Rietfontein Guest Farm

Rietfontein Guest Farm (Guest House, Self Catering, Hiking, Astronomy)

Welcome to Rietfontein Guest Farm – your self-catering wilderness paradise. Modern life with all its hustle and bustle is all too often a source of great stress and chaos. The frantic pace at which so many of us live. Demands that we step off the hamster wheel. And every once in a while and rediscover the meaning of words like serenity and relaxation.

Nestled in the hills between Barrydale and Ladismith, in the scenic Little Karoo – an arid semi-desert located near the southern tip of Africa – you’ll find a welcoming oasis. Here you will find the Rietfontein Guest Farm. The Little Karoo is known for its warm hospitality. It’s charming towns and generous country cuisine.  Rietfontein Guest Farm is the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding region…

Day hiking

If you’re feeling adventurous you can hike Tristan’s trail to witness some magnificent views and dramatic scenery from the higher slopes on the Touwsberg Mountains. If you fancy yourself an extreme adventurer, you can climb Broer’s Kloof, depending on the time of year and weather permitting…


Because Rietfontein Farm is situated a significant distance from the glow of city lights that hinder a view of our beautiful night sky, it’s a great location for amateur astronomers to enjoy their pastime to their heart’s content…
