About Poortje Game Farm

Poortje is the ideal short holiday destination for weekends and mid-week breaks. Poortje Game Farm comprises of three beautiful stone cottages and two wood cabins situated in the grasslands of the Free State, tucked away and accessed only via serene gravel road.The cottages and cabins are surrounded by ancient rock walls and kraals shaped by a vibrant farm history. Several species of game traverse the farm and gather in the idyllic valley near the Vaal River. Because of the intimate setting of the accommodation, we particularly accommodate groups of friends or family for special events. However, due to its secluded location Poortje is not the most ideal stop and go accommodation especially when arriving at night and it is therefore suggested that guests stay more than a single night.We offer visitors an opportunity to experience the tranquility of the Free State with an array of wildlife on the farm, or walk with undisturbed freedom around the farm with cattle, sheep and fresh air for the whole family. Poortje Game Farm is a perfect breakaway opportunity from the busy city life to peaceful farm where stars fill the night sky and fresh air clears the mind only an hour’s drive from the Vaal Triangle, JHB and the East Rand. It is where life's pace slows down to a tranquil walk among the game in the area. Come and experience outdoor activities like game watching, bird ringing and hiking trails.

Safari: Experience an array of wildlife on the farm, hike into the grasslands and bush with rock walls and various tame game, or birdwatching.

Poortje bied gesellige en gemaklike verblyf aan al ons besoekers, maar die volgende word net weereens onder ons gaste se aandag gebring, om te verseker dat almal tevrede is met die besprekings:
1. Poortje se beligting word deur solar-energie verskaf, wat tot gevolg het dat daar geen 220Volt krag toevoer beskikbaar is nie.
2. Daar is ongeveer 10km se goeie rybare grondpad tot by die bestemming.
Ons sien daarna uit om u by Poortje te ontvang.

Peace & quite, set in tranquil natural surroundings. We enjoyed the weekend being in nature and walking around. Nearby we spotted a family of foxes, during the day we enjoyed a chorus of bird chatter and at night we could year the jackals. The facilities are excellent, we could not want for more. Poortje is a good spot to charge the batteries, We will be back.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay of several days with extended family from SA, Australia and New Zealand in late May. The facilities were excellent; and the hosts and staff were very helpful. The quiet was a true gift -- along with the full moon! We were also impressed by the effective use of solar lights -- quite sufficient for the needs of our large family group.We walked (and some rode) a lot -- it's an ideal venue for getting out, enjoying the views, and spotting the game. To top it all, the price was really reasonable.We'll definitely be back!

An absolute peaceful place where one can recharge batteries and rest,simply just rest whilst gazing at the stars at night and watch the playful wildlife at day. We will definitely visit again!
