Jakkalswater Guest Farm, is a nature-oriented guest farm, about 13 km outside Springbok, on the Nababeep road and about 6 km off the N7 highway, in the heart of Namaqualand.

It is nestled in the slopes of granite boulders of the Kamiesberg, where quiver trees overlook the valley and Klipspringers roam. Jakkalswater is entirely off the grid and green. The incredibly pure and delicious water is obtained from a natural underground fountain. Our power is supplied by solar panels and the geysers work with gas.

Here are a number of self-catering units, comfortably furnished and each equipped with all the basic necessities. Each of the rooms can accommodate between 2 and 4 guests and is serviced daily. Furthermore, there is also a camping site, where each camp has its own braai area, tap and canopy, with every 2 campsites sharing ambitious amenities. Here are also 3 log cabins, equipped and each with their own bathroom.

Jakkalswater also has a beautiful chapel, where your dream wedding can be held! It is nestled in the giant granite mountains and has a breathtaking view of the Namaqua Valley. There is a very large sheltered venue facility/lapa, where the function can be held - equipped with braai facilities, bathrooms and all the essential amenities. The venue is also ideal for seminars and gatherings, where large numbers of guests can gather and are currently hosting a number of well-known organisations' annual functions.

About half of the plant species here, do not occur anywhere else in the world. When the winter rains fall, the farm and surrounding granite boulders are wrapped in a floral blanket which creates the most beautiful floral spectacle in the world. With nearly 3,000 plant species, including goat bark vygies, daisies, Gazania's, cat tails etc.

Guests can walk around the farm and enjoy the scenery. Climb the granite hills and seek out the mysterious Klipspringers and the baboons, who make the mountains their home, or walk in the dry riverbanks, looking for the speckled padloper, while the floral kingdom is admired. Jakkalswater is a destination of its own, but also offers guests an ideal overnight option, en-route to Namibia, the Richtersveld and the northern west coast of South Africa. There are endless incredible day trips that can be done, with Jakkalswater as an ideal base. Come enjoy the privacy, endless views, breathtaking sunsets and exceptional starry skies!
