Our homestead is situation on the edge of the Cape Winelands, which offers ease of access to wine-tasting trips to wine estates, bicycle rides through the winelands, bird-watching at surrounding wetlands, and other outdoor activities.

The homestead includes backpacker facilities with three private rooms and a dormitory.
We sleep up to 18 people and also cater for overlanders or campers, when required.
Our facilities and set-up is more like a home than a typical backpackers.
