We had a lovely stay. Loved the fireplace in bedroom. All staff are very friendly. We unfortunately only stayed one night, and we couldn't explore more. Lots to do there. Would have loved to do the hiking trail. Next time. Recommended!

About
Description
Melton Wold is the oldeste guest farm in South Africa - since 1938! It is a working game- and sheepfarm. Photographers and nature lovers can never exhaust the resources of the veld, with 210 different bird species More to see. While geologists and paleontologists will see everything from a diamond mine, kimberlitic and fossil remains, including a Bradysaurus fossil dating back to approximately two hundred and fifty million years ago. Accommodation consists of single, double and family rooms and is provided in an enlarged farm house, the main part of which dates back to 1889. Eighteen of the twenty-three rooms are en suite. Each room is equiped with a mounted wallpanel and electric blankets for winter. Some of the rooms have fireplaces. Each room have fans for the summer heat. Come and relax in our ladies bar, The Deer and Pheasant. We have 10 campsites on grass and an ablution block. Each stand has its own tap, electric point and braai. Less
