We were disappointed as soon as we arrived at Welgelee cottage. The cottage looked nothing like the photis on website and booking sites. Only one door worked in the whole cottage, toaster didn't work properly, fireplace in lounge looked like it was going to fall over. Fireplace in kitchen smoked up the whole kitchen that if we left door open...

We have come here many times as it's such a special farm off the beaten track! Yet close to Greyton and surrounded by beautiful mountain pass and fresh farm lands and apple farm. It accommodates camping, tented camps and cottages so something for everyone. Full of fun for children along the river banks and exceptional mountain biking and cycling for...

We spent a night camping at Oewerzicht. It was a beautiful, peaceful spot near the river. The bathrooms are modern and clean. It rained while we were there but we made the most of it and were able to buy dry firewood to braai. The farm is conveniently located near Greyton which is a beautiful town to explore with a...

Perfect place for a relaxing weekend away with friends or family. Not far from Cape Town. Spent lots of time swimming in the river and wandering through the orchards. Very clean and well run campsite. Would definitely stay again in the future.

I loved this place. I would only add a table outside to eat around. To have a lunch under the trees so to speak. Also the pump was quite noisy and was on alot. I know there was a wedding but the weedeater went for the whole day until 6 in the evening and was loud. I thought it would...

It's a working farm and because of the water restrictions we are given certain times to pump. There are tables outside each Tent but we will certainly look into your suggestion. Unfortunately the only time to make use of the weed-eater is during the week....

A great camping spot with lovely grass, a beautiful river and clean ablution facilities! Shade is a bit of a problem, but if you are fortunate to find a spot with a tree you have the perfect camping venue.

Glad you enjoyed your stay... Yes, you are right about the shade and we can't wait for the trees to grow in the camping site but in the meantime we have to be patient.... Looking forward to seeing you here again sometime soon...

One of thé clean & tidiest campsites we have ever stayed at. Very friendly staff & we loved the modern ablutions, especialy the outdoor showers. The scenery is breath taking with lots of activities, such as hiking & mountainbiking to do. We will definitely be back.

If you're looking for a campsite to relax and escape from the busy weeks of city life, this is it. The limited on site "activities" and no cell phone reception were features! However, it is a great starting point for mountain bike routes and running trails. The spacious camp sites were green and level, lovely river to cool off in,...

We stayed in one of the Uitsig cottages. Very ordinary accommodation in need of maintenance and cleaning .The setting however is beautiful. Pity the reality of the accommodation did not match the images on the website.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sonderend river that runs through Oewerzicht farm is the focal point of most leisure activities, i.e. swimming, fishing (blue gill or bass, on a catch release basis), tractor tubing, canoeing, etc. The farm has a couple of hiking & cycling trails and is also ideal for bird watching and more. There is a challenging 25km mountain bike trail and a tennis court for those who enjoy physical adventures. One of the features of the farm is the suspension bridge over the river - this is the only way, other than a boat or float, that guests can get from the main farm area to the six (6) safari tents on the banks of the river. About 50 meters from the river are three (3) farm style cottages, and four (4) Uitsig cottages are situated on the hill (about 300 meters from the river) with panoramic views of the Riviersonderend mountain range. Oewerzicht also offers 24 grass camp sites, various with reeded shade and power-points and modern ablution and braai facilites. ... more   less
