In November 2016 to December 2016 we were guests of the African Family Farm and felt very comfortable and safe. Very nice and friendly atmosphere, perfect service in all matters. If we have the opportunity, we will definitely spend a few days in the coming years. Thanks again for the beautiful, unforgettable days!

Excellent place to be when you have small kids, up to 10 years, I'd say. The apartments are set up in the way it is easy to relax when you have children. The only think I missed was daily cleaning (there was none), better stove (only two cooking spots) and the pool could be cleaner. The owners are great and...

Clean, spacious cottages with adjacent large playground for kids, a little children's farm with a broad range of animals. The owners Stefan and Sabine are more than friendly and helpful.

The African Family Farm was our last stop in our vacation in South Africa and it was by far the most family and kid friendly stay in any respect. There are all facilities kids can dream of (various playgrounds, pool, separate activity house for kids, petting zoo, ultra friendly dogs etc. etc. The cottages are styled each individually and we...

We stayed at this beautiful gem for 12 days with our kids (7&9) and had a wonderful time! The location is very good, houtbaai is a very nice little town with a beach and capetown is only 20 minutes away by car.
