About Silwerfontein Farm

Silwerfontein is a beautiful pet-friendly working farm that is declared a Natural Heritage Site, surrounding the Voëlvlei Dam, with stunning fynbos- and mountain views.

There are four charming cottages available, as well as a Double Decker Bus and two Campsites set in the forest. Since the farm borders on a nature conservancy and the area surrounding the Voëlvlei Dam, an interesting variety of game and birdlife can be seen.

The cottages are fully equipped and private, with clean bedding provided. Guests must bring their own bath- and swimming towels. Solar energy powers the lights, and additional oil lamps add to the ambience. Wood-burning fireplaces turn the cottages into snug and warm havens in winter. Wake up to the sound of nature; with no TVs, radios or hairdryers to disturb the peace.

A range of hiking- and biking trails are available, with more exiting routes in the process of being developed. We also have our own herd of wild ponies happily roaming the farm.

                  Loved the silence and simplicity of everything. Karin is a very kind and helpful person. We had some issues with heat and gas but mainly due to the bad weather. Definitely visit again.

                  We loved Silwerfontein which we visited the past Easter weekend. Lobely cottage with the essentials and friendly host Karin. Road to the farm a bit of a challenge but once there you forget about that. Lots of nature, dam right in front of the house and Voëlvlei dam within walking distance. Was so rested after the lovely quiet weekend and will definitely visit again...

                  Awesome 2 days at Silwerfontein. 1st night in the double-decker bus, then hiked up and stayed the 2nd night in the cave. Thanks to Karin who went out of her way to accommodate us!

                  There are cheap backpacker place better than this. Badly equipped and appointed. The solar electricity does not even power a hair dryer and no hot water in the morning. The host had to go and fetch towels as there was none. Stay away.
