On our way from East London to CT my husband,our great dane puppy and I stopped over at Homtini. We arrived a bit late but Dylan was very accommodating, after getting a bit lost we found our cabin. It was just what we needed, our doggie explored whilst we made a fire and had a glass of wine. The unit...

This hidden treasure is easily accessible from the N2 main Garden Route highway, yet allows you to feel as if you are alone in the middle of the indigenous forest with wonderful mountain landscape as a backdrop. A 2-night stay allowed us to explore the old (gravel) "Seven Passes" road between George and Knysna. Constructed by Thomas Bain, it was...

We spent 3 nights in the tented camp. It was great. Warm and comfortable despite it being the middle of winter. The vie feels as if it continues forever. Frederik and Lisa were amazing hosts going out of their way to be of assistance even after we had left. Thank you

We arrived not quite knowing what to expect but Lisa soon got us settled. If quiet and tranquility is what you need then this is the place to stay for a recharge of those city batteries. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. This is near enough to Knysna and all it offers yet remote enough to just...

My wife and I were fortunate enough to get a booking in one of the two couples tents at Homtini Guest Farm for the past long weekend. ( 29/04 to 02/05) The tent was well equipped with a fridge, cupboard containing a full range of quality crockery and cutlery, a double bed and a dining table with two chairs. Outside,...

It was the very first time we went glamping. Wow, what a beautiful experience! So much better than camping! We were very warmly welcomed by the farm manager and his wife as well as the two farm dogs when we arrived just after 6pm on Monday, 28th March 2016. The accommodation was very comfortable and cosy and the view from...

If not a camper like I am, then the Homtini Guest Farm is the a great place for you! The tented camps are a home away home, with all the bells and whistles for a stress-free and relaxing city break. Imagine being able to say you've camped, but slept in a bed and had the option of turning on an...

My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary at the Canopy Forest Chalet and what an amazing experience we had! During our 5 night stay, we had sunshine and rain, yet we found ourselves spending most of our time on the balcony just enjoying the awesome views and wonderful nature sounds. The chalet is clean, comfortable and very private. We...

My husband and I stayed at Homtini for a couple of nights on our honeymoon and it was just magical! We loved the quiet and peacefulness of it all! It really felt like a break from the real world! We will definitely be returning!

After a bit of a mix up with our booking, the owner went out of her way to accommodate us on the required dates. We arrived in pouring rain, but were met with warm hospitality and given personal raincoats to use.
