Die Rondekraal is a romantic escape for two. Built with sandstone and a thatched roof, furnished to maintains its historical charm. The stable doors with the upper part in glass ensure the endless landscape is not obscured.

The open plan design of Rondekraal includes a cosy fireplace and two rocking chairs at the glassed- in northerly end, a fully equipped kitchen/dining area, and a double bed with percale cotton bed linen. The bedroom features a Victorian bath and a semi-enclosed outdoor hot water shower with beautiful views.

Rondekraal has solar lighting, and gas for 4 burner hob, oven, fridge and  hot water. Rondekraal is fully equipped to be self-catering, although many guests enjoy having delicious two or three course dinners, by prior arrangement, delivered to their cottage. Breakfast is always served at the farm kitchen 2kms away.

The cottage takes its name from the beautiful packed-stone circular kraal adjacent, where there is a seating area and outdoor braai.  On chilly mornings, the east-facing corner is a welcome breakfast nook, while on hot days the delightful, secluded plunge pool and covered pergola  invites one to relax in and enjoy the distant views.

For the more energetic there are extensive mountain bike trails – and bikes for hire, and wonderful walking opportunities to the dramatic canyon and surrounds. There is a jeep track to the canyon and a sun downer at the canyon is particularly recommended.  Detailed maps of the farm and trails and reference works on flora and fauna are provided in the cottage.

Please note: wifi is available at reception, 2kms away – so this really is a time to switch off and immerse oneself in the natural rhythm and beautiful environs.

At Papkuilsfontein, enough has been left alone to give time it’s depth, and enough restored to ensure that everything’s utterly comfortable. It’s that sense of balance that makes Pakuilfontein so beguiling.
