Escape to a tranquil and peaceful farm style holiday or weekend getaway and let us help you relax and switch off to the world.

 

The Farm was established around 1822 and has a wide variety of wild animals that roam freely, just like they would in their natural habitat with approximately 125 hectars of space to their beck and call.

 

The Farm is situated between Grahamstown and Bathurst in the Eastern Cape with good roads leading to and from 2 major centers.

 

Port Elizabeth and East London is less than two hours by road.   The “grasveld” and Acacia trees are in abundance and provide grazing for the animals.

We are particularly proud of our two Giraffe,  (male and female) who has over time become quite accustomed to humans and will let you within 30 meters of them before moving off.  This part of the Eastern Cape is often rather dry and we need to supplement their diet on occasion.

 

Other animals on The Farm include some Black wildebeest, who often charge around often aimlessly.  You will also see a large herd of Impala, some Springbuck and numerous Blesbok.  Other species include Red Hartebeest, Mountain Redbuck, Duiker and Grysbok.

 

Last count we saw 44 Mountain Tortoise and 9 Golden Mongoose making The Farm their home.  We were fortunate to have the Mongoose and Tortoise relocate here after being resqued.

There are various resident duck on the dams.  Spoonbills and a pair of Spurwing Geese are regular visitors. A Korri Bustard has been spotted, and our national bird the Blue Crane are often seen. If you are lucky you will also see a pair of Secretary Birds.

A variety of small birds visit the bird feeders situated at the two houses, and we ask that you fill the bird feeders with the bird seed provided, and feed the duck at Die Erf.
