Drinkwater Guest Farm is located between Ermelo and Amersfoort in Mpumalanga and offers warm South African hospitality and the peace and tranquillity of a beautiful working sheep and cattle farm. The farm acquired its name during the Anglo-Boer war thanks to the clear fresh water springs found on the property. Drinkwater Guest Farm is the ideal stopover between the Drakensberg and the Kruger National Park. We are only two hours away from OR Tambo International Airport.

Very comfortable rooms with good heating for cold days, friendly host and amazing food. Feels very homely, and really enjoyed the old fashioned hospitality. Definitely will want to stay again next time I am in Ermelo!

Our regular stopover on the way from Durban to Kruger. Well located, safe and home away from home hospitality. Host is very accommodating and friendly. Rooms are great. Winter sheets are a spoil in this colder part of the country. Ask for dinner, don’t tell my wife but better than home cooking.

Marloth Park, South Africa1 contribution
Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Food was excellent, service exceptional. Mariaan and Petrus treated us like family and Angel was constantly anticipating our every need at table. It was mid-winter when we were there but everything was provided to make us warm and comfortable - wall heaters, winter sheets and electric blankets. This is an overnight stop I highly recommend! Far from town, there is no traffic noise and the only sounds disturbing the still night was the farm's resident sheep ocassionally complaining about the cold!

We spent 1 night to break up the journey between Hazyview and the Midlands, and had a wonderful stay. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable & warm, breakfast was delicious. Great value for money, I highly recommend Drinkwater.
