Welcome to a South African Yurt getaway!

Yurts are a unique weekend escape - often seen in the UK, Europe and other parts of the world. Starting in 2018, Southern Yurts brought this memorable getaway experience to the Overberg! Stay in the comfort of your own private Yurt: enjoy a local wine while watching the sun set over the nature conservancy, a walk through our Secret Forest, or a candle-lit hot tub under the stars.

The space
Southern Yurts is located on Porcupine Hills Guest Farm and the Diepklowe Nature Conservancy, located 16 km from Botrivier along the Van der Stel Pass. This stunning location forms the perfect setting to experience a getaway in a Yurt.

Nestled on a sloping hill that overlooks the raw beauty of the nature conservancy, the North-facing yurt is positioned for the perfect sunrise and sunset. Walk out onto a landing that has been built out of a 90-year old stone wall, and into your distinctive kitchen with fireplace. A couple of meters away you can enjoy the privacy and comfort of a hot shower in our beautiful and enclosed bathroom unit. Nothing about this accommodation is ordinary - if you're looking for an original and comfortable stay in breathtaking nature, the Yurt will provide it all.

Yurt Facilities:
The Yurt (bedroom) is equipped with all bedding and towels, spare blankets, a blow-fan/heater, a hot water bottle for cooler evenings, a chest of drawers, binoculars and wildlife/tree books, other reading material and playing cards. Charging points are located next to the bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials: tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper. As a self-catering kitchen, it is equipped with a kettle, toaster, small fridge, double gas cooking plate, fireplace, and includes crockery, pots, utensils and cutlery. We supply firewood, matches and firelighters (more wood can be bought at R50 per crate if needed).

The bathroom has a gas-geyser hot water shower, with toilet and basin. Shampoo, soaps, hand-lotion and toilet paper is provided, as well as your towels/hand towels.

DOGS:
As animal lovers and owners, we are pet-friendly (this must be pre-arranged/stated upon booking), but we do charge an additional cleaning fee of R100 per pet per night, payable in cash upon arrival. This covers the unavoidable extra cleaning that our dear furry friends bring to the site.

Pets are accepted on the condition that you bring their own beds, and that pets do not sleep on the bed, couches or cushions.
