About Shepherd's Keep Gîte Cabin

Have your own exclusive bush camp space close to the beach and lake. Unspoilt forest and sea views at an affordable price.

Encouraged by the peasant movement existing in France's mountain regions, Shepherd's Keep Gîte hosts a self-sustained farm on the Goukamma hiking trail.

This secluded cabin is a off-grid micro home. The access is by a jeep track running off the Blombos trail nearby and is a hidden part of a hamlet including farm homestead (100m North) and Safari camp (100m to East). The basic wooden cabin is among the trees with an unspoilt view of milkwood forest with distant sea views is geared for those wanting to experience essential simplicity. There is double bed, running water, and a hot shower under the stars. The cabin is for self catering but has no electricity but does have the basics: a gas plate, a patio braai area and kitchen utensils.

Other than the double bed there is a sleeper loft for kids (loft ladder is only suitable for agile clients). The cabin has a dedicated secluded dry composting toilet, perfect for those with an existing link to nature. The pristine Beach is a 15 min walk away.
