We re running a small game farm on 87 hectares with a few giraffes, bontebok, springbok, eland, wildebeest,reebok, sables, kudu, steenbok, water buck and much more. A haven for wildlife with stunning views. Our 3 cottages offer our guests privacy and we guarantee you will see game during your visit. Fishing in full season at the farm. Guaranteed to catch something at the middle dam or the first bottle wine is on us! :) We also encourage you to walk or cycle the farm. We've built up some stunning picnic areas, ideal for sunsets. Families with kids, and lovers of nature are our favorite guests. Children get a chance to experience normal farm life at the bottom of the farm if they wish, and the green folks are welcome to collect their own veggies if they wish to do so. Permaculture and water conservation are a big part of our philosophy, and we try as best we can, to preserve the local ecosystem. We've done many mistakes on our farm, and we will make many more:)

What a gem! An amazing experience for our family on this small game farm. It is an ideal jump-off for exploring Swellendam, but also to relax and enjoy walking between the giraffes and other game. Swim in the dam and do not forget the apples for the horsies. Well done Kwetu!

Kwetu is a must go if you want to really relax. You can take long walks ,with the most amazing scenery. Giraffes walking freely and different types of animals,including a horse that comes to visit every afternoon. It is definitely value for money and will be returning.

We were surprised by the animals surrounding the cottages. The horses and giraffes came up to our cottage, it was amazing to see. The rest of the animals were all spread out on the farm, and we were able to explore the farm to experience all the other animals as well. The cottages are spacious, neat and well equipped. We will definitely be back.
