Located in the scenic Schoemanshoek Valley, just outside of Oudtshoorn, De Opstal Country Lodge is a family owned property dating back to 1830. Charmingly rustic and tastefully furnished, the property retains its quaint country feel and the warm hospitality of the region. Lovingly restored and surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens, De Opstal consists of various farm buildings which have been creatively converted into 21 bedrooms. The rooms feature wooden doors, shutters and wide timber ceilings, together with modern conveniences. A large central fireplace dominates the lounge, creating an inviting sociable atmosphere where guests may mingle. Hearty traditional Karoo meals are served in the main restaurant (booking essential). Soak up the sun and fresh air from one of the sun loungers, conveniently positioned beside the pool.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
