As we arrived, we were greeted by a friend of the manager whom was taking care of the property while management was out.. there were no other guests around (although weekend),...

One of the perils of travelling in South Africa is that the publicity for places to stay is often more enthusiastic than accurate. El Yolo One is a case in point. As other reviewers have stressed it is quiet and feels very remote; we were well looked after and our rooms were clean. BUT there was absolutely no evidence of...

Coming from Oxford in the UK, driving on dirt roads to a Karoo farm, may be a shock to unprepared visitors. Must have been a real African experience to them. Watching stars, you use a telescope, in the open night sky. If you hike in nature, nobody is holding your hand. Our guests are free to follow the map with...

We stayed here for one night when traveling down to mossel bay. We stayed in the log cabin which was spotlessly clean and so private. My 6 year old son loved it!!! and so did we so much so we are planning to stay again with some friends on the 18th Jan 2016. Stunning views and amazing landscapes.

What a pleasant surprise awaited us at EL YOLO OnE! We had the log cabin to our disposal and me-oh-my . . . great accommodation, explicit views, dog friendly reception and the swim in the dam with canoes to row was great. There is also a bench under shade where the only cellphone rception is avaialble - a true lifesaver...

As one leaves the N12, on the gravel road to El Yolo, you can feel your soul coming out of hiding. The breathtaking landscapes, wide open sky, solitude and heartfelt welcomes by Helene (Manageress and Chef) and Willem (owner) weaves its magic during your stay at El Yolo so that you leave with a sense of grounding and renewal. If...

All our guests are loving the farm and accommodation. It is just a pity, only a few make the effort to write a review.

If you are looking for a place in the Karoo to recharge your batteries, El Yolo One will do that for you. There a few accommodation options to chose from. We selected the berg chalet and were not disappointed. It features one bedroom with an open plan kitchen/lounge. There are two beds in the open area. A lovely deck gives...

This was once in a lifetime experience. I am living in the uk and have not seen my South African friends as regularly as I would like. I wanted to spend time with all of them at the same time for a few days. The El Yolo accomodation was all the fantastic nouns you can think of. We were a...

We had the privilege to celebrate my parents 49 wedding anniversary at El Yolo OnE. It was the most relaxing farm holiday we had, with scenic views of the mountains. For the outdoor enthusiasts there is a lot to do, hiking , 4x4 routes etc. The friendly staff and excellent Karoo cuisine made this a memorable holiday.

EL YOLO OnE is an enjoyable remote getaway just north of the Swartberg Mountains. Hospitality was beyond excellent. Accommodation in cottage left nothing to be desired, and waking up in the morning watching eland, springbok and blesbok in front of our cottage was special. Because it was the night before our anniversary, we chose not to self-cater but ask for...

“All accommodation tranquil. Mountain house very private.”

“We stayed in one of the cottages near the main lodge area. There is a cottage deeper into the mountains which we drove past to get to the waterfall - in retrospect this might have been a good place to stay as well.”
