Lounge in the sun, read a book from our in-house library and experience the
peaceful park-like gardens under the bluegum trees. Explore the farm by
horseback, footpaths, sundown tractor ride or enjoy one of hosts' many other
De Oude Kraal Country Estate is based on a 2400Ha working sheep farm owned by a 6th generation family where dedication and excellence is a way of living. Come and embrace the uniquely Free State experience with panoramic views and hearty hospitality combined with waist expanding meals and a myriad of wines. The concept of De Oude Kraal has its origin from the native Koi Tribe using the natural rocks from the area to build the kraal (enclosure) that kept their livestock safe from predators. The guest house is a natural extension from the Kraal concept, in that the guests immediately feel and enjoy the tranquility, security and serenity of De Oude Kraal Country Estate. Upon check-in there are a variety of options open to you concerning things to do. Go for a leisurely stroll through our extensive lush gardens, lounge by the pool with a book on loan from our in-house library or explore the main house. For the more adventurous guests hosts have clay pigeon shooting, hiking and horse-riding trails from beginner to advanced. You don't have to be an ornithologist to appreciate a rich and varied bird list as compiled by Judge Howie during his stay on the farm, and having a bird hide tucked away and fully equipped with local bird lists and binoculars, make for a very pleasant late afternoon activity.
Upon their arrival for afternoon check-in the guests are treated to a complimentary and traditional country tea with fresh home-baked cakes and tarts. There after embark on a Sundown drive by tractor and wagon on one of our custom designed trails and be treated to a spectacular Free State sunset and catch a glimpse of our herds of Springbuck and Blesbuck roaming free on the farm. Returning to the main house for dinner time, the guests are invited to visit Gerhard's in-house wine cellar - De Oude Kelder, and select a wine to compliment your dinner with friendly advice at hand if requested. Marie Lombard as the chef was born and raised at De Oude Kraal. She artfully combines farm style South African cooking with a touch of French flair to produce a 6-Course Gourmet dinner that delights all. A breakfast is served as a buffet that caters to all tastes. Following the breakfast you could embark on a day trip of your liking or just relax at De Oude Kraal.
