Peaceful, off the beaten track, a real return to nature. Perfect to escape the city madness in summer especially at Christmas/New Year. A repeat visit for us and this time stayed in Waboomhuis. Good wifi in this chalet and close to the pool. Also nice to have a/c. Good sized fridge and freezer with lots of ice on arrival. Host...

Thank you for our stay at De Pakhuys. The chalet was not entirely clean, but still acceptable. We certainly enjoyed the scenery at the chalet as well as the hiking trails. Breathtakingly beautiful. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating.

The location of this place is the main attraction! If you like being off the beaten track, this is for you. Wonderful for photographers. It was quiet and the ablutions are adequate. Nature people, like we are will enjoy this place.

An Excellent place to stay and will also stay a special place in my eyes. We always visit de Pakhuys for our climbing trips in June Holiday, but I couldn't let an opportunity to stay there for a day in December. The vibe is also very different from June, very quiet and absolutely bliss.

We camped here for one night, it is a lovely place to camp, good facilities with shower block and a small kitchen. Great place to go walking. We had camp 4 and found that in the morning very early at 6am was noisy, since it was opposite the kitchen and two young guys decided to sing shout and generally wake...

My friends and I were extremely satisfied with the overall camping experience. The staff was extremely welcoming, the facilities were hygienic and our neighbouring campers were extremely polite. The only problem my friends and I had was the maintenance of the kloof hiking trail, as there were no clear paths after hiking for one hour and we ended up getting...

Our stay at De Pakhuys incredible. The location is breathtaking and the room was private and had an amazing view. There are so many activities on the farm and even in the heat of summer we had a wonderful time. The room was very clean and comfortable and Tracy and her family were very accommodating. I would love to stay...

It is a rock climbers dream but I would highly recommend a stay here to anyone that loves the outdoors. It is such a unique landscape and really is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Well worth the drive!

Great stay with very friendly people/staff. Really enjoyed the self catering tent as well as the cabin. Beautiful location. Lots of fun with the dogs accompanying us on every adventure. Great boulders.

“If you want total privacy, nab a gorgeous tent. Apparently very hot in the summer months though. Waboomhuis is lovely but less private.”
