Enjoy your stay!


Get away from the hustle and bustle of city life to Kwetu Guest Farm. Situated on a peaceful farm in Buffeljagsrivier – 11kms outside Swellendam, the third oldest town in South Africa. Our home, our place, that is how the Swahili word Kwetu translates. A simple word with a sense of belonging.

Kwetu is a refuge for nature lovers. Derived from the name “Atelier Kwetu”, this long gone island of peace provided shelter for single mothers in Lullingu. On the eastern corner of the Congo, run by eccentric Spanish nuns, it gave hope and comfort to those who needed it most.

Long gone but never forgotten, we wanted to keep its memory alive and gave our farm the name in memory of those ladies of courage who went the extra mile for the less fortunate and believed in a better, more welcoming world.

Numerous bird species including fish eagle, Stanley´s bustard, secretary birds and our beautiful national bird, the blue crane. More game to arrive the next couple of months. We hope transform one of the smaller dams on the farm into a fishing dam soon with bass. Fishermen beware.




Picnics provide a great excuse to relax, unwind and indulge your favourite pastime of enjoying food with family and friends. My most memorable picnics are the ones where all stops are pulled out. There is no better place to enjoy a picnic than on a farm among the wildlife with the amazing views and fresh air.  For the kids you can bring along a kite, frisbee, tennis ball and rackets and other outdoor games. Not forgetting the food, refreshments will be laid out decadently in the centre of the most colourful rugs and cushions.
