Fynbos Guest Farm
Fynbos Guest Farm is a 57 hectare retreat of farm land, fynbos and renosterbos. We are a working farm, and you will always see somebody busy, whether it is felling alien trees, digging, fixing or general maintenance. We have a speed-limit of 15km per hour – for the safety of our guests, children, dogs, birds, animals and to keep the dust down! We have a “no music” rule and also, “no-noise” policy after 10 pm but expect guests to always respect the privacy and peace of fellow caravanners/ campers.
Each site has an electrical point and water needs to be collected from the close-by ablution block. Some sites are more shady than others, but all sites are quite private. Our farm is just 200 metres from the main road (R46) Ceres to Tulbagh and 2 km from Wolseley. There are two small plunge pools for the use of farm guests. All sites have a lovely built in braai.
Renowned for our flowers, visitors from all over visit Fynbos Guest Farm to view our extensive flower species and grass species. This is not to mention, the diverse fauna on the farm, from tortoises, Grysbok, mongoose, steenbok, springbuck and abundant birdlife.
We, at Fynbos Farm, are serious about the sensitive ecology of the area. With this in mind, we have committed to restoring parts of the farm to fynbos, planting proteas and other fynbos flora.
Part of our commitment to the rehabilitation of the area is a slow but determined removal of alien tree species, such as wattle, Port Jacksons, gum and some pine. To counter this we have planted over 350 indigenous trees such as honey bells, bladdernut, karee, jacket plum and wild peach.
We have successfully rehabilitated and released numerous Eagle owls, Barn Owls and other raptors. Egyptian geese, tortoises and other raptors. We have various animals in our farmyard and our guests are invited to interact with them and feed the animals.
Our farm is a haven for animals ranging from large to small, feathered to furry. Our policy is that the critters come first, then the guests and finally ourselves.
Everyone is welcome to bring along apples, carrots, bread, lettuce, etc and feed the animals.
Though “pet-friendly”, we expect guests who have been given permission to bring along their pet/s to respect that our animals, birds, pigs etc live in complete harmony and are not accustomed to ever being chased or harassed in any way! Dogs need to be on a leash when leaving the camp/ caravan area and children are expected to treat all animals and other livestock with respect and care. No large dogs allowed.
