De Opstal Country Lodge

A cosy hideaway with all the comforts of home

Spread through lush tropical gardens, De Opstal provides a unique stay in the heart of South Africa's ostrich country.

The original farm buildings, dating from 1830, have been lovingly retored 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.

Lovely setting

London, United Kingdom

We visited off season. The staff were really welcoming and went out of their way to help us. Very sweet little cottage rooms, quirky and with working fireplaces. Lovely grounds. Breakfast was good with lots on offer. The dining area/bar was welcoming.
