This breathtaking accommodation has views that will take you breath away. The reception was warm and kind. The food top notch. Great nights rest and the rooms have all you need plus more. Tastefully decorated. The garden and swimming pool must surely be the most beautiful in the area, and highly appreciated in the Karoo heat. The spa treatment highly...

Berluda is an exceptional place to stay. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, the grounds are immaculately kept and the staff are amazing in their warmth and welcome. The food style is very good rural cooking rather than "cheffy" cuisine and Banzi produced an excellent braai just for us as other guests had not turned up. For other evenings...

We booked for 3 nights at Berluda on our way to St Francis bay! What a superb place. The cottages are perfect. Clean, well appointed, very comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Quiet and nestled in the foothills of the surrounding mountains. Close enough to the caves and other worthwhile sites but not in the center of town so...

We loved our stay at Berluda. Quiet, comfortable cottages - we had one opposite the pool which was perfect for kids to pop across to. The farm is peaceful and the staff friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

If you are interested in getting up close with ostriches and learning more about these highly interesting creatures, then a visit here is a must. You won't be able to ride an ostrich nor will you be part of a large group, but you'll learn a lot and have an enjoyable experience at this, South Africa's largest ostrich farming operation....
