You cannot get closer to nature than this!

From a small boomslang, to the giraffe pair with their baby to the bushbuck ram and ewe grazing right in front of our chalet that is next to the river; plus all the variety of bucks on the farm and a nice 4x4 route ─ just wonderful! Friendly and helpful staff.

Nader aan die natuur kan jy nie!

Van 'n klein boomslangetjie, die kameelperdpaar met hul kleintjie, tot 'n bosbokram en ooitjie wat rustig wei reg voor ons chalet langs die rivier en al die ander boksoorte op die plaas en 'n lekker 4x4-roete ─ net wonderlik! Vriendelike en behulpsame personeel.

Very nice.

A wonderful place to rest your soul and great that the owners give guest the freedom of their farm. We were able to drive around and look at nature and wildlife. Will definitely go back.

Ongelooflik lekker.

'n Wonderlike stiplek vir jou siel en dis heerlik dat die eienaars die vryheid van hulle plaas aan hulle gaste uitleen. Ons kon rondry en die natuur en pragtige wildediere sien. Ons gaan beslis terug.

Serene off the beaten track, very memorable stay.

Our stay was extremely pleasant and Chris and Elizabeth were wonderful. From SMS-ing the best route for us to travel, to making us feel comfortable and surprising us with a freshly baked bread, they treated us like family. The view over the Fish River is magnificent and the hiking trail we did before checking out was great- just wear proper hiking boots. Driving through the game park we saw quite a few animals and birds. Would love to visit Wilgerfontein again and for a longer stay.

Thank you very much for the wonderful visit. Next time we will definitely come earlier to swim in the river. Thank you very much for the delicious sandwich on our arrival.

Baie mooi plek! Vriendelikste mense.

Baie dankie vir die heerlike kuier. Volgende keer kom ons definitief vroeër om in die rivier te swem. Baie dankie vir die lekker broodjie met ons aankoms.

Lovely view, peaceful and away from everything.

Lovely decor cottage - got everything you need, very peaceful and away from everything. Farm manager and wife and brother was extremely helpful. Didn't get to see many animals - they are very skittish and kept far from the car. But with binoculars was able to see Springbok, Impala, Wildebeest and a lot of steenbok. Also saw meerkat and the giraffe with the foal, they were closer to the car. Just a pity the weather was so varied from extremely hot (loved the garden sprays on the roof) to extreme windy and then cold and wet on the third day. Also disappointed that the sun set was directly into the cottage - without any curtains or screens it was a bit blinding. Then the other disappointment was that the braai is old and started falling apart on the last night.

It is unbelievably peaceful and pretty area.

Enjoyed the hiking and game routes. Everything you need is at the house. They could maybe just give a bit of attention to the drainage of the shower. Other than that we had a very nice stay and a lovely time.

Dit is ongelooflik rustig en mooi wêreld.

Het die stap en wild roetes baie geniet. Als wat jy nodig het is daar by huisie. Hulle kan net bietjie aandag gee aan stort geriewe se uitlope. Verder het ons baie lekker gebly en gekuier.

Ongelooflike lekker naweek, onbeskryflik mooi, met rus en vrede en dankbaarheid teenoor ons Skepper.

Woorde skiet te kort vandag om ons dank te betuig aan Christo en Elizabeth en ook Last en sy gesin wat alles in plek vir ons gehad het. Jul diens is puik en bederf is groot! Die plaas is pragtig met al die diere, plantegroei, rivier, damme en klowe en die paadjies wat ons kon ry. Ons het so naby aan ons Skepper gevoel die naweek, so gepas vir Paasnaweek. Kan nie wag om weer te gaan nie, dis absoluut rus vir die siel met die voëltjies wat vir jou musiek maak en die kabbelende rivierstroompies.

Beste Chris
Wat n wonderlike getuienis. Dankie dat jy dit met ons gedeel het. Ons sien daarna uit om julle weer in die toekoms op die plaas te ontvang.

Stunning, peaceful, fun family holiday.

This place is an absolute gem hidden away, we took our 14 year old teenager, 7 year old and 14 month old kids where there was very little technology and away from the hustle and bustle of city life, each and every one of us loved this holiday. We all loved going down the tubes, even our 14 month old, we enjoyed the self game drives. Swimming in the river. The beautiful scenery surrounding us. We will most definitely be back sooner than later. The hosts were all very friendly and accommodating. Elizabeth was kind enough to bake us a lovely bread that we thoroughly enjoyed. The farm manager "Last" was absolutely excellent at making us feel at home, making sure we are comfortable at all times and so helpful.

Baie dankie Chrito en Elizabeth vir jul gasvryheid en dat ons jul stukkie Hemel op aarde so kon geniet het. Daar is so baie wild gesien en vis gevang en lekker gestap op die plaas. Ons maak binnekort weer so! Sien julle definitief weer!

Skoonste plekkie met 'n pragtige uitsig en heerlike atmosfeer.

Ons het een nag oorgebly op pad see toe. Baie vriendelik ontvang en ons gasheer, Last, het ons op die hande gedra. Pynlik skoon en netjies. Sal dit definitief aanbeveel. Goeie waarde vir geld. Mens moet net genoeg tyd beplan vir die grondpad tot by die plaas. Verder puik!

