A countryside Karoo farm, complete with stables and milking parlor dating back to 1830, have been reinvented into the charming four star De Opstal Country Lodge. Located in the picturesque valley of Schoemanshoek, near the world famous Cango Caves of Oudtshoorn, this South Africa lodges offers guests old world ambiance along with wholesome hospitality during a South Africa tour.
21 en-suite rooms boast terracotta floors, open fire places, heavy wooden doors and shutters, and wide timber ceilings bearing the scars, buckles and blemishes of generations of use.
Family owned and operated, the De Opstal Country Lodge is set in a lush, exquisitely kept garden. The lodge has a salt water swimming pool and a rustic restaurant where traditional breakfasts and hearty farmâ€“style dinners are served.
Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
