Fodor's Review

This stylish guesthouse is set on a working ostrich farm on the Calitzdorp side of Oudtshoorn. The rooms are all individually decorated with beautiful antiques, and all of the bathrooms have Victorian claw-foot tubs. Guests are greeted with welcome drinks in the elegant lounge or on the veranda overlooking the valley. If you're keen on seeing what ostrich farming is all about, you can do an informal and informative tour with the owner of the farm—so much better than all the hype you'd get at the show farms. The turnoff to the farm is 7 km (4 mi) west of Oudtshoorn and is well marked from the R62.
