De Oude Kraal

A lovely old Free State farm where Gerhard and Marie have restored the original farmhouse and furnished it with family heirlooms. Only 35km south of Bloemfontein on the N1, De Oude Kraal is the perfect overnight stop to and from the Cape, or spend a few days unwinding on the farm.

The individually decorated garden suites and unique ensuite bathrooms feature fireplaces,  televisions, telephones, fans, heaters, tea/coffee facilities and private patios with some equipped with spa baths and under floor heating. Ideal for a romantic break away. Enjoy hearty breakfasts and superb dinners for which Marie is famous. Select your wines from Gerhard’s wine cellar underneath the main house, which is also a cozy wine tasting or dinner venue.

For the energetic and adventurous at heart, we have a 4X4 route, horse riding, walking trails, tennis court, swimming pool, clay pigeon shooting and bird hide. Our Thusanang Curio/Deli offers a variety of goods and gourmet picnic baskets while our Witvoet Koi kraal lapa caters for bigger functions. Private airstrip. Co-ordinates on request.
