On the Farm



We have a lovely large swimming pool that is available to all guests to enjoy.  Bring your own swimming towels. Please make sure that children are supervised at the swimming pool area.


We love our guests to make use of the surround by hiking on the farm. Pack your walking shoes, daypack and sunscreen. We're especially proud of our dramatic view site from which you can view the entire gorge. This is well worth an early morning hike to catch the sunrise.


Our squash court is available at all times to our guests. Please bring your own equipment as we do not supply any. White shoes only on the court.



Oribi Gorge Guest Farm is visited by many avid bird watchers, since it is home to over 255 different species of birds, including the Cape vulture. Don't forget to pack your binoculars! 

Kids' play area

We've recently upgraded our kid's play area, which includes a trampoline and jungle gym.


Each cottage is equipped with its own braai facilities. There is also a comfortable patio for a family braai near the pool. Please remember to take any glasses or plates back to your unit.



Grab your rod, gumboots and your bait and come and catch one of the many Bass in the beautiful onsite dam at Oribi Gorge Guest Farm. Please remember to bring your own equipment as we do not supply any.


Please note: Although there are horses on our farm, we do not offer horse riding. Regrettably, the tennis court is not available for guests to use.
