About Southern Yurts

Yurts have become stylish weekend escapes in the UK, Europe and many other parts of the world. Now, Southern Yurts is bringing this unique experience to the Overberg. Stay in the comfort of your own yurt: enjoy a local wine while watching the sunset over the nature conservancy, a walk through our Secret Forest, or a candle-lit shower under the stars.

Nestled on a sloping hill that overlooks the raw beauty of the nature conservancy, the North-facing yurt is positioned for the perfect sunrise and sunset. Walk out onto a deck that has been built out of a 90-year old stone wall, and into your distinctive kitchen with outdoor fireplace. A couple of meters away you can enjoy the privacy and comfort of a hot shower in our beautiful and enclosed bathroom unit. Nothing about this accommodation is ordinary - if you're looking for an original and comfortable stay in breathtaking nature, the yurt will provide it all.

Porcupine Hills Guest Farm forms part of the Diepklowe Nature Conservancy, located 16 kilometres from Botrivier along the Van der Stel Pass. In collaboration with Southern Yurts, we have set up a beautiful yurt for our guests to experience.

Wedding Venues: Porcupine Hills Guest Farm offers an enchanting wedding venue! The Secret Forest, a beautiful canopy of age-old trees, forms our 'Nature's Chapel'. If you would like to find out more about our packages, please contact info@porcupinehills.co.za.

Family friendly: The yurt is ideal for couple or friends looking for an adventurous but comfortable getaway. We allow children, but if they are accompanying 2 adults, we advise that the room may feel cramped. We can provide an extra mattress for young children.
