Farmhouse
Situated on the very popular R355, Platbakkies is the ideal stay-over for tourists exploring our very unique region of Namaqualand. Join the farmer for a day of farming, do a mountain bike trail, go on a game drive, look for a new bird specimen or succulent, relax, and at night enjoy a delicious plate of traditional food freshly prepared. As the African sun sets, the Milky Way welcomes you to the most silent night. Soon the farm animals will wake you for another adventurous day starting with breakfast at the old farmhouse!...Situated on the very popular R355, Platbakkies is the ideal stay-over for tourists exploring our very unique region of Namaqualand.

One night only, en route to the Kgalagadi. This true gem is sparkling clean and well fitted. We took the meals included option and were not disappointed. Am very surprised at so few reviews for such an awesome place. Highly recommended stopover.

Ideal for someone needing time out from the city's everyday hustle and bustle. For those who have never experienced pitch black nights without any noise from neighbors and traffic, THIS is the place to stay!

About the neighbourhood
Platbakkies is a farm in the heart of the Namaqualand of South Africa. On the edge of the Bushmanland, it contains the best of both worlds in that it showcases both the seemingly never-ending plains and the grassy vegetation of the Bushmanland and the mountainous scenery and scrubbery of the Kamiesberge. Here you can enjoy numerous hiking trails, bird watching, succulents and a variety of wild animals in their natural habitat.
Getting around
Getting around on Platbakkies and surrounded area would require a vehicle of your own(or rented) as our nearest town is about 80 km's away. We do however offer farm tours and game watching tours with our own vehicles.
