About Silwerfontein Farm

Silwerfontein is a beautiful pet-friendly working farm that is declared a Natural Heritage Site, surrounding the Voëlvlei Dam, with stunning fynbos- and mountain views.

There are four charming cottages available, as well as a Double Decker Bus and two Campsites set in the forest. Since the farm borders on a nature conservancy and the area surrounding the Voëlvlei Dam, an interesting variety of game and birdlife can be seen.

The cottages are fully equipped and private, with clean bedding provided. Guests must bring their own bath- and swimming towels. Solar energy powers the lights, and additional oil lamps add to the ambience. Wood-burning fireplaces turn the cottages into snug and warm havens in winter. Wake up to the sound of nature; with no TVs, radios or hairdryers to disturb the peace.

A range of hiking- and biking trails are available, with more exiting routes in the process of being developed. We also have our own herd of wild ponies happily roaming the farm.

                  A great place for those who love a remote gettaway surrounded by birdlife, wild horses, buck and water. Karin is a wonderful host who sees to all your needs.

                  Had a lovely stay with my husband on my anniversary weekend. The peace and quite together with the views over the dam was simply amazing. The place overall was very nicely equipped., together with the hiking trails. Thank you so much.

                  The location is stunning. Just a short walk and we entered the forest area and took a walk through the camp site. The bird life was also just as amazing. Tulbach town is just a short drive and is a lovely town where we spent the afternoon and had a bit to eat.

                  Highly recommend Silverfontein farm. The views are ever changing and beautiful and the walks on the farm and through the forrest are so peaceful. We had our dogs with us and they highly recommend it as well

                  We had a lovely restful weekend away. However guests should understand the basic nature of the farm, the harsh environment and simple accommodation. The cottages are all joined and part of house that has been divided and so it is best that you know your neighbours or at least dont mind people close by. The facilities run on solar and gas which are constantly having issues. The cottages bedrooms are not separate from living areas so the bed becomes everyone home space. There is no oven or microwave so delicious braai foods are the order of the day (luckily there is plenty of wood). Fridge and...
