Fynbos Guest Farm is only 12km from the very picturesque and historic town of Tulbagh. While you are in the vicinity it is highly recommended that you make an effort to visit this quaint little town with its many historical buildings and rich history.
If you enjoy your privacy while camping, then Fynbos Guest Farm should be the place for you. Most of the sites are separated from another by mounds of earth or neatly stacked logs. This is also acts as a good barrier against the wind, as some of the trees will attest to.
One cannot help notice that many of the trees are facing the same direction as the wind. Whilst we were at Fynbos Guest Farm we had a pretty severe South Easter blowing, but we felt that we were not much affected by it.
Another great feature of this camp site are all the built in braais. Each stand has its very own rock built braai and this added to the ambiance of this camp terrain, I don’t enjoy dodging the smoke around an open fire, and of course these braais eliminate that problem.
Unfortunately the traffic from the road was not the greatest of background noises, but I am sure on a windless day or when there is a change in the direction of the wind, this will hardly be noticeable.
By far the greatest attraction of this camp site must be the huge variety of animals, some enclosed in pens and many walking around freely. Exotic animals such as Emus and Llamas right down to the common chicken. This assortment of animals entertained all the children and some of the adults for much longer than I ever expected.
Other activities include a short child friendly hike, which took us about 45 minutes and if you are a cyclist don’t forget to bring your mountain bike along, as there are tracks on the farm and vicinity that will keep you sweating for hours on end.
