Wolwefontein Lodge Colesberg
A drive to
the farm is almost like envisioning an oasis, a great contrast to the stark
beauty of the Karoo, as lovely green lands and a forest of Poplar trees lie
just below the guesthouse. Your hostess, Judy Rous, runs the guesthouse,
prepares and serves all the meals and believe in spending time with her
guests. Listen to her tales of Wolwefontein's rich history and about life on
the magical farm. Relax in the solidarity of the vast serene space at the
lodge and be in peace with the abundant wilderness and animal life.
Wolwefontein Lodge is situated on the farm Wolwefontein, 30km outside
Colesberg on the N9 between Colesberg and Noupoort. One can access the N1 via
Noupoort and meet up with the N1 again at Hanover.
At Wolwefontein, there is always heaps of fun stuff for children to do. Most of the year, there are little orphan lambs to feed, sometimes there may be even a baby buck. From August, the mares will have their foals running and playing nearby and if you are really lucky, you may even get to see a mare foaling. Aside from the animals on the farm, play is only limited to the imagination and the definite plus is that Mom and Dad can leave them to it and relax in peace.
Wolwefontein is quite nicely situated so as to allow day trips of the surrounding areas. Graaf-Reinet is a lovely little town to explore with much history. It is only 160km away! The Owl House is about 100km away so you can be sure of a nice day trip. Colesberg museum has much information about the Boer War and they offer interesting walks through the town and surrounding area with regards to the Boer War skirmishes and sites. Relax in the four large and spacious bedrooms, each having its own bathroom en suite or with a private bathroom to wash away the tension of your day. All rooms promise comfortable beds with crisp sheets for a restful night. There are two bedrooms that accommodate families of four each, a bedroom for two and a cosy bedroom with a fireplace that sleeps three.
Hearty Meals: Warm meals are served in the guesthouse dining room. Breakfast is a full English breakfast comprising of cereal, yoghurt, fruit when available, bacon and eggs. Dinners are served by prior arrangement and are mostly a two course meal consisting of a "homegrown" meat dish (mutton, beef or chicken), vegetables, salad and then a dessert.
Facilities: If there is ever time to spare, there is a TV in the lounge with SABC TV channels, E-TV and BOP. You can enjoy the braai facilities under the star covered sky or take a cool dip and swim in the reservoir near the stables. The reservoir is refilled daily by the windmill nearby as it fills all the animals water troughs so the water is clean and very chilly! In the winter, it is very cold and you might be lucky to experience snow! So if you want to build a snowman, July is the time to come. This is the time when you snuggle up near the fire with a mug of Hot Chocolate and a good book. There is undercover parking for your vehicle. Two cots are available for guests with babies or toddlers, free of charge.
