Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm for a walk, swim and further explore.

Papkuilsfontein is a special place, one I’m lucky enough to have been to at different times of year, mostly staying in the Gert Boom two bedroom cottage. As seen below in the early morning light. Its glorious big sky country this.

The giant blue gums that offer plenty of shade and an ideal place to hang the hammock.

Family graves we came across on the way to the rock pool.

The rock pool catching the evening sun, what a gift on a hot Summer’s day. Especially after a 6km circuit walk with my clients. Also some of the Rock Art found on the farm.

The Canyon is a must see, here it changes colors in the evening light.

With Incidental Travel clients and friends that I was accompanying, Andy and Pauline, what a treat.

Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm - A Truly Special Place!

Some places are more like gifts for the soul, rejuvenating escapes, where one is overcome by nature and humbled by true beauty. Papkuilsfontein is such a place. With it’s warm hosts, three privately placed cottages, canyon, rock pools to swim in and hectares to walk and explore. It’s magical here, which is why I am happy to book a year in advance, to make sure that I have something phenomenally special on my calendar to look forward to. See more at http://www.papkuilsfontein.com/ but better still make YOUR booking now.

One of the three cottages for hire.

The renovated barn where meals are served - or better still you can have a delicious three or four course dinner delivered to your cottage. Styling!

Taking a look at the swimming pool - better in summer for sure. Better still is the rock pool near the canyon for a close to nature chilly dip all year round.

Walking in search of those incredible spring flowers - and the rock art.

The kind of personal touch and detail that warms my heart.

This cute little guy was very curious about us as he sat on the rocks warming himself in the winter sun. He’s a Rock Hyrax - better know as a ‘dassie’. They are found throughout South Africa, and are said to be the closest relation to an elephant …. Now there’s an interesting thought.
