A cosy and intimate hideaway with all the comforts of home

Spread through tropical gardens, this restored lodge provides a unique stay in the heart of South Africa's ostrich country. The original farm buildings, dating from 1830, have been lovingly re-designed in traditional Little Karoo style to create a cosy and intimate hideaway with all the comforts of home. Located just a few kilometres from Oudtshoorn, the lodge is in a perfect position to explore the many local sights.

Beautiful Views and Facilities


De Opstal is perfectly situated along one of the most beautiful tourist routes of South Africa. the Swartberg mountains make for a beautiful backdrop and his complimented by friendly service from the waiter to the management! Perfect spot to recharge and "farm feel" away from the city!
