of warmth, beauty, homeliness and wild have been achieved. The quality of peace and stillness defies description.

                  Everything was great. From the warm reception, to the cozy stone cottage, tasty 2 course dinner and11km hike to the gorge. Can't fault this place which is why we keep coming back.

                  This was our most expensive self-catering cottage (De Hoop) on a long journey through SA. The description of a 'working sheep farm' sounded charming. Unfortunately, it was actually an severely over-grazed feedlot. Much of the indigenous vegetation has been removed and what had escaped the harrow was clinging to rocky outcrops or on the edge of the property. A walk in any direction entailed crunching over kilometres of sheep droppings, like cocoapops! There is a mole invasion ( perhaps predators have been supressed)munching their way through the 'bulb capital of the world'. The cottage, was...

                  We enjoyed the tranquility, privacy and perfect accommodation. The farm offers so many surprises, walks, lovely pools, canyon and more. I shall definitely be back. Compliments to the owners for the neat, authentic and very well equipped houses we stayed in. For any potential guests from Germany:Wir befehlen Papkuilfontein gern - sehr gemuetlich und gut eingerichted. Wunderbare Ruhe Natur mit sehr schoenen Wanderwegen und Rockpools . Einfach entspannen ohne Elektizitaet und Wlan.

                  A beautiful stone cottage surrounded by magnificent Karoo scenery. We were well cared for in great comfort. Best breakfast ever served in the morning
