Picture yourself in a boat on a river with tangerine trees and marmalade skies…
Riversong Farm is a 175 hectare farm on the banks of the tranquil and beautiful Goukou River, which stretches lazily down to the Indian Ocean some 12 kilometres away. Here it meets the traditional and very popular seaside village of Stilbaai, famous for its Blue Flag status beaches and surfing.
We offer three wooden chalets and the main farmhouse, all fully equipped. The total number of beds is 16 at any one time. We supply braai wood and all bedding. The main farmhouse also has domestic help in the mornings.
Whether boating into the village, swimming, waterskiing or going on a booze cruise, there is a jetty and slipway from which to launch your activities. The tidal nature of the Goukou estuary ensures deep, clean and safe water all year round.
We have a two-man canoe for your use. We also have, for hire, a boat with a 25 HP engine, 2 SUPs and a kayak. Please enquire as to availability.
We are surrounded by miles of farm roads for running, hiking and mountain biking.
The farm stretches back for 5 kms through kloofs and hills, past beautiful freshwater dams, where there are caves with authentic Bushman paintings, and ending in the backlands of fynbos, protea and thatch.
The incredible birdlife on the farm is where Riversong derived its name. We wake up to the kingfishers and weavers and go to sleep to the sound of nightjars and owls
We have dogs, cats, sheep, a horse and rescued donkeys and ponies. All of these guys are resident and loved for their natural lifetime. They are all fed, housed and home-schooled by us and even have their own medical aid. Commercially we are amongst the world’s most unprofitable farmers.
Pets are welcome under certain conditions. We have a “Dog Policy” which needs to be agreed to when making your booking. Approval is required prior to arrival and there is an additional minimal charge. The protection of both our animals and yours as well as the consideration of non-doggy guests are very important to us.
