“Great for kids”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Lot's of stuff for the kids. Camel ride, donkey car, peddle car, feeding the animals etc. The restaurant is also nice with basic things to choose from. Fun day and the shop also good for small gifts.

“Lovely family outing.”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

We took our family to Wilgewandel whilst in Oudtshoorn.

It is a lovely, small and clean facility especially geared towards families. There are camel and donkey rides, a foefie slide, an animal farm, some trampolines and cars and some play gyms.

This is a lovely place for children to play whilst mom and dad have a bite to eat. The facilities are good. We also had a look at their lovely clean mini waterpark. This would keep the kids happy, especially on a hot Oudtshoorn day.

My only gripe is the tip jars at each station (especially the camel rides.) The "rides" are paid for and feel that these jars are totally inappropriate.

“Spacious Activity Farm”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

This place is excellent for teenagers! Most of the activities here are catered for older children and we saw that they had the most fun playing with their larger groups of friends. Younger children can only participate in playing with the farm animals displayed. Definitely a great place to stop by and rest as the foods and drinks facilities are highly rated. I highly recommend this place where adults can relax due to the cosy atmosphere while their kids spend their energy on the various fun activities!

“Little peace of heaven!”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

We escaped to Wilgewandel for a family weekend getaway..what a fabulous treat it was! The self catering accommodation was homely and relaxed and the atmosphere was fantastic, peaceful and quiet! The owners and staff made sure our stay was extremely comfortable and their attention to detail was superb..they thought of everything, even leaving out firewood so we could braai after our late arrival! The facilities and activities kept our 22month old daughter fascinated throughout our stay, the animals that she could feed, the camels, donkey cart and jungle gyms etc. The restaurant is also well equipped and has a lovely variety of foods to choose from! What an absolute haven! Wilgewandel will definitely be seeing us soon!

“Awesome activities, awesome food!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

I loved the pedal cart, pedal boat, camel rides, petting zoo and also the ostrich burgers. And the prices are reasonable too! Nothing about this place I did not like.
