From the first phone call I made TO Elna, I knew that choosing to go to this place is not a mistake. Her hospitality is way beyond, she went all out to make sure we had the most pleasant stay there. Such a beautiful place indeed. Just between mountains, not exposed to too much sunlight. Definitely the most beautiful place I have ever been to my entire life.

After a terrible 2020, as a family, we just wanted to get out and away from the worries of this virus, find ourselves and we could not have chosen a better place than De Poort Country Lodge. Thank you Elna and Paul for making our stay so wonderful and for breaking bread with us. We came to find ourselves and we were blessed to have found new friends. In spite of the Klein Karoo being a semi-desert area, the gardens are well maintained, the accommodation in the cottage served and fulfilled our family's needs 100%. The property and all the amenities are well kept. We will definitely be staying there again. Thank you again Elna & Paul for your hospitality and for making it feel like HOME!

We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at De Poort and it was absolutely perfect. Elna goes the extra mile for her guests and there was nothing to fault. Will definitely be our place of choice when we up that end of the world.
