Wakkerstroom Farm Lodge is a world-renowned wetland and montane grassland destination, which is well-known for its many endemic bird species. The Farmhouse accommodates eight guests and the quaint adjacent bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, which sleeps two guests. Guests can also stay in Oom Hans' Cottage, a two-bedroom, self-catering cottage, with no electricity, but a gas geyser, fridge and stove. Another self-catering cottage, Badenhorst Cottage, is also available in town.The species to be found in the vast grassland include all three crane species, ground woodpecker, bald ibis, blue korhaan, the rudd's and botha’s larks, the white winged fluff tail and the cape eagle owl.Discover the quietness of a bygone era in the park-like gardens and farmhouse which has been in the family for nearly 130 years. We do self-catering, B&B or dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation. Emma is your personal chef and housekeeper, and she is an excellent cook. Her farm-style dinners are a long standing favourite amongst our regular guests, as the visitor's book testifies. We also have a separate, two-bedroom self-catering cottage called the Oom Hans' Cottage. It is located approximately 500 m from the farmhouse, and it is equipped with gas appliances only.Guests at Wakkerstroom Farm Lodge are ensured of complete privacy as both the farmhouse and Oom Hans' Cottage are rented out on an exclusive basis only. Whether organizing a family gathering or escaping from the bright city lights for some rest and solitude, Wakkerstroom Farm Lodge is the perfect exclusive retreat.

View is great, the team on the farm very helpful. Good collection of books. Thought provoking read by Peter Beckers book on the history of Mzilikazi The Path of Blood and the role the Robert Moffat played in his life .If it rains and you do not have a 4x4 then leave your car at the main house and walk in. The black turf, water and cars do not get on well

This is a old farm experience with all the amenities you need without electricity. If you are a cellphone and gadget addict find another place. For us it was heaven on earth. The girls servicing the cottage has a passion for their work and nothing is too much asked of them.