Beste Charl. Ons is baie bly dat julle die tydjie op die plaas geniet het. Baie dankie vir die positiewe kommentaar ons sal dit aan Last oordra. Groete, Elizabeth Els

Very nice. Nice and peaceful away from the city. Definitely a must visit.

Very nice. The owners were friendly and hospitable, and offered us a free game drive, but we had to leave early again. The units are beautiful, very neat and clean and has everything you need. We saw lots of game, loads of buck etc. Wilgerfontein will definitely see us again and will also be highly recommended to family and friends. You will not regret staying at Wilgerfontein Private Game Farm.

Baie lekker gewees. Lekker rustig van stadslewe af. Definitief 'n moet besoek.

Baie lekker gewees. Die eienaars baie vriendelik en gasvry, het ons 'n gratis wildrit aangebied maar het reeds vroeg vertrek. Die eenhede is pragtig, baie netjies en skoon met alles wat mens nodig het. Ons het lekker baie wild gesien, baie bokke, ens. Wilgerfontein sal ons beslis weer sien en sal hoogs aanbeveel word vir familie en vriende. Julle sal nie spyt wees om by Wilgerfontein Private Game Farm 'n draai te maak nie.

It was peaceful with pleasant host and hostess.

We would recommend the accommodation to anyone who wants a getaway from the bustle of the city. We received very good service, but we had enough privacy to enjoy our holiday. Our host and hostess went through trouble to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They have a great amount of love for the game on their farm. It was peaceful to watch the game graze in the river with the sheep and the cattle. We would recommend it to anyone who is looking for to refresh the soul. Again, thank you very much for a pleasant holiday.

Dit was vreedsaam met aangename gasheer en gasvrou.

Ons sal die verblyf aanbeveel vir enigeen wat wil wegbreek van die stad se geraas. Ons het baie goeie diens ontvang, maar ons het genoeg privaatheid gehad om ons vakansie te geniet. Ons gasheer en gasvrou het uit hulle pad gegaan om ons verblyf so aangenaam moontlik te maak. Hulle het 'n groot liefde geopenbaar vir die wild op hulle plaas. Dit was vreedsaam om die wild deur die dag in die rivier te sien wei saam met die skape en beeste. Ons sal dit vir enigeen aanbeveel wat gemoedsrus soek in hulle lewe. Weereens, baie dankie vir 'n baie aangename vakansie.

It was a visit with absolute incredible hospitality and excellent value for money.

The chalets have a beautiful view on the Great Fish River. It is neat and clean and well equipped with everything a self-catering guest could need. The service and hospitality was wonderful and the tranquility of the area is recommendable. Our visit included a free 2-hour game drive where we saw many species of game from close by with interesting explanations about the game and the history of the area. Wilgerfontein will definitely see me again.

Dit was 'n besoek met absoluut ongelooflike gasvryheid en puik waarde vir geld.

Die chalets het 'n pragtige uitsig op die Groot Visrivier. Hulle is netjies en skoon en goed toegerus met alles wat die selfsorgtoeris wil hê. Die diens en gasvryheid was ongelooflik en die rustigheid van die omgewing is aan te bevele. Ons besoek het 'n gratis wildrit van 2 uur ingesluit waar ons talle wildspesies van naderby gesien het met interessante verduideliking oor die wild en die geskiedenis van die omgewing. Wilgerfontein sal my beslis weer sien.

Baie gerieflik vir een nag.

Mens word met die Karoo-geluide wakker. As jy weer jou batterye wil herlaai in die rustigheid van die natuur, kan jy nie beter doen as hier op die oewer van die Visrivier nie. Ons het eers vroegaand taamlik haastig die nogal gedugte pad na die plaas aangedurf, maar dit was die moeite werd. Omdat ons so laat opgedaag het, het ons gasheer baie vriendelik aangebied dat ons die volgende dag langer kon vertoef. Ons moes ongelukkig reeds vroeg vertrek, maar toe ons daardie selfde gedugte pad stadig kon vat, is ons beloon met alles van steenbokkies tot sekretarisvoëls, springbokke, blesbokke en swartwildebeeste. Ons is werklik spyt dat ons kuier so kort moes wees.

A lovely place where you can connect with nature.

Wilgerfontein is a lovely place where you can connect with nature whether you choose to go for a walk, go on a game drive around the farm or just chill under a tree and enjoy the peacefulness around you. Our group consisted of three couples so we booked out all three cottages. Bushbuck Gaze and Otter Spoor have superb views from their decks which overlook the river as well as front-row seats to breath-taking sunsets. On Golden Pond is set apart from the other two cottages and has a beautiful stoep/verandah which looks onto a small dam that attracts plenty of birdlife. The cottages are all beautifully decorated and very well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to returning. Thank you Kevin and Nicolette for sharing this special place with us.

Baie rustig, vriendelik en skoon. Alles wat moeë reisigers benodig!

Die uitsig was asemrowend. Dit was 'n spesiale plek vir 'n oornagstop. Ons het heerlik op die stoep gesit en die sonsondergang bewonder. Volgende oggend was 'n wildrit die kersie op die koek!

Dit was fantasties.

Dit was 'n belewenis. Pragtige omgewing en 'n asemrowende uitsig. Die game drive was ook baie lekker. Definitief 'n moet vir jonk en oud. Die hitte in die chalet was net bietjie erg gewees en die waaier het nie gehelp nie. Maar ons sal definitief weer gaan.
