We had an awesome overnight stay in the rooms above the cellar. The rooms were amazingly decorated, neat and spotless. One of the best places on our way to Franschoek. Service was great and the setting beautiful on a berry farm. Will definitely be back

Thanks for a very pleasant stay. The cottage was the best quality stay during our road trip. Clean, excellent facilities with the bonus of liqueur tasting as well as great and friendly service. We had everything we needed. The tranquillity of the farm was also a plus. We will definitely visit again!

We stayed all in all 5 days in one of the units above the tasting area. - One of our best stays ever in the area. All staff extremely friendly and help full. We will recommend Wildebraam to all our friends and family. Jeanette gave us outstanding service and your company is really blessed by having her in your employ.

We had a wonderful Christmas at Wildebraam! It was peaceful and the kids (ages 6&7) really enjoyed the freedom of the farm. Especially playing in the river and they fell in love with the 2 gorgeous dogs.

We stopped here for our annual return trip. Great variety of jams, pickles and spreads. And of course, a liqueur tasting and buying lots to take home! We had our own picnic on the gorgeous grounds too. One of our all time favourite stops.

We visited the place to pluck some black berries and youngberries which were in season. There's an entry price to the bushes, before your plucked berries get charged separately according to its weight. We got half buckets full of blackberries and youngberries for about 30 rands (inclusive of entry price for 2 adults). We found the youngberries were sweeter than...
